Metal Gear Online gets patched with new mode, host option. July 7, 2008Posted by Admin in Software.
Metal Gear Online has been home to some pretty intense sneaking matches since its release alongside Metal Gear Solid 4 last month, but the problem with the game’s sneaking mode is that only one player gets to be Snake. That’s not nearly enough stealth action for all. Thankfully, Konami has heeded the call for more online stealth action with a brand new mode now available for free.
The new mode, entitled “Team Sneaking,” gives one team the task of using stealth to infiltrate the enemy team’s base and destroy a target within enemy territory. Like Snake in “Sneaking,” the stealth team is invisible until spotted and then stays visible until the caution timer runs out—much like the game’s single player mode. For those not interested in the stealth game, though, the update also includes a new host option called “Headshots Only” which changes the game’s rank point awards to penalize kills that aren’t headshots rather than reward them.
Though small, this update is a welcome little booster pack for the fun online title. What we could really go for, though, are some new maps—the limited number of included maps is beginning to wear a little thin for those of us who’ve been playing the game online since launch.
