Konami has announced a March 17th release date for the Metal Gear Online SCENE expansion, with some amazing new outfits and a new game type joining the already impressive feature lineup.

Three new maps and two new super-powerful playable characters are just the tip of the iceberg for Konami's upcoming SCENE expansion for Metal Gear Online. Along with the introduction of Raiden and Vamp and the maps revealed during the initial announcement, a whole mess of new special gear is coming along with it. Players will be able to dress themselves in bikinis, clown face paint, a hockey mask, and even the head of Robbie the Rabbit from Silent Hill. If ever a rabbit needed to be shot, this is the rabbit.

Along with the new clothes comes a new game type, free to all players whether or not they purchase the pack. Solo Capture is the same as Team Capture, only you're alone.


The Metal Gear Online SCENE expansion will be available via the in-game shop or on Konami's website on March 17th for $9.99, with pre-orders kicking off on the 10th. Players playing catch-up can get SCENE and the MEME expansion for $14.99, or SCENE, MEME, and GENE for $17.99.
