Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 Reportedly Features Content Warning for ‘Potentially Outdated’ Material

While it hasn’t been confirmed which specific “expressions and themes” are considered outdated, there is speculation that it could pertain to the portrayal of female characters and the depiction of smoking in the games. Smoking is a recurring element in the Metal Gear series, and there are moments where characters smoke. For example, in Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, the player must make the protagonist, Snake, smoke a cigarette to calm his nerves before a specific sequence.
