Metal Gear Solid 4 and MGS Online Join Forces
Metal Gear Solid 4, one of the most hotly anticipated games coming out within the next six months, now has an online component out of the box.
Once confirmed to be two separate titles, the latest issue of Official PlayStation Magazine’s cover reveals that Metal Gear Solid 4 and Metal Gear Solid Online have been merged into one!
Beyond the exciting news of the MGS4/MGO merger, there are some other details revealed about MGO too, including word that itâ€™ll support up to 16 players in modes like Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, King of the Hill and Team Sneak on five â€œStarter Packâ€ maps. Character customization sounds like a point of emphasis for the title too, with the article stating that players will be able to customize their characters with up to three special skills (they sound very similar to the perks in Call of Duty 4), and that skills and weapons will level up over the course of play.
So we get MGS4 online up to 16 players, standard modes, customizable characters, and perks?
MGS 4 has just cemented a guaranteed part of my PS3 arsenal, and surely I’m not alone in this!
