Metal Gear Games Are Out Now On GOG
Multiple Metal Gear games will be available to purchase on GOG, including Metal Gear Solid.
The Metal Gear series is hitting PC via GOG, Konami has announced. Previously, only a select few games in the franchise were available outside of consoles. They aren't the only Konami games hitting the service, either.
Metal Gear, Metal Gear Solid, and Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance were all rated in Taiwan prior to the official announcement. Metal Gear Solid and Substance actually had come to PC before, and Metal Gear Solid V was also released for PC, but this should give those who never play on PlayStation or Xbox a chance to experience more of the franchise. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots remains a PS3 exclusive.
The new GOG offerings don't seem to have any enhancements, and you're getting the original Metal Gear Solid rather than the GameCube remake. Substance does feature some enhancements and extra content not found in Metal Gear Solid 2's original release.
This also isn't the entire Metal Gear saga up until that point. Metal Gear 2 isn't listed, and that game's story has some interesting connections to Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
Releasing as the Konami Collector's Series, you'll also be able to get five Castlevania and Contra games, including Super C, Dracula's Curse, and Simon's Quest. These games originally released on the NES. Along with the Metal Gear games, the total cost for all of Konami's titles is only $32.
