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 target’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 “Patriot” 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 “Patriot” features until the next ranking update. You’d better watch out when a “Patriot” 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.
