Metal Gear Online’s Cloaked In Silence DLC This Month

Expert sniper Quiet is joining Metal Gear Online [official site] as a playable special character in the upcoming 'Cloaked in Silence' DLC, and I'm sorely disappointed in everyone who won't get into character by humming over voice comms whenever they see an enemy. The add-on will also chuck in three new maps and give unlimited access to a new mode which will only allow non-DLCers…

Metal Gear Online Bursts Out Its Beta Box

Sure, you've defeated the entire Soviet army in Metal Gear Solid V [official site] by throwing hunks of metal at soldiers' faces then telling your dog to bite them, but that will only work on actual humans five times - tops - before someone calls the rozzers.

So how come a new update has just added a load of new Grade 7 and 8 tech? Forward Operating Base invasions, innit. (Also, dang, they're pretty cool.) It's interesting to see development shift focus now…

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain [official site] does have a little multiplayer action through its Forward Operating Base invasions, but it's getting a big fancy affair with teamplay and different…

Metal Gear Online Explained, PC Phantom Pain Delayed

Good news first, RPS: there's a commentated version of the trailer for the┬áMetal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain [official site] online component, Metal Gear Online. It shows off a (highly scripted) 8v8 round of play in a one-sided CTF style game mode of "get the item and get out." The new commentary explains some of the gadgets and devices shown last year. Bad but…

Decoy Dog: Metal Gear Solid V Multiplayer Announced

I could not tell you exactly how this toy dog plushie works, how exactly people are distracted by it and end up gazing adoringly into its plastic eyes, but I am keen to find out. Konami have announced that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will have a multiplayer side, bringing back Metal Gear Online. That there dog is one of the class-based sneak-o-shoot's…
