Today has been an interesting day for fans who have purchased, or are going to purchase Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain for PC. At least we now have some more positive news to share.

One of the biggest debates between fans have been just when the game was unlocked. This has been confirmed as being 12am Eastern Time (USA). Today, news came out that the physical release of the game only featured a Steam installer, which is not the best news for people with capped internet connections or slow speeds.

While we PC owners awaiting for the game to unlock could feel slightly annoyed, we have one piece of positive news and that is that NVIDIA have released their drivers for the game as well as Mad Max. This means that the drivers should be optimised to get the best out of the games.

One thing that has been noticed by users so far is that an HBAO+ profile has been added for Metal Gear Solid 5: the Phantom Pain. This has been added to remove some issues around the ambient occlusion in the game. While it causes some performance issues, it mainly makes the game look better by removing an annoying aura around objects and characters.

We’ll have to wait for the game to finally unlock before we can see how the game performs, though it looks like everybody will be downloading the game. Hopefully Steam won’t decide to have issues at this point, especially with the game being so popular. With no pre-load and no real physical release, it looks like Konami are favouring the digital only approach to this release.

What are your thoughts on Metal Gear Solid 5 so far? Do you feel Konami are letting PC gamers down? Let us know your thoughts below.
