Kojima Productions took to Twitter today to announce the arrival date of the eagerly anticipated Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots trophy patch.
The patch, which will hit on August 6th, not only brings trophies into the fold, but also adds a much needed install option to reduce load times.
[Update] While we didn't hear back directly from Konami, the PlayStation Blog posted the full trophy list for Metal Gear Solid 4, and added that the patch will arrive in the "beginning of August", which is likely that August 6th patch date listed above. But since that date is likely the Japanese patch date, and given the difference in timezones, don't expect the patch to go live until the 7th in North America.
The trophy list is below, but I still think the MGS4 trophy list I made is better.
- Bronze You enjoy all the killing, that’s why. - Killed many enemies in one area, and vomited.

[Original] It is worth noting, however, that this patch may only be released in Japan on that date. We remain optimistic that the patch should arrive soon after in both North America and European regions, but no clear date has been set.
We've reached out to Konami for comment and clarity on a release for other regions, and will update if and when we hear back. Until then...
