Konami: Europe Is Getting MGO Beta
Good news, Euro gamers: it appears you'll be getting the Metal Gear Online beta after all.
Earlier this week, we learned that retailers in Europe didn't appear to know anything about a beta test, with positions secured by those who pre-purchased Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. Well, that's probably because Konami isn't awarding beta spots in this way. Konami has just told Eurogamer that they will be announcing their plans for a Euro MGO beta "shortly," and it may not have anything to do with pre-ordering MGS4. At the same time, you should remember that MGS4 is slated for a simultaneous worldwide release on June 12, and that hasn't changed at all.
We understand that European gamers get left out in the cold far too often with things like this, but you needn't worry about this one. You will have your chance to be in the beta test for Metal Gear Online...we just don't have the specifics yet. We'll be sure to let you know when they arrive.
