Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 PS5 PS4

Konami's Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 is a nostalgic amalgamation of Snake's earliest outings, and it's out today on PS5 and PS4. Purists will notice minor imperfections, mainly in how the older titles are presented, but worry not, as fixes have been promised and are currently en route, though no timeframe was given.

IGN was furnished with a list of known issues and their intended solutions. Beginning with the bonus content for NES ports of Metal Gear and Snake's Revenge, some of the subtitles don't match the audio, which will be rectified. Additional visual options are intended, including a CRT scanline filter and the ability to change the pixel aspect ratio, but further down the road.

Probably the most meaningful are fixes planned across the Metal Gear Solid trilogy, and a patch to reduce processing load is planned. Somewhat worryingly, Konami specifically singled out Metal Gear Solid 2, warning that the game may significantly slow down during certain cutscenes.The MSX versions of Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2, in addition to Metal Gear Solid 1, 2, and 3, will be able to switch between windowed and full-screen mode from the options menu at the title screen.
