Konami has officially announced Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience, a collection containing Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Metal Gear Online, and all assorted DLC. The release was announced to Xbox One and PlayStation, with details on the PC version for Steam coming soon. Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience will be releasing in North America on October 11 for $49.99.
"Metal Gear Solid V has received collectively over 60 industry accolades and awards thus far," said Tomotada Tashiro, President for Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. "
"The Definitive Experience will give players an opportunity to play the complete MGSV experience, without interruption. Additionally, with Metal Gear Online, players also get access to a completely unique multi-player setting that is designed for a truly engrossing gaming experience as well."
Between this release and Metal Gear Survive, it's clear that Konami is hoping to keep the magic of Metal Gear alive, even without series creator' Hideo Kojima. On the bright side, Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain are still very much the creation of Kojima, so if you have yet to play the game, this is the version to pick up. If you have played Metal Gear Solid V, nothing particularly new has been added to the Definitive Edition; so you're buying it for this single package and extra DLC.
