While the first volume of the Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection brought a trilogy of classic stealth games and their 8-bit predecessors to modern hardware, it did come with a few caveats, with fans noting various technical issues in the weeks since launch. Thankfully a variety of those issues have been addressed with a new update on PC, which has also brought with it a couple of new options.

For starters every game now features audio sliders for the main menu and in-game sound. Aspect ratio can also be changed for the first Metal Gear Solid and the classic NES games, with the former also allowing you to turn off smoothing and enable a CRT filter.

As for Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3, the updates are less major but various key issues have been tackled, such as missing assets in the former and low-resolution face camo in the latter.

Not every issue has been addressed with this patch, however, with Konami confirming it is working on addressing a few issues such as issues with analog controls and some cutscenes in Metal Gear Solid 1.

This latest Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 patch is now available for the Steam versions of these games with the console versions getting updated sometime in January.
