Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection – Volume 1 is available now on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. The collection contains the iconic Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, along with multiple bonus games, digital screenplays, master books, and more. We had a great time with the Master Collection, stating, “Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection – Volume 1 serves as both a fantastic collection of video games and as an impressively detailed look at the evolution of the iconic video games series, but is unfortunately hampered by a sense of déjà vu due to providing few upgrades to the core games from the previous HD collection release. Despite this, the Master Collection remains the only way to be able to experience these games on modern consoles and each title is well worth revisiting. The real stars of this collection are the screenplay and master books which provide meticulously crafted breakdowns of each game and serve as a treasure trove of information for die-hard fans to pore over.” You can check out the launch trailer above and read below for more details:
