Konami will release a software update for Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain and Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes today that adds support for PlayStation 4 Pro hardware. The upgrade patch will offer improved performance for the open-world stealth game, Konami said.
While Konami didn’t provide exact specifications or patch notes for today’s patch, it did offer some details about what to expect. From the Metal Gear Solid Facebook:
If you have a PS4 Pro and 4K screen, you can now enjoy [Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain] at a higher resolution and a more stable frame rate.
Even if you have a 1080p screen, you’ll still enjoy the improved performance thanks to today’s patch.
And if you’ve got [Metal Gear Solid 5: The Definitive Experience], the patch also brings with it performance improvements to [Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes].
We contacted Konami for more details, and were told that the PS4 Pro upgrade patch will offer a more stable frame rate that “for certain titles, will mainly occur during cut scenes when using 1080p screens.” Konami also said the patch will offer support for resolution “up [to] 2560x1440 on 4K screens.” There will also be unspecified bug fixes.
Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is currently available as a free download for PlayStation Plus subscribers on PS4. The title will leave PS Plus’ batch of free titles on Nov. 2.
