The HD versions of Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 are now available on Xbox One through backward compatibility.
These two HD versions of some of gaming’s greatest stealth games can be installed either through the physical disc or by installing the digital version of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection.

Earlier in the year, Microsoft added Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker to the program which was accessible through the same collection disc. Now, with the addition of these two games, the HD Collection is fully playable on Xbox One and Xbox One X.
Metal Gear Solid 2 is a controversial but still remarkable game for the time it released. Instead of playing as the series’ main protagonist, Solid Snake, you’ll spend most of your time playing as Raiden. Sometimes you’ll even play as Raiden in the nude.
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater takes a more traditional approach and is definitely the better of the two games. Playing as Naked Snake, you’ll explore thick jungles in an effort to stop the oncoming Cold War.
