Metal Gear Solid V Updated On PC, Metal Gear Online Officially Launched


Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, the latest entry of the series developed by Hideo Kojima and his team, has received a new update a few hours ago on PC. The new update doesn't add the infamous Chapter 3 to the game, but adds a feature that PC players have been waiting for since the game's launch.

The new Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain 1GB update adds the online portion of the game, Metal Gear Online. Even those who haven't participated in the beta from last week have received the update, making Metal Gear Online's launch on PC finally official.

In order to get more players to enjoy Metal Gear Online, Konami is offering an interesting incentive. All those who play at least one match between today and January 26th will be able to receive a 3000 Gear Points bonus to help them customize their characters' gear style.

Metal Gear Online's launch on PC is only the beginning, obviously. Metal Gear Online Community Manager Robert Peeler has also confirmed that MGO will receive new features through updates as well as additional content just like the console version.

Given the right platform, the right game, any player can be shaped into an online player.

The Beta has officially concluded and the game is now available for launch.
We took in a lot of feedback and made a few key adjustments. After some initial hiccups we’re going forward guns at the ready. However that doesn’t mean we’ve stopped development, quite the contrary. Just like the previously released console versions of MGO, we’ll be integrating new updates to the game to improve the experience and add content.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is now available in all regions on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. Metal Gear Online is also finally available on all formats.
