MGSV: Ground Zeroes Save Transfers to The Phantom Pain Explained
Metal Gear Informer reports that Konami has released info on how you'll be able to transfer your save data going from Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes to The Phantom Pain. Ground Zeroes will obviously carry its save data over to the last-gen and current-gen versions of The Phantom Pain (see the provided Konami picture below for more details), we didn't see its bonuses coming. In particular, you'll be able to equip the sneaking suit Snake had in Ground Zeroes. The Phantom Pain's new base will be staffed by the POWs you saved during Ground Zeroes. You'll also be able to revisit Camp Omega as well.
Here's what Kojima said about revisiting Camp Omega:
People who own GZ will be able to play a different mission(s) at Camp Omega in TPP. That’s the current plan. There’s something of a big feature involved. It’s never been done in the games industry before. So I can’t go into detail about it, but I think when you experience it for yourselves you’ll be surprised. It’s something that’s only possible through video games.
Hideo Kojima has announced that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain would be releasing on Sept. 1 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360. Steam will be getting The Phantom Pain on Sept. 15. There's also a Collector's Edition of MGSV that is expected to cost $99, which will include a behind the scenes Blu-ray, a cloth map, a steelbook case and a half-size replica of Snake's artificial arm. For those wondering about the digital content, it will include a variety of camouflage outfits and cardboard box disguises for Snake. The digital content will also include exclusive equipment and gear to use in The Phantom Pain and in Metal Gear Online.
