System Requirements for PC Release of Metal Gear Solid V: Groud Zeroes Released

on November 19, 2014 7:30 PM

I’ve been patiently waiting for awhile to see what the system requirements of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes would be after it was announced that it would be hitting PC earlier this year. Getting the Fox Engine to purr on a souped up PC looked like it might be a hefty task, but as it turns out it might not be all that taxing after all.

Over ton the Steam community page for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, the development team posted the official system requirements to juice the game. They are as follows:

Minimum Specifications:

OS: Windows Vista 64-Bit or later
Processor: Core i5 SandyBridge 4Core (4 Thread) 2.7GHz or above
Memory: 4 GB RAM or above
Graphics: GeForce GTX 650 or above
DirectX: Version 11 or above

Recommended Specifications:

OS: Windows Vista 64-Bit or later
Processor: Core i5 SandyBridge 4Core (4 Thread) 2.7GHz or above
Memory: 8 GB RAM or above
Graphics: GeForce GTX 760 or above
DirectX: Version 11 or above

They aren’t that terrible, even modest when compared to what Bethesda was claiming that The Evil Within would need. I almost find it comical that Windows Vista is even mentioned in the recquirements, but only an i5 SandyBridge CPU, 8GB of RAM and a GTX 760 seem pretty on point. Considering Intel is producing Haswell-E CPUs right now and will be releasing Skylake next year, while Nvidia has moved onto the 900 series of GTX cards, it doesn’t look like Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will be the game to force you to fervently scan for Black Friday component deals for a last second upgrade.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes releases on PC on Steam December 18th. Are you excited to sneak around the prologue to Phantom Pain on PC? Let me known in the comments below.
