Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain received a surprise PlayStation 4 patch earlier today, and it’s a big one, weighing in at well over 3GB in total. Alas, there’s no sign of the release’s infamous third chapter among the new files, as the patch notes for v1.21 merely mention a “modification of the agreement process”. Legal stuff, then, basically.
It’s still possible there’s more to this update than text tweaks, as 3GB is a lot for some legal mumbo-jumbo. We suspect dataminers will be digging into the source code as we type, but we have asked Konami for comment. Of course, that aforementioned final act is unlikely, as series creator Hideo Kojima notoriously left the company years ago – and has since released Death Stranding.
