Konami: “To avoid the bug, you just can’t use Quiet as your buddy.”
Teenage boys everywhere: “Awwww maaaan!”
There’s something seriously wrong with Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and for once, we’re not talking about the thoroughly distasteful presence of Quiet…
… wait, what? The presence of Quiet is the problem? Oh man, I thought we might get a day off talking about that one!
Konami have today announced on their website the following information about an MGSV game breaking bug:
Let’s just take a moment to digest that. There’s an MGSV game breaking bug, that occurs when you meet the following conditions:
- You have Quiet as a buddy – for context, there are very few buddies to choose from in MGSV other than Quiet – and
- You start Mission 29 or Mission 42, and
- You’re playing the game on any of the systems it has been released for.
That’s it. That’s literally all you need to do to be in with a chance of triggering this MGSV game breaking bug, that halts your progress in the game and leaves you, presumably, unable to advance further. It’s a wonder nearly everyone hasn’t tripped over this MGSV game breaking bug already.
Holy play-testing Konami, that’s appalling!
