Metal Gear Solid 5 Multiplayer Details Revealed

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain began its hype train sometime ago with the release of MGS5: Ground Zeroes, a prequel that chronicles the events leading up to the Phantom Pain. But when MGS5 does launch next year, fans will have more than the continuing adventures of Solid Snake to look forward to, as Konami is also resurrecting Metal Gear Sold Online after the success of the multiplayer modes predecessor which came packaged as part of MGS4 several years ago.

Perhaps the most surprising revelation from the announcement — Metal Gear Solid Online will be related to the story of the single-player campaign and serve as a sort of companion storyline that players will be able to play through to unearth more secrets of the series’ often obtuse and mysterious background lore. Also of note is that popular characters from the Metal Gear Solid universe, such as Revolver Ocelot, will make appearance in multiplayer mode to further solidify the mode’s link to the main game.

MGS‘ online mode will also feature tactical, team-based gameplay in which each player takes on a different class role with unique stats and abilities, and works together to overcome foes and accomplish mission objectives. You can see more of this in a trailer below released just a few day ago by Konami which places the upcoming multiplayer mode front and center.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.
