I. Release Information
The 2.0 Patch for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots was released on Sunday, August 5th, 2012 (5.8.2012) in Europe, Japan, and Australia. The 2.0 Patch was released in North America early August 6th, 2012. The patch is aprox. 498 MB, containing trophy support, cumulative install support, and removing Metal Gear Online data.

II. Trophy Support
This recent patch will add support for the long-awaited trophies for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. These trophies will have to be obtained on a brand new save file, and cannot be earned on any prior save files. Save files downloaded from the internet will not work, as trophies can only be earned as an event triggers in game (As in, you cannot download a save where someone has earned everything and expect the trophies to unlock). Listed below , in the second post, is a complete list of trophies, including hidden trophies. WARNING, SPOILERS MAY BE AMONG TROPHY DESCRIPTIONS


III. Install Data
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots has allowed had a brief install session in between chapters. This would include a background cutscene of Old Snake smoking a cigarette. Now, you have the option from the main menu to enable a Cumulative Install. This install will allow the user to install all chapter data at one time, instead of in between chapters. However, you will still have the ability to install in between chapters. The Cumulative Install will take up a little over 9 GB.

IV. Frequently Asked Questions
Will I be able to use my old save to earn trophies? Either with New Game+ or loading up my old save that has a Big Boss Emblem?
No, all prior saves before Patch 2.0 are not able to receive trophies. In order to receive trophies, you will need to select New Game and create a completely separate file.

Am I required to do a big install? My HDD isn't very big.
No, you are not. You have the option to do installs in between chapters as well.

Will I still be able to attempt to log-in to Metal Gear Online?
No. Metal Gear Online is no longer listed in the main menu. As far as you'll be able to tell, it never existed.

Can I enter in passwords to obtain weapons and items and still earn trophies?
Yes, and it is almost necessary to obtain all trophies. The Scanning Plug needs to be unlocked with a password, as we can no longer play Metal Gear Online to unlock it.

How long does the patch take? How about the install?
It all depends on your connection and the transfers going on when you download the patch. The patch took 10 minutes for me to download, and the full install took the same amount of time.

1)Play Oishii Two-han Seikatsu and made one of the BB Corps dance.

When a beast is in her beauty form, don't attack her and run around. Soon you will enter a white room. Play the song listed above to make them dance.

2)Right after you get the drum can in Act 1, The militia will spawn forever at the left side of the starting point. Kill them 50 times to vomit.

So do you just play that tune with the ipod? Is that a song we get by default or do we have to do something to unlock it?

No, all prior saves before Patch 2.0 are not able to receive trophies. In order to receive trophies, you will need to select New Game and create a completely separate file.


So why do i see some people playing already in Extreme mode difficulty going for the BBE?

Because TBE is already unlocked. You need to start a New Game but if you already have a save from before the patch, you can play Extreme right off the bat.
