Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain has launched almost two weeks ago in all regions and the game thankfully doesn’t suffer from many major issues. One issue in particular, however, is especially annoying, as it causes the save file to become corrupted, forcing players to restore a backup of the save file or to start the game from the beginning. This issue is caused by bringing Quiet as a buddy on missions 29 and 42. Thankfully, this issue has finally been addressed on some formats by a new patch released a few hours ago.
The new Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain patch addresses not only this save corruption issue but also another issue which prevented players from continuing the game when using the selection controls during the tutorial when first buying a Forward Operating Base.
Here are the full patch notes for the PlayStation 4 version of the game.
- Fixed and issue where under specific conditions, the game halts progression in the black screen 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.
A release date for the patch on other formats has yet to be confirmed but it should be released very soon, according to Konami.
Last week we have reported that Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain has received a new Extra Extra High Settings mod, which allows players to play the game with even better graphics. These settings are very demanding so don’t be surprised if your PC struggles in running the game with them at 60 FPS.
Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain is now available in all regions on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
