When it comes to the games I have always wanted to play in the palm of my hands, Metal Gear Solid tops that list. The series is iconic, and with a deep story, I felt it would be a great fit for bursts of portable play. So, when the Master Collection was announced, I was pumped to see it come to PC and finally give me that opportunity. Unfortunately, it did have some issues that made it nearly unplayable, like the audio not working in cutscenes. While this could be fixed with a workaround, it seems we won't need it anymore!


From an update two days ago, official Steam Deck support was added to both Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater from the Master Collection. This means that the audio, cutscene, and any other issues are now fixed! These were the only two games of the collection that were having any issues that needed a workaround, so with this fixed, the games should now be fully playable on the handheld!

This update follows an update from December of last year, which added an Audio Settings feature and Window mode. Both of these may seem to be a bit small, but with how the games were released, I am extremely happy to see the improvements. As for Deck play, with everything working, now is a great time to get into the series and play it! As soon as I have some free time, I know that's what I will be doing.

The Master Collection is available on Steam for $59.99, while the individual games are $19.99 each. The collection contains Metal Gear 1 and 2, the first three games of the Metal Gear Solid series, and some bonus content!
