Take A Good Look at Metal Gear Solid V's Multiplayer

Konami's finally giving the world a look at the multplayer component of the next Metal Gear Solid this week.

First unveiled at Gamescom last week, The Phantom Pain's online portion will have players invading each others' bases. This video from IGN starts off with the previously shown chunk of the single-player campaign; seven minutes of multiplayer start at 16:55.


The preview gives a look rewards from the single-player campaign can be used to trick out individual bases, making them trickier to infiltrate. You can also use the Fulton balloon to yank stuff back to your own ops center, including enemy soldiers that you can convince to work for your version of Snake.

The next Metal Gear Online is the multiplayer component everyone was expecting to be announced, this base building stuff was a surprise to most, so that headline hurts about as much as the IGN announcement when it was confirmed to not be the next MGO. Last we heard of MGO was the LA studio supposedly making it was looking for people about 2 years ago…

Don't mean to be a jerk but maybe adding the fact that this isn't MGO in some capacity might be nice.

I really want MGO...
