Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has announced it is to launch a dedicated online league for its new Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops title for the PlayStation®Portable.
Following the incredible success of its Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence League, Konami is inviting players of Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops to compete against rival fans. Created by Games-Services, the official League will be hosted at www.MPOLEAGUE.com in five languages. English, French, German, Spanish and Italian players will be able to create their own tournaments, or take part in official tournaments to find Europe's best players. Three official competitions are currently planned, taking place between June and October, with Konami looking to emulate the fantastic response to the official Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence competitions.
The new site will also act as a focal point for fans of Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops. Making full use of the new game's recruitment and online aspects, www.MPOLEAGUE.com will allow players to form their own clans, recruit players, and discuss tactics and tips within the community-based forums on the site. It will also be possible to set up online competitions using the Wi-Fi capabilities of the PSP®, with up to six players battling it out at once in the Death Match, Team Death Match, and Capture Missions.
