This might be good. I had fun with their first attempt with MGO. It was a bit rough around the edges, but at least they tried something new. Bring it on.
No Konami IDs please. If not than hallelujah because MGO was actually fun.
MGO on MGS3 and MGS4 was a ton of goofy fun. What blows my mind is two words Kojima says: "vast multiplayer". Are we going to have something similar to GTA4's open-world multiplayer? Oh. My. Goodness.
Any open world portion would likely be co-op. By MGO, I think of the traditional smaller map-based team-on-team battles. I would love to see open-world for Team Sneaking (or any sneaking modes in general) and map-based close-quarter maps for traditional modes like TDM. Open world for TDM would be odd. But open world for team sneaking would be epic. Hopefully they have both (like think of Battlefield: It has large maps, which makes it easier to infiltrate the enemy camp--yet has smaller, confined area's for TDM to ramp up the action).
Open world MGO. Imagine.
I could get on board with that.
WOO HOOO i loved mgo so much fun that game was apart from the glitchers lol. Oh please dont let them change the gaming mechanics into call of duty ;-;
I hope the traditional modes are not open world (like TDM). But I can see Team Sneaking mode working in open world since it would be similar to the campaign.
Open world, anyone? Edit: Ninja'd by LightofDarkness :P
You better not make us register it separately in order to access multiplayer that Konami ID god....
hopefully less kids in MGO this time. I don't want to see the CoD generation in MGO.
YES. YES. YES.
YEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH HH!!!!!!!!!!! Thats honestly the best news Ive heard all year..its been a rather craptacular year for me, thanks for cheering me up N4G!
great news. bout time man i was wondering when he would make the announcement.
Yeah we need Release Date
Glad to hear that MGO is back, but this time open world.....good job Kojima.
Please - no Konami IDs, and PLEASE fix the damage model so its not "headshots r us."
The emphasis on headshots is what set it apart from other games like Uncharted online, or COD. Most of the MGO community liked it that way, and kojima would be alienating them entirely if that changed. Besides, he made it balanced by adding a high amount of realistic recoil, so the whole emphasis on headshots was balanced and fair. And unique. If he gets rid of it, then it's just gonna feel like every other game. If u don't like headshot emphasis, feel free to play something else. Don't mess with the MGO tried and true gameplay mechanics.
oh fuck YES!
I hope they have mission based modes similar to Peace Walker.
Mgo on MGS4 was the only online shooter this gen that I was dedicated about. Really enjoyed that! I'm not very much into competitive multiplayer, but I'll play the hell out of this!
Imagine Snake vs Guards missions within the vast theatres broadcasted in the demonstration at E3. Team work would be even more vital for success.
Me getting this game confirmed. I'll definitely have a PS4 by the time this comes out.
My penis weirdly just grew.
