Rumor: MGO To Get New Expansion Pack, Added Rules
Even if you've already completed Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, you don't have to abandon your remaining urge for MGS action. Metal Gear Online gives you the option to experience Kojima's universe in a whole new way, and the latest rumor is that a new expansion pack will become available on July 17 in Japan.
According to translated Japanese gaming forums (citing information from the newest edition of Famitsu), the pack will retail for 1200 yen, with another option of a 1500-yen pack that gives you a new character slot. Both packs will feature Johnny and Meryl, the ability to make female characters, a new Survival Mode, and three fresh stages: Shadow Moses, Mei Ling's Ship, and the Heliport from the original Metal Gear Solid on the PS1. Furthermore, as of Friday, we can expect a couple new rules for MGO in general: Team Scanning (Teams will be broken up into Sneaking and Defending; the Sneaking team will be able to use the Stealth skill), and Head-Shot Only Kills, which of course will be an optional rule.
We have yet to see an official confirmation on either of these announcements, and we do hope that if they are true, they'll come to other territories besides Japan. Once we hear anything, we'll be sure to let you know.
