Konami also shared some details on the companion app:


  • Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will have a companion app similar to the successful app for Ground Zeroes
  • Like in Ground Zeroes the app can connect with the main game to show the in-game map as you play. Acting as a second screen map in the palm of your hand. 
  • Using the app to navigate allows the player to see the map at all times and see more of the map on the screen than in game 
  • The app also allows you to listen to all records / music that you obtain as you progress through the game. 
  • The companion app is only available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Xbox One and will be available for download on Sept. 1, 2015, in time for the game’s launch.
