Konami will officially launch Metal Gear Online open beta today (Jan. 12) for Windows PC around 10pm PT. Robert Allen Peeler announced the beta launch for Metal Gear Online during a Twitch stream yesterday. 

Peeler says: "While that's [10pm PT] our target time, there's a chance it'll slip by an hour or two as we implement this awaited update, but rest assured we will be here for support and launch as planned." 

The update includes a new map, knife mechanics, new cosmetics, and more.  The new map does not have a name, so Peeler says the  name will be decided by players and you can send your name ideas via Metal Gear Online Twitter @MetalGearOnline. Watch the Twitch stream for more information.

Players can access this beta through Metal Gear Solid 5. MGO adds three competitive modes called Bounty Hunter, Comms Control, and Cloak and Dagger.

In Bounty Hunter, you earn Bounty Points for defeating other players, especially with Fulton, and these points can be turned in to revive tickets. The first to reduce the enemy's team tickets to zero wins. 

Comms Control entrusts one team of players to capture Comm Links to download intel under a time limit. If the other team prevents them from completing the download, then they are victorious. Comm Links are captured by staying within the range of the Comm Links until they take ownership.

Cloak and Dagger arms players with non-lethal weapons only and the attackers must recover a Data Disk and upload it to an Evac Point within the allotted time limit. Defenders naturally must stop the attackers. Each player only has one life so once you are eliminated, you cannot return until the next round. 

Metal Gear 5 is available for purchase on Steam for $59.99.

Metal Gear Online 3 demo vid shows classes and gameplay Sun, 20 Sep 2015 15:30:01 -0400 Tobbpitt

The Metal Gear Online games have always been good fun, and Metal Gear Online 3 is sure to follow in its predecessors footsteps in being pretty awesome. 

Konami released a new Metal Gear Online 3 video demo, showing off the game's classes, character creation, and gameplay. Check it out in the video above.

MGO3 will have three classes, all three of which are briefly touched on in the video.

  • Infiltrator - A through and through stealth class that can interrogate enemies to see the location of other targets. 
  • Scout - Best at seeing enemies from a distance and can tag them for allies to get vision. The essential sniper character.
  • Enforcer - The run-and-gun glass in MGO. Specializes in heavy weapons use.

These three together create a balance that players of previous Metal Gear Online games are familiar with, and each has its own place on the field.

MGO3 will also allow players to get in on the online action using Revolver Ocelot or Snake, should they want to. These are the only two series characters currently announced, and hopefully more are available once the game goes live.

Anyone who owns Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain on consoles will be able to jump into Metal Gear Online 3 on October 6th, just three weeks away. PC players are going to have to wait, though, as Konami has delayed the PC launch for MGO3 until January 2016.
