Game-breaking Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Bug Has Been Patched on PC and PS4

on September 14, 2015 9:02 AM

Last week, it was reported that a bug was discovered in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain that could corrupt player’s saves. This error was triggered when players used Quiet as a buddy on either Mission 29 or Mission 42. For PC and PS4 players, a new patch has been released that allows players to take Quiet on these missions and still progress in the story.

While not available yet for other consoles, Konami has confirmed that this patch is on its way to PS3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

The patch takes up 435.8 MB of memory on the PS4 and comes with various game fixes.

  • Fixed an issue where under specific conditions, the game halts progression in the black screens displayed after clearing Mission 29 and Mission 42.
  • Fixed the issue where once the prior issue is triggered, the save data goes directly to the black screen and game progression is halted.
  • Fixed the issue where using the selection controls during the tutorial when first buying an FOB the game halted progression.

There will also be login bonuses for players who play Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain during Tokyo Game Show. Starting on September 17, players who boot up MGSV will receive extra GMP, Fulton Points and resources.
