There have been a ton of announcements today from the Paris Games Show, but amongst all this excitement Konami made an announcement involving Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. The PS4 Pro patch for the title will be releasing tomorrow, bringing the iconic game up to the PS4 Pro’s enhanced graphical quality. The Phantom Pain is still available for free as one of October’s PlayStation Plus games too, so make sure to download it while you still can!
Konami announced this news via a tweet:

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain originally released in 2015. What did we think of it? Check our review:
Easily the biggest change between this and previous entries in Metal Gear is the story’s emphasis, or rather the lack thereof. The narrative takes a backseat for a good portion of the experience. There are a few cutscenes between missions now and again, but besides the Prologue chapter (which, holy shit, you have to see to believe), most are short by Metal Gear standards. If you’re chomping at the bit for more story, various audio cassettes (remember those?!) are strewn throughout the battlefield, which you can play on your iDroid to catch up on events. I feel that the game really frees up with the story mostly out of the way, for reasons that we’ll get to. This device is where all of the game’s missions, your map, and Mother Base (more on that in a bit) can be found. While you’re using the iDroid, the game does not pause, so you better ensure you are in a safe location before you whip it out.
Will you be trying The Phantom Pain on the PS4 Pro?
