Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Gets a PS4 Pro Patch

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Gets a PS4 Pro Patch”

As a reminder, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is one of the PlayStation Plus Instant Game LIbrary games for October 2017.

We don't know what to expect of the update - including how it will actually improve the game's visuals and performance - but we probably should expect some hefty upgrades to bring it up to the standards of expectations across the PS4 Pro install base. Unfortunately, it will not be a native 4K as it will most likely use checkboarding once again, similar to what developers have been using to display 4K resolution on their games for the PS4 Pro.

The Phantom Pain was a cross-generation game and it remains one of the rare open world games to render at 1080p with 60 fps. No word yet when the Xbox One version of the game will be enhanced for the Xbox One X. Those with a PS4 Pro but not a 4k screen can also benefit from the increased framerate. Those with Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience, which comes with MGS V: Ground Zeroes, will also benefit from the performance improvements in the prequel. The game will still be available for free if you're a PS Plus subscriber until November 2.
