Big Boss gets in training for the PC release.

There was a bit a false alarm regarding the Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes PC specs last week, but there’s no mistake about these ones now being official. The minimum and recommended specs have been posted in an announcement on the game’s Steam community hub.

To get right to it, here they are:

Minimum Specifications:

OS: Windows Vista 64-Bit or later
Processor: Core i5 SandyBridge 4Core (4 Thread) 2.7GHz or above
Memory: 4 GB RAM or above
Graphics: GeForce GTX 650 or above
DirectX: Version 11 or above

Recommended Specifications:

OS: Windows Vista 64-Bit or later
Processor: Core i5 SandyBridge 4Core (4 Thread) 2.7GHz or above
Memory: 8 GB RAM or above
Graphics: GeForce GTX 760 or above
DirectX: Version 11 or above

Konami also note that “there’s a good chance your rig can pull off a variety of in-game settings with a different piece of hardware than what’s listed below,” so the specs should (as usual) be taken as guidelines.

There’s a distinct lack of AMD cards (or processors) referenced, but based on this hierarchy chart from Tom’s Hardware (and assuming the Fox Engine doesn’t hate AMD stuff) the minimum/recommended AMD cards are likely to be something like:

Min: 6870/7790 or better.

Recommended: 7950/R9 280 or better.

If you missed the prior announcement about Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes’ mouse and keyboard controls (and 60fps frame-rate cap,) you can read that over here.
