Konami specifies GZ pre-order bonuses, content transferring and DLC

Konami has shared some more details on the DLC and pre-order bonuses for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. As announced earlier, early buyers of the game will receive downloadable content that gives them an advantage if The Phantom Pain. This goes for European copies as well.

From Konami UK:

The pre-order DLC codes will be provided via a printed insert within physical copies of GROUND ZEROES. Digital versions will access the pre-order DLC automatically upon loading THE PHANTOM PAIN. Once the DLC content is unlocked, users will have access to exclusive Mother Base items that will give GROUND ZEROES users a key advantage when they embark on THE PHANTOM PAIN.

Although details on THE PHANTOM PAIN’s scenario are as-yet unrevealed, any characters or POWs rescued within GROUND ZEROES will be available within THE PHANTOM PAIN. Similarly, players will be able to use their save game from GROUND ZEROES to help establish a Mother Base in THE PHANTOM PAIN, while actions made when rescuing hostages, POWs, and specific characters will all have important repercussions later on. More details to come!

Furthermore, those who pre-order the digital version on PlayStation 3 via the PSN Store receive a free (digital) copy of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition. Good news for those who missed out on the game, since Ground Zeroes is a direct sequel. At this point it’s not really clear if this offer is valid in all regions or not.

    It’s not available to preorder via PSN in the US right now. Something tells me that this will be a UK promo only. Look at the rating on the box.

    • Nyxus

      Possible. It’s unclear which regions this applies to.

  • SenorCardgage

    Wait, so the exclusive Mother Base members are now exclusive to pre-order only, or is this an entirely different deal than the content that will only be available through the initial physical printings? The wording has me confused.

    • Nyxus

      Yeah, not sure, but I think this is about the first batch of physical copies, not just pre-orders. The Peace Walker bonus is just for pre-orders though.

        All I got was a stinking trailer. Downloaded a trailer into my ps3.

  • Michael Montanez

    So how does this work for digital versions. I want to get the XBOX ONE digital version but theres no preorder option. Will I get the DLC if I buy the digital version day 1??

    • Nyxus

      I believe all digital versions include bonuses for a limited time.

  • PrinceHeir

    I’m surprised they didn’t put any skins of the older games there.

    So how do you access the exclusive missions De Javu and Jamais Vu missions? The mission is already on disc with its respective versions?

    • Jonny2x4

      You have to collect the XOF badges scattered throughout Camp Omega to unlock the Extra Op.

      • PrinceHeir

        kinda like Dog Tags?

        I wouldn’t be surprised if there are badges that referenced from older and newer games, especially MGS1 and Rising.

  • Solid Snakes Revenge

    Eventhough I already have 2 versions of peacewalker I wish the free one came with the ps4 version as well.

  • Shiner

    Does this mean if i buy the ps3 version, and get tpp on ps4 the dlc for mother base will carry on work?
