The recently revealed Metal Gear Online
will be included with all copies of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
, Konami has confirmed.
Announced at the inaugural Games Awards
, Metal Gear Online
sees players teaming up to take on various co-op missions. The announcement video, above, details the player shifting between different appearances before settling on the visage of Big Boss, MGS V
This marks a trend of major publishers making efforts to distinguish their multiplayer quotient from their single player, with Grand Theft Auto V
doing the same with GTA Online
both in 2013 and the current-gen rerelease of November.
Metal Gear Solid V
has no confirmed release date as yet, although fan-theories abound
as to whether Kojima is dropping clues with his wardrobe choices.
