Metal Gear Solid V: the Definitive Experience Coming This Fall, Includes Ground Zeroes and All the DLC

Konami has announced a new version of Metal Gear Solid V that will include Ground Zeroes and all the DLC.

If you've been waiting to dive into Metal Gear Solid V, you might want to hold off a few weeks. Konami announced today that it will release Metal Gear Solid V: the Definitive Experience in October.

Metal Gear Solid V: the Definitive Experience will include both Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, as well as all the DLC for both games (you can see all the DLC included in the image below). It also includes Metal Gear Solid Online.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience is coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One on October 11 for $49.99.

Well that was entirely predictable from the moment Ground Zeros was announced.

Looks like I can finally buy Metal Gear Solid 5, unless of course Konami have dreamed up some way to be even worse than usual.

It's Konami, anything can happen.

I wonder if this is an apology for Metal Gear Survive?...

I'm trying to see this as just another "Game of the Year"-style offering, and not a kind of quiet admission that Konami has spent the last several years slaughtering golden-egg-laying geese.

I'm not entirely succeeding.

I don't usually avoid giving a company my money. Not even the shitty ones like EA. Just because I'm usually always happy to support the games industry. I feel that by putting money in, better quality games come out.

But I have a special place in my heart for Konami. Between the mistreatment of their employees, all of the bullshit with Kojima, the gimped development of MGS5, and the fact that they've killed almost all of their IPs, there really is no reason
to give a single penny to Konami anymore.

I'm probably going to wait until I can buy this bundle pre-owned from someone. Because it's Konami is literally the only reason I don't want it...

This game had DLC?? I don't remember th...*sees list*

Bwahahahahaha!!

No...you're right, Konami. You're right. That's certainly downloadable content. Bahaha! Definitely worth a GOTY collection...hehehe! Ohh I feel sad now. Nobody buy this if you have the main game.

Oh, nice to know everyone bought and played the non-definitive version of the game until now. As far as insulting rerelease naming goes, 'definitive' is almost as bad as 'complete'.

Can't wait for them to announce the localization of MGS3 Pachinko to round out the trilogy of lacklustre MGS announcements.

Or they're gonna announce MGS3 remake at TGS. Nah, them actually making those assets for something worthwhile is too much to hope for.

If you haven't played V yet...don't beat the game. I was into it at first, but by the time I finished it, I hated it. V is terrible and it takes a long time to realize it.

I'd be really mad if Konami never released Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain together. $49.99 is a steal compared to buying each part separately.

It's still an incomplete game. So what's the point?

I would worry about that too. Kojima was occasionally overly exploitational, but he cared about his work. A remake by the faceless coorporate entity Konami would probably tone up viscera, spectacle and jiggle physics while dumbing down and cutting story elements

If it is its not much of one, since all the DLC for MGSV and most of the DLC for MGO is cosmetics, and doesnt include preorder bonus cosmetics.

You may as well just buy the GZ and MGSV bundle.

Well i just remember a time when Silicon Knights remade MGS1 for the Gamecube, and it was faithful to the PS1 original and the only questionable thing about it being the somewhat exaggerated stunts Snake would pull off in cutscenes.

But then i suppose it depends on who they give it to, i presume thier internal slaves are being put to work on Survive, and i doubt it would be hard to find a freelance studio for a remake.

And even if it did happen i wouldnt buy it. I said before MGSV launched that we should make certain that game becomes thier crowning achievement in sales, and now thats come and gone we should make sure they never reach that record again.

This leaves me in a pretty crap situation. On one hand I want to buy this because I love MGS and I'd rather have GZ and TPP in one pack along with the rest of the garbage DLC's, but then again that means giving Konami my money which I'd really rather not do because I hate them.

I might just wait and see what other people think of it once it's been released.

Oh, that's right. GZ was a thing. And somehow it wasn't part of TPP despite being a prelude to it.

haha i didnt realise there was DLC for it as well

wow that is a sad, sad bunch of DLC.. $2usd and yes you to can actually put your hands above your head in an emote. haha they are literally selling horse armour, guess they didnt learn from bethesda.

im one of those people who ignored the series and just picked up this game for open world stealth and frankly now i see why i ignored the rest of the series. the plot is completely nonsensical, but its an ok game if you ignore the plot

The only way I would ever buy MGSV again is if they included a ULC feature so I could create my own Snake Tales, and play other peoples. The core gameplay is great, but once you've memorised all the effectove travel routes and objectives, and there's no story left, there's nothing to to maintain my interest. ULC levels with little text walls for story are what it needs.
