Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain to Receive Companion App for Mobile Phones

on August 25, 2015 12:33 PM

With just one week left until the highly anticipated launch of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Konami has confirmed that a companion app for the game will be available on mobile phones the same day. The app works as a second screen for Snake’s iDroid device and allows players to view the map and control music.

However, the app is not compatible with PC or Xbox 360 versions of the game. This app will most likely be very similar to the free app for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes that allowed players to listen to cassette tapes and manage a virtual Mother Base from their phone screens.


Fans of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes may well have taken advantage of the incredibly useful “MGSVGZ Companion App”, which allowed players to access Snake’s iDroid directly from their mobile device whilst playing the game. If you enjoyed this functionality, you’ll be pleased to know that a companion app will also be downloadable for MGSVTPP! Find more info on what to expect from the App below.

  • Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will have a companion app similar to the successful app for Ground Zeroes.
  • Like in Ground Zeroes the app can connect with the main game to show the in-game map as you play. Acting as a second screen map in the palm of your hand.
  • Using the app to navigate allows the player to see the map at all times and see more of the map on the screen than in game
  • The app also allows you to listen to all records / music that you obtain as you progress through the game.
  • The companion app is only available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Xbox One and will be available for download on September 1st, 2015, in time for the game’s launch

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be available for PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360 on September 1.
