Metal Gear Online Race Mission & Patriot Feature
These new updates are available to everyone, not just those who purchased SCENE. There will be a new game mode called Race Mission, which goes live on May 12th. Details are below:
This mode pits two teams against each other, with the Blue Team searching for and protecting the KEROTAN target, and the Red Team searching for and protecting the GA-KO target. Each time a team passes a check point with its target in hand, a new checkpoint will be generated. If a team drops its target and the target is not retrieved within a set period of time, the targetâ€™s position will be reset and the checkpoint will change.
Sounds fun to me, but it will depend how well your team helps protect the carrier of the KEROTAN/GA-KO. This mode will force teamwork that’s for sure, which is good. The other new feature is called the â€œPatriot” which is available to all players, starting on May 26th. I wonder what the recoil is like on the gun. I hope I’m lucky enough to get selected for a week.
This feature will select a few lucky players every week starting from the 26th, and give them exclusive access to a 5.56mm Hand Rifle with infinite ammunition and no reload. Players will have access to these unique â€œPatriotâ€ features until the next ranking update. Youâ€™d better watch out when a â€œPatriotâ€ joins your game!
I’m amazed the support Metal Gear Online is getting, they have added a lot of features since it’s release. Plus they have something in store for the one year anniversary of Metal Gear Solid 4. Mmm, wonder what it could be.
Just a reminder you can purchase the MGO Expansion packs with the PlayStation Network Wallet now.
