Konami Further Details Critical Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Mission Bug, Team Is Working on a Patch
Discovered earlier this week, a critical bug in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain while using Quiet as your buddy in missions 29 and 42 may result in corrupted save files.
Today, Konami announced that the development team is working on a patch to fix this issue, while also repairing any save data affected by the bug. Further details about the update will be announced soon, and Konami adds, “We apologize deeply for the problem and thank you for your continued patience as we work to resolve the issue.”
In the meantime, there is a way for you to continue using Quiet in missions 29 or 42, but you have to follow these specific instructions:
The bug is triggered only under certain circumstances in Episode 29 or Episode 42 when Quiet is used as your buddy. However, you may still safely use Quiet in these missions if you use the Butterfly Emblem throughout the mission or avoid raising your Bond Level with Quiet to MAX during the course of the mission.
As a reminder, this bug affects The Phantom Pain on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.
