Unfortunately for Steam users on PC, Konami has confirmed that there will be no pre-loading option for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

The online community manager for Metal Gear, Robert Allen Peeler, explained via multiple tweets that the game would not be available for pre-download, even though it’s a fairly common practice these days.

Kind of a bummer for those PC users who were planning on playing when the game releases at midnight.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain releases on September 1 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
