Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes, Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance, Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence, and Metal Gear Solid 4 are reportedly coming to PS5 in September.
The remaster collection is rumored to come out in two parts. The first part will consist of Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes, 2 and 3. Whereas Metal Gear Solid 4 remaster will get a standalone treatment. However, players will be able to purchase Metal Gear Solid 4 along with the collection.
There will be a physical release of the Metal Gear Solid collection containing three games on the disc. Players can avail Metal Gear Solid 4 through the code provided in the box or purchase it separately on PlayStation Store.
In the truest sense, the games will only be an HD remastered port, and not a remake. Therefore players can only expect to see improvements in graphics. The remaster collection will not make use of PS5’s patented HD Rumble or Haptic Feedback features for more immersive gameplay.
The remaster collection may also contain Metal Gear Solid 1 and 2 like the PS3 Legacy collection. On the other hand, players can expect to not find the skateboarding minigame or the dream sequence in the collection. It is speculated that even Peace Walker has been left out to create a clean remaster bundle containing only the core games.
The original Metal Gear Solid is already rumored to be remade as a PlayStation 5 exclusive. If true, the latter titles will not receive the same remake treatment as the original. However, it seems like simply remastering Metal Gear Solid 4 has been a challenge on its own. Therefore it is unlikely that the remaster will have any extra scenes or features and will only focus on retelling the original story.
