New Beta footage from the upcoming game, Metal Gear Online
omg, im like drooling right now, i hope the clan system is gonna be good to
There is much better footage out there on Youtube.com Check it out. The quality on this video is pretty bad, but it's exciting to see whatever I can get my eyes on pertaining to MGS4.
It looks like the the attraction is going to be in the features that are offered. The animations and graphics look average. That's going to be a great deal MGS4 with MGO together in one package. I can't wait to pick it up. Where will I find the time?!
Don't this game come with Metal Gear Solid 4? If it does, then sweet. @everyone else thanks @Demon_Zoul NO, I was going to get it either way.
im pretty sure they come together
and if it wasn't will you miss out by not buying it?
looks great...from what you can see, wish that quality was better, but i have a lot of faith for that online game!
Would have been nice if it was a bit clearer .It looks like it's coming along nicely though
looks very very very very average mgs4 and mgonline look so plain and boring guys i dont think ill be getting this game this year
This guy could have easily embedded my video, so people don't have to leave N4G to view video.
Beta guys ... its a beta it will get better
you get the starter online game (i think you can upgrade it later)
OMG Im so pump for this part of MGS4... I got great memories from original MGO on PS2 =D
Does anyone see a resemblance to SOCOM II in this beta footage?
The TPS camera moves very similary - the grenade mechanics look great too.
This is gonna be one hell of a game - I can't wait till summer '08! *intentional rhyme :D*
I bought MGS3 a few weeks after the servers were down and I didn't know... At least I had the greatest single player ever! IMO!
Metal Gear is going to make me fail my classes, BTW, N4G looks pretty cool after they upgraded it.
But will this online gameplay be any sort of threat to COD4?
with COD 4 imo. I'm still gunna end up buying it though.
Really poor quality which is a shame! But still anything MGS and NEW is great for me! Like the site update to : )
ah, didnt help with the double post though : (
thank god for this forum, finally I can discuss things in peace!
mgs4 or mgsonline better?
MGS4 of course. it the main game.
You better be a non MGS series fan because if you jump to the MGO2 straight with out playing MGS4 you just not a fan at all... MGO is great so dont get me wrong but MGS4 is the Big Cake and MGO is just the after fun of it =D
right i dont get what they are trying to do with this part. is it an all out shooter or are there some taticle elements like in the single player.
to me he is just runing around shooting which doesnt really do anything different than a normal FPS or 3rd person online shooter does, unless im missing something.
does anybody know.
Thanks in advance
Watch some of the former videos on the game (possible check gametrailers.com). It may show the squad based elements of the game.
well there hasn't been much info release on the online as yet. But I hope they reveal something soon.
Definitely looks like a great side-piece to a monumental videogame. And to The Executive: Amen brotha! I feel like there are adults on here afterall.
Yeah, thats looking pretty good so far. So many guns to pick from, looks like it would take a while to get to learn everything with is great....means there will be so much to do.
Is this being realease day & date as MGS4?
it will be packaged as the starter pack, along with MGS4
Same disc! Or at least a "starter pack" for MGO and downloads to follow (FREE downloads)
Are the downloads really going to be free? That'd be freakin awesome.
No...the extra content (besides starter Kit) will all be downloadable off PSN for a Fee...
Crazy amount of guns/features, hope they're all avaliable in the single player. Shame about the poor quality though : (
MGs4 is primarily a single play stealth game, atleast this adds fun.
But what do u mean by low quality, do u mean the graphics or the video itself?
The video was terrible quality, not the graphics.
I`m not sure if that camera view works well in multiplayer, like fps, but nevertheless, innovations are always welcome. I hope you get both MGS4 and MGO for the same price.
The way it stands with shooters line up for 08, COD4 multiplayer should only be knocked off when KZ2 arrives if it lives up to it`s hype. MGS4 should however be one of the most anticipated games of 08 and a must play.
Didn't kojima say that you can play the entire single player game in fps mode if you wanted to? I don't see why you couldnt' change the view in mgo as well. We'll see.
Thats true i completely forgot you can use first person camera. If it works in campaign mode i can`t see why wouldn`t work in multiplayer.
that is one of the reasons why MGO is going to rawk, it will be very tactical
like deciding whether to use FPS or TPS modes- one gives you more accuracy but the other gives you access to CQC techniques and stuff like rolls and dives
for MGS4. I also cant wait to own all you guys at the online portion of the game. Gonna be pretty sweet.
I just saw the vid and everything looks fine.
Looks like a good addition and definetly okay not at cod4 level but definetly nice.
The aiming may be tricky , I wanna see if u have other options because that over the shoulder view is really annoying in multiplayer.
B/C this looked horrible if this was for the PS3. Horrible.
Game play looked really really weak too. Seriously, is this ps3 or am I wrong and it is psp, b/c I'm sure psp has already has MGS online play that's better than this.
shouldnt have said that.......
Cant wait for this game only on ps3 wooo
I love the single player mode
I think Metal Gear solid 4 looks amazing. I just don't understand why their is such a large fan base for MGS
I was a casual mgs fan until the latest one. MGS3 is one of the best games of all time. I put it in my top 3 ever.
because its a huge hit that has been on numerous consoles.
It would be asking like...why is Halo so popular...or with nintendo ...Mario and Zelda
What would be nice if when you level up you can unlock new weapons and equipment such as high frequency sword or ninja suit. I remember Kojima mentioning that you won't be able to play as Raiden in MGS4 but maybe MGO...
Looks pretty good, and it could be fun. MGO needs to take radar system used in cod4 though, or do a variation on it. Having players pop up on radar only when they fire or shot or when the uav is temporarily on adds so much to the game. For a stealth game like mgs it should be a must.
what was with the guy beign in a box after he got hit by a tranquilizer or something???
Looks fun..I will be playing it none stop when it releases here in NA in March hopefully..
can't wait to get this... i'm not much of an online gamer but i will with this game
And just think,MGO will come packaged with MGS4,I can't wait,system seller!;)
Subsistence was a lot of fun, me and my friend used to play that all night. With this being a naturally step forward from that I'm pumped to get this game. No shotgun lol
....can't wait to try a metal gear game online, should be fun.
I think it still needs quite a lot of balancing they could experiment with game pace.
Even though Game Trailers did a ****ty job converting the video into a file format (and trying to hide online names) the game looks awesome. And for the nay sayers... shut up. this is still in beta format and the video file is crud. Thank you GT for giving us a bad quality format!
Gametrailers had nothing to do with that video, its a User Submitted video.
OMFG LOOKS GREAT!!... not. What a crappy image and i have to agree with mesh1 about the average gameplay, but i know myself and im going to buy this in day one :)
