Metal Gear Online to get "Gene Expansion" Pack

Metal Gear Online has dealt with a fair share of criticism from the gaming community. Five maps to play on, limited modes of play, $7 character slots – not exactly the way to keep your gamers happy. That explains the update that dropped not too long ago that contained “Team Sneaking” and “Headshots Only” as well as “LOL” and “Rage” camos, but the “Gene Expansion” pack is a whole different ballgame!

Filled to the brim with content, the pack includes tons of hotness. Have a look:

Playable Characters

  • Meryl Silverburgh
  • Johnny (AKIBA)

New Maps

  • Coppertown Conflict / City of Sorrow
  • Tomb of Tubes / Underground Waterway
  • Virtuous Vista / South America Power Station

New Game Modes

  • Survival

To add to the awesomeness, Survival mode earns you Reward Points. You can then spend those Reward Points to gear out your character. Speaking of characters, the update also gives you a single character expansion slot while bumping up your maximum player slots to eight. Why do you get the expansion slot? Well, to try out the new female characters, of course!

I can’t help but to wonder if the female character usage is available to everyone, or just the people who buy the pack… Also, very shortly be prepared to have your server choices limited as some servers will likely switch exclusively to the new maps.

I’m considering the maps myself, and the biggest consideration to that is how much this pack will cost. Rumors have the price ranging from 1500 – 1800 yen, which comes up to $14 – $17 dollars, respectively. Will gamers fork over the likely $15 to get all the updates? Only time will tell, but MGO definitely rocks.

See ya online, either way.
