Here’s the full Metal Gear Solid V update 1.16 patch notes (although they’re rather short, so don’t get too excited about reading a bunch of specifics):

Adds support for Playstation 4 Pro with enhanced performance.

This patch makes an already great game even better. Check out our Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain review to find out what makes it so special. Here’s how reviewer Paulmichael Contreras summarized the open-world stealth title:

Incredibly, unbelievably, what we have here is a nearly perfect finale to the Metal Gear franchise. I truly believe that The Phantom Pain is where Kojima always envisioned he would take the franchise. This is personalized, open-world infiltration at its finest. You have so many options at your disposal with which to complete your missions, it truly is mind-boggling. Whether you sneak in, secure your objective, and sneak out without alerting a single enemy combatant, or run in guns blazing with air support at your back, how you plan and execute your attack is key, and it’s amazingly rewarding to see a well-thought out assault come to fruition. On that same token, recovering from a mistake such as not accounting for an enemy or circumstance that the game throws at you can be its own form of exhilaration as you race to find a secure spot from which to reset. If this is truly the last game in the series with Kojima’s name on it, then there is no better way to exit the stage gracefully.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is currently free for PlayStation Plus members.
