With just a few more weeks to go before Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain arrives on September 1, Konami has announced resolution and frame rate details for the game across its various platforms.

The PlayStation 4 edition will run at 1080p/60fps, while the Xbox One version will run at 900p/60fps. As is often the case, the PC edition stands to look the best, provided your computer can run it (see specs here).

Both last-generation versions of The Phantom Pain run at an equal 720p/30fps.

According to GameSpot's sources, Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima will leave Konami after the game ships next month. Just recently, a Nikkei report exposed the troubling culture inside of Konami.

The PC version of The Phantom Pain was originally supposed to launch on September 15, but Konami this week brought forward the game's release date to match up with the console version. Konami also announced that everyone who preorders The Phantom Pain on Steam gets a free copy of Ground Zeroes.

In other Phantom Pain news this week, Konami published a bloody new trailer and confirmed that the game's multiplayer mode--Metal Gear Online--will not be available at launch.
