In other news, Konami has announced that a companion app for The Phantom Pain is launching on September 1 and will only be available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Xbox One. Here’s some details:

  • 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.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain launches worldwide on September 1, with Metal Gear Online going live on October 6.
