Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes to Feature Full Co-op?

Looking at what we know from the recent Ground Zeroes news, and taking an assumption from other recent Metal Gear games, TGR are wondering if some co-op is on the cards...

This would be AWESOME. Hope it happens.

If so only as an added "OPTION" a seperate mode.

Really looking forward to this upcoming gem...

I hope not unless I can play it alone and not have to babysit the AI. If this ends up being a co-op game then I'll just wait until MGS5.

It would probably be drop in drop out co op like Peace Walker, which would be awesome.

I guess that's what the guys on the site were thinking as that's what inspired the suggestion by the looks of it.

That is not how you play Metal Gear, Co-op does not fit with the experience. This better be a seperate mode.

Stole the words right out of my mouth (literally lol). Mgs is a story driven sp game. Peace Walker was trying to do the whole MH thing for the handheld and while it worked its not right for the main series on consoles. I played it alone because thats how i like my MGS (challenging and taking my sweet ass time). Now for a seperate mode sure, not for the campaign.

They could maybe do something creative like side missions similar to Demons Souls where if you head to a certain area you would run into other people are could tackle the mission together but even that is better suited for a broken down mission based handheld title. Its hard to incorperate different characters (or 4 Big Bosses) in the storyline.

Please NO. Coop games are annoying because you either get half the experience if you want to play alone or you get an AI which is stupid and can't do anything. It's a stealth game so I expect to play alone so I can concentrate on sneaking and not worry about someone else.

Big reason why I didn't like the coop in Splinter Cell conviction, because even if I played witha friend they would always run off and get caught when I was trying to sneak through.

Coop was fine in Peace Walker. It has been shown that MGS is capible of it. I can see peoples concerns though. Resident Evil 5 is the best example I can think of. It is a good coop game no doubt, but if you want to play the story solo then your experience is worsened significantly. If you are going to add coop it needs to be either a seperate mode or doesn't have any negative results on the Single player.

The best way to acheive this is design the Story around single player and the attach the coop features as opposed to building the whole game around coop and then leaving the solo player feeling like he is missing out on something. (if that makes sense)

Evenso, Splintercell: Conviction has two different features. There is a full single player story mode, and then it has a co-op mode. Whereas MGS:GZ is talking about full co-op through the entire story mode.

Summons752090d ago

I know but I was just saying being Stealthy in Conviction in coop was near impossible because someone else would ruin it for you. It would be no different here, separate mode or not.

I think this would definitely work best as an option, as mentioned in a previous comment. But if done right co-op can be brilliant, just look at Ghost Recon. This isn't a confirmed feature though don't forget, just a stab in the dark :)
