MGS 5 The Phantom Pain Hotfix for Phenom II, Athlon II Released

Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain got a hotfix that attends to launch problems on Phenom II, Athlon II and other CPUs.

If you are playing Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain, you might have heard that it is facing problems on certain CPUs when it comes to launching the game.

However, the developers are working around the clock and we already have a beta patch (a hotfix of sorts) that attends to one of the most common problems that fans are facing.

The Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain beta patch version 1.002 has addressed the problem where the game was not launching on Phenom II as well as Athlon II as well as all other CPUs that don’t support SSE4.1 – this also includes Core2 DUO.

Apparently, this is the only problem fixed by Konami so far although a number of other issues still remain unresolved. For instance we have picked up complaints regarding a black screen that appears in Chapter 1 of the game.

If you are playing Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain on PC or the consoles and have encountered some other problems do raise your voice in the comments below so that we know how far the remedying has come after the launch.

In case you have been living under a rock so far, MGS5 released today and is already keeping us busy at all times. Don’t miss out!
