Metal Gear Online Goes Live on PC
Company: Konami
Konami Digital Entertainment, B.V., has launched METAL GEAR ONLINE, the dedicated, squad-based multi-player component of its best-selling METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN, via Steam for PC.

METAL GEAR ONLINE is built around a dedicated squad-based competitive multiplayer structure, which has been fully redesigned within the familiar gameplay and aesthetic styling of the acclaimed METAL GEAR SOLID series. The online element introduces Tactical Team Operations and features a ‘class system’ that uniquely defines the strengths and abilities of player characters on the battlefield. Players can select from three distinct classes: Scout, Enforcer and Infiltrator.

METAL GEAR ONLINE also supports 16-player online battles for 8v8 PvP combat (compared to 12 players for PlayStation®3 and Xbox360 users). Players can select different missions, implement special customization options, and take advantage of support weapons unique to the online multiplayer aspect. METAL GEAR ONLINE also features a revised version of the Buddy system seen in METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN, pairing two players as allies for enhanced, multiplayer benefits.

METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN including METAL GEAR ONLINE, retails for £59.99 for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Steam; and £49.99 for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360. SRP for the ‘Collector’s Edition’ is £99.99 for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and the Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft.
