Metal Gear Solid Steam Sale Reduces Phantom Pain’s Price To $28

by Mike Guarino


Now is a good time to hop into the Metal Gear Solid series if you haven’t already, as Steam is currently running a sale on the few games in the series that are on the service and offers some pretty great discounts. The sales are for the games only, however, as DLC items are not discounted.

The 3 games that are discounted are Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Revengeance and Ground Zeroes are 75% off, bringing their prices down to $7.49 and $4.99, respectively. The Phantom Pain is 30% off, bringing its normal price of $39.99 down to $27.99.

The sale for the games on Steam will come to an end on Monday, May 30th at 10AM Pacific. You can check out the sale by clicking right here.

The Phantom Pain recently received patch 1.12, which brought many tweaks and fixes to the online portion of the game. Scroll down for a portion of the tweaks, and click right here for the full patch notes.
