Metal Gear Solid 5 will have horse armour DLC

UPDATE: And the horse armour costs 79p. Live now exclusively on Xbox platforms.

UPDATE 6th October 2015: Metal Gear Solid 5's costume DLC is live now. [Editor's note: It appears that this is only on Xbox One and Xbox 360. The PlayStation and PC versions have yet to arrive, but an alleged screencap of a since-removed listing on the PlayStation Store suggests a 20th October release.]

Each DLC item, including the horse armour, costs 79p.

Here's the official description of the Tuxedo skin:

And here's the description for the Western Tack horse armour:

I quite like the description for the Parade Tack horse armour, too:

This one, though, for the Jumpsuit, is a tad curious:

There's also a Sneaking Suit for female staff only.

Here's Fatigues for Naked Snake:

And finally, the Sneaking Suit for Naked Snake:

ORIGINAL STORY 17th September 2015: Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain will be getting costume DLC.

Revealed during Konami's Tokyo Games Show panel (via JunkerHQ on Twitter), the DLC will consist of a couple pieces of ornate horse armour, along with a handful of wearable costumes from Metal Gear Solid 3.

The men's outfits consist of a tuxedo, MGS3's version of stealth camo, and a new set of jungle fatigues. The women's wear (which can be equipped by any female prisoner you've rescued, who you can then play as) includes the trademark outfits of both The Boss and Eva from Snake Eater.

No mention was made as to the price of this DLC or when it's coming, nor did Konami say if any story DLC is in development. Given Kojima's spotty relationship with the publisher, I wouldn't hold my breath on that.

Here's pics of the upcoming outfits:
