Metal Gear Online (MGO), the multiplayer experience that combines the rich Metal Gear Solid universe with online combat, returns exclusively for the PLAYSTATION®3!
Your first task after enlisting is to create your MGO alter ego. Design your own unique character from dozens of possible combinations, and keep an eye out for additional gear updates!
Metal Gear Characters...?
Intel indicates the presence of Old Snake and Metal Gear Mk.II somewhere on the battlefield... What other Metal Gear characters might be lurking in the shadows?
In the new MGO, combat gets an upgrade from a maximum of 8 to now 16 players -- trusted allies in team games, or heated rivals in solo play! The more players on the ground, the more intense the action.
Expect a multitude of communication features, an essential component of any online game. From the all-encompassing SOP system to a deep support network bringing players closer together off the battlefield, MGO has you covered!
The SOP System allows you to visually share information among your squad by linking your internal nanomachines. Information like your teammates' positions, status, and even who they're engaging with will all be provided to you in real-time. It also works through walls, letting you identify individuals by their digital silhouette.
Gain the upper hand by scanning your enemy team's link and share their information with your comrades.
In this MGO, intercommunication and adaptive teamwork decide the outcome!
Friend Registration, Mail, SNS
On the battlefield, you need somebody watching your back. No more flying solo. Now thanks to MGO's easy-to-use Friend Registration system, it's easy to send friend invites to people you've fought alongside with. And keep in touch with your new comrades outside of the game using our mail and SNS communication systems.
