Konami will be releasing Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience for PC, PS4 and Xbox One on October 13th. The full package will be available for £34.99.

The Definitive Experience will include Ground Zeroes, The Phantom Pain, Metal Gear Online, post-release DLC and Mother Base currency.

Metal Gear Solid V has received collectively over 60 industry accolades and awards thus far,” said Tomotada Tashiro, President for Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. “The Definitive Experience will give players an opportunity to play the complete MGSV experience, without interruption. Additionally, with Metal Gear Online, players also get access to a completely unique multi-player setting that is designed for a truly engrossing gaming experience as well.”


Ground Zeroes takes place in 1975 and sets in motion a series of events that culminate in the stunning plotlines of The Phantom Pain. This game centers on Big Boss as he infiltrates a sprawling secret prison base called Camp Omega in Cuba on a rescue mission. He soon finds himself alone behind enemy lines with a truly non-linear mission that showcases key advances to the series made possible by its use of the FOX Engine.

The Phantom Pain continues the story of Big Boss in a non-linear and changing environment. Similarly, a host of acclaimed Metal Gear Solid features return in advanced forms, including expanded CQC (Close-Quarter Combat) skills, improved enemy AI, online elements that complement the single player campaign.

Metal Gear Online is a dedicated squad-based competitive multiplayer structure, which has been fully redesigned with the familiar gameplay and aesthetic styling of the acclaimed Metal Gear Solid series. The online element introduces Tactical Team Operations and features a ‘class system’ that more uniquely defines the strengths and abilities of player characters on the battlefield. Players can select from 3 distinct classes: Scout, Enforcer and Infiltrator.
