This is how save transfers work between MGS5: The Phantom Pain and Ground Zeroes
Konami has detailed how the save transfer feature will work between MGS5: Ground Zeroes and the upcoming The Phantom Pain.
The Japanese side of Metal Gear Solid publisher Konami has published a handy guide showing how transferring save files will work between Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain.
As you can see, save transfers can only work within the same family of consoles, and only from old-gen to new-gen. There doesn't appear to be an option for transfers across different console families like with GTA Online for instance.
The Ground Zeroes save from the PC version can only carry over to the PC version of The Phantom Pain.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is coming tomorrow, and it’s got many people rather excited. Thanks to stellar, week-early reviews, even those who aren’t caught up in Kojima’s convoluted narrative are keen to see what the fuss is all about. There’s no better way to see that, in my opinion, than by playing through Ground Zeroes; the game that serves as a prologue to the events that unfold in Phantom Pain.
That prologue was derided by many as a paid demo, which took just two hours to finish, but there was more to it than you’d imagine. Here’s the thing though – while it was certainly possible to run through and see the credits in minutes, there were many missions to do, many voice recordings to collect and many people to save.
That game’s just been updated, allowing you to import your Ground Zeroes save file in to Phantom Pain. Doing so will add a few costumes to the game, but also bring extra people to your game as volunteers to your Mother Base, each with their own stats (via Gearnuke ). The more people you have, the better your overall equipment and experience will be.
Here’s a list of the stupidly named people you’ll get in The Phantom Pain through importing a Ground Zeroes save. The missions you’ll need to complete are ones within The Phantom Pain, and it seems you may need a 100% Ground Zeroes Save to get everybody.

Wondering how to transfer your save data?
How to Transfer Save Data?
- Download the latest update for Ground Zeroes on your choice of platform.
- Go to the main menu screen. Select “Upload Save Data” from the menu.
- Download the latest update of The Phantom Pain on your platform.
- Go to main menu screen of The Phantom Pain. Select “Download Save Data” from the menu.
This apparently will allow you to transfer across platforms within the same platform family – so you’ll be able to move your PS3 Ground Zeroes save to your brand new PlayStation 4 that you bought specifically to play The Phantom Pain on.

Replayed Ground Zeroes and really tried to do it as stealthily as possible… Only got a C, 1 alert till I entered the base then things just went pear shaped and I killed almost all of the guards in there with my guns… Ended with 5 alerts… I haven’t done any missions in there though, just the main story part. And I remember why I got so excited after playing it the first time.
Still need to play Ground Zeros. And MGSV is out tomorrow O_o

“Complete Mission 12” – anybody know what missions they’re referring to?
August 31, 2015 at 21:45
I think it’s referring to missions done in Hard mode. I only count 6 missions(excluding déjà vu and body snatchers). So having mission 10 could be A previous mission but on hard.

It’s a good way to reward people for playing GZ without making the early game of Phantom Pain way too easy with all the bonuses.
April 8, 2016 at 02:48
Glad I waiting ’til I got 100% (and even ’til I unlocked all of the bonuses) in GZ to start TPP. 😀

Konami has detailed the rules in which save data on MGS5 Ground Zeroes can transfer over to its sequel Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain .
The publisher notes that data from Ground Zeroes, the prologue that shipped in March last year, can be transferred over to The Phantom Pain, but only within the same console family.
Specifically, those with a PlayStation 3 copy of Ground Zeroes can either continue their story on the same console, or on the PlayStation 4 . Those with an Xbox 360 copy have the same options with either the last-gen or current Xbox system.
For customers who have the PlayStation 4, Xbox One , or Steam editions of Ground Zeroes, their only option for transferring data to The Phantom Pain is by buying the game on the same platform.
The details were published on Konami's Japan website and captured on Twitter:
Here is a picture of how save file transfer will work from Ground Zeroes -> The Phantom Pain. pic.twitter.com/09HXeozn5S — Punished Dawg (@GuerrillaDawg) March 10, 2015
So far, only two games have allowed data transfer between families of console: Diablo 3 and Grand Theft Auto 5 .
The Metal Gear Solid V release date is set for September 1 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The PC launch will occur two weeks later .

More details on transferring data between MGSV: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain
You’re a legend in the eyes of those that live on the battlefield
Konami has released a bit more info on what will be involved in transferring data from Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain . Unfortunately, you can’t use data from any version of Ground Zeroes for any version of The Phantom Pain . However, Konami made a handy chart to help us out.
Additionally, if you bought a physical copy, you’ll have to have a disc handy to complete the transfer process. Here’s what unlocks with the data transfer:
- Big Boss’s sneaking suit from Ground Zeroes
- Bonus recruits for Mother Base, including any POWs you rescued during the course of the game
- A possible revisit to Camp Omega for a new mission in The Phantom Pain
I absolutely can’t wait to get Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain . I’ve already planned to take the week off, buy room-darkening curtains, and curse at my loved ones long enough so that they’ll leave me alone for a week.
Big Boss returns September 1.

What will Big Boss bring back from Mother Base's charred remains in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and over to The Phantom Pain ? It'll be more than just ashes.
Metal Gear Informer reports that Konami has released info on how you'll be able to transfer your save data going from Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes to The Phantom Pain . Ground Zeroes will obviously carry its save data over to the last-gen and current-gen versions of The Phantom Pain (see the provided Konami picture below for more details), we didn't see its bonuses coming. In particular, you'll be able to equip the sneaking suit Snake had in Ground Zeroes. The Phantom Pain's new base will be staffed by the POWs you saved during Ground Zeroes . You'll also be able to revisit Camp Omega as well.
Here's what Kojima said about revisiting Camp Omega:
People who own GZ will be able to play a different mission(s) at Camp Omega in TPP. That’s the current plan. There’s something of a big feature involved. It’s never been done in the games industry before. So I can’t go into detail about it, but I think when you experience it for yourselves you’ll be surprised. It’s something that’s only possible through video games.
Hideo Kojima has announced that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain would be releasing on Sept. 1 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360. Steam will be getting The Phantom Pain on Sept. 15. There's also a Collector's Edition of MGSV that is expected to cost $99, which will include a behind the scenes Blu-ray, a cloth map, a steelbook case and a half-size replica of Snake's artificial arm. For those wondering about the digital content, it will include a variety of camouflage outfits and cardboard box disguises for Snake. The digital content will also include exclusive equipment and gear to use in T he Phantom Pain and in Metal Gear Online.
The 5x5 episode that started it all features Big Boss:
