Metal Gear Online Gets TGS 2015 Gameplay Video, New Info
Metal Gear Online has been a bit under wraps so far in terms of gameplay details. This all changed today, when Konami revealed a lot of new information and shared a long gameplay video that we've embedded below.
Three game modes have been revealed: Bounty Hunter, Cloak and Dagger, Comm Control.
In Bounty Hunter, teams win if the number of enemy team tickets is reduced to zero. Killing or Fultoning an enemy reduces the enemy team tickets by one. Fultoning an enemy increases your team's ticket total by the value of the Fultoned enemy's bounty.
In Cloak and Dagger, attackers win by recovering the Data Disc and uploading it at the Evac Point within the time limit. Defenders win by preventing the upload. Attackers are armed with only non-lethal weapons while defenders only have lethal weapons. This is an elimination mission. Once eliminated, you cannot return to the battlefield until the next round.
Finally, in Comm Control attackers must capture Comm Links to download confidential intel. If the attackers complete the download within the time limit, they are victorious. If the defenders are able to prevent this within the time limit, they are victorious. Comm Links can be captured by staying within the effective range of the Comm Links until they change ownership.
Konami also unveiled three classes: Scout, Enforced and Infiltrator.
With advanced scouting capabilities, the "Recon Class" specialties are long-range combat and support functions. Movement speed and strength are average making this a great choice for beginners.
With great strength, the "Heavy Class" specializes in powerful weapons. However, movement speed is slow making this class less effective in close quarters. This class is for intermediate players.
Fast moving, the "Infiltration Class" specialty is close combat such as CQC. Due to the strength being low, you should avoid a head-on battle. This is a class for experienced players.
Konami also provided some Metal Gear Online tips.
Metal Gear Online comes for free if you own Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. The service will go live on October for consoles and on January 2016 for PC.
