Metal Gear Solid Online locked and loaded for October 6

News Trailers Xbox One

The full multiplayer offering for Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain is locked and loaded for release on October 6. Metal Gear Online features a variety of classes, mission types, abilities and equipment, and will be available for free for all MGSV The Phantom Pain owners.

If you’ve been enjoying the Phantom Pain, then MGO will be right up your street – pitched somewhere between Splinter Cell and Rainbow Six’s Terrorist modes – the main difference being that you fight against an opposing team of players rather than AI.

The buddy link is a particularly interesting dynamic – you can share combat information with another member of your team – helpful if you need backup from a sniper as you stake out an enemy position.

The trailer below runs through MGO’s Bounty Hunter mode and takes a quick look at each of the classes.

I've been gaming for longer than I care to remember and spent four years writing for another XCN website leading a 10 strong team. Now I'm in charge of TiX alongside Dave Moran – I hope you enjoy what we do!
