Konami has dropped details on the first Metal Gear Online expansion, known as the "Gene Expansion," on its official web site. The expansion adds some of what you'd expect โ€” three new maps, two new playable characters in Meryl Silverburgh and incompetent incontinent Johnny "Akiba" โ€” and a few things you might not. Included in the expansion, which we don't yet see a price for, is the ability to play as customizable female characters, a "Survival" mode and a Reward Shop for spending your in-game points on new gear. Neat!
