Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is coming to the PC, and if you buy a shiny new GeForce like those we recommend in our latest System Guide, you may be able to get the game for free. Nvidia has announced that the game will be bundled with some GeForce GTX 900-series graphics cards and laptops with GeForce mobile graphics. Konami's latest stealth adventure will be available with some GTX 960, 970, 980, and 980 Ti graphics cards and certain GTX 980M and 970M-equipped mobile systems at select retailers worldwide. MGSV replaces Batman:
The Phantom Game Arkham Knight in its bundle offerings.

Nvidia has also posted a performance guide for The Phantom Pain's prologue chapter, Ground Zeroes, which explains how the game's graphics settings interact with its hardware. You may want to take some of this with a grain of salt, since it's vendor-supplied, but GeForce owners should get a decent idea of the performance levels they should expect.
