With the release of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain being just a week away we are learning plenty of new details about the game. One of these being that a new app will be available to aid your progress in the game.
For those who used the similar app available for Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes you’ll know what to expect. During gameplay you’ll be able to access Snake’s iDroid. This allows for the player to see the game map that can be viewed in the game, but in more detail.
Another interesting addition to the app will be the ability to listen to any of the cassettes that you’ve managed to discover. This means the records and music that are features in the game. Whether people will actually use the app is another matter. Do we really need a second screen when all our focus should be on getting through our mission?
For some the answer to that will obviously be yes. It will be interesting to see what people think about the app when it is released. This will be available September 1, to coincide with the release of the game. Whether this will be available for the PC version though has yet to be confirmed.
It will be interesting to see if this is another issue with the PC version, as we already know that the multiplayer won’t be available until early 2016, and there will be no pre-load. While these are mostly small issues (the multiplayer is of course not) it still does raise questions on the treatment of PC fans. Hopefully everything else will run smoothly with this versions release.
