A part of the enchantment of online game remasters and remakes is the prospect of enjoying an outdated recreation on higher {hardware} that may, ostensibly, run it higher than your outdated console did again within the day. That’s the hope, at the least. Sadly, not each “remaster” is an enchancment over its supply materials—simply ask the Grand Theft Auto Trilogy assortment. Now, eyes are turning towards Konami’s upcoming Steel Gear Strong: Grasp Assortment Vol. 1., with followers hoping it doesn’t run into those self same points. On that entrance, at the moment noticed the emergence of 1 new barely disappointing tidbit.

The unique 1998 PlayStation Steel Gear Strong ran at 30 frames per second, and Konami has now confirmed that can nonetheless be the case for the newly remastered version launching within the Assortment on October 24. Information of this comes from a graph on the compilation’s official website, which says the primary MGS journey will run at 30fps on all platforms, whereas Steel Gear Strong 2: Sons of Liberty and Steel Gear Strong 3: Snake Eater will run at 60fps on all programs apart from the Nintendo Swap.

To be clear, the unique Steel Gear Strong ran at 30fps when it launched in 1998, but it surely being locked to that decrease framerate throughout the board appears odd in 2023, particularly when its sequels will apparently have some scaling relying on which platform you purchase them on. (For reference, MGS2 initially ran at 60fps, whereas MGS3 was initially a 30fps recreation.)

Right here’s the complete rundown:

There’s been chatter concerning the video games’ graphical resolutions as effectively. It’s a bummer to see that none of those video games will run at 4K decision, even on PC, PlayStation 5, or Xbox Collection X/S. This lack of 4K assist was confirmed again in August.

All of this comes forward of Konami’s separate, upcoming Steel Gear Strong 3: Snake Eater remake. That’s titled Steel Gear Strong Δ: Snake Eater, presumably so the quantity doesn’t scare anybody off from enjoying the sport. MGS3 was a prequel in any case, so that you didn’t must know all the things getting in to grasp it.
