If you just can't get enough of MGSV, you can take part of it with you.

Publisher Konami has announced that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will get a companion app, not dissimilar to the app that was available for Ground Zeroes .

The new app will let you use your phone as a legitimate second screen to look at the in-game map, and it will also allow you to listen to any music you discover when playing the game. The app works with the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PlayStation 3 versions but not with the Xbox 360 or PC iterations, for some reason.

Who's getting it? The only companion app I ever downloaded was for last year's Assassin's Creed Unity , primarily because if you didn't participate in the app's puzzles, certain treasure boxes remained locked in the game. It was a stupid setup to start and eventually, Ubisoft ditched the idea…good move, that.

As for MGSV, it's going over very, very well with critics . Automatic Game of the Year?

Sweet. The music in this entry seems like it's going to be good. Joan Baez's Here's to You Nicola and Bart fit nicely with Ground Zeroes and the era this game takes place in.

Fun fact: this song was also featured in MGS4 but a much "updated" cover version. Not to mention the ideology of Big Boss fits right in with the two the song was written about.

As long as they don't add annoying features that require using the app to unlock things then im ok with it. *Cough* Assassins Creed Unity & Splinter Cell Blacklist *cough*

So wait no one is complaining about this companion App? Yet people bashed on about the Assassin Creed Unity App. I see it now gamers are hypercrits.

Obviously it depends on the functionality of the app, and what role it plays for the game.
