New DLC for Metal Gear Online coming in March
New multiplayer content, including maps and playable character
Konami has announced a new DLC campaign for Metal Gear Online, the multiplayer component of MGS V: The Phantom Pain.
Named Cloaked in Silence ($3.99), the new content will be released in March 2016 and adds new maps, a new character and additional content. The three new maps will be Coral Complex, Rust Palace, and Azure Mountain.
The DLC also sees the debut of Quiet as a playable character. She is a legendary sniper who can take out distant targets with excellent accuracy. Quiet’s movement speed is extremely fast and allows for unique jumping abilities over high steps where a player would usually need a ladder. She can also temporarily cloak her visibility while sprinting to activate a boost in movement speed.
Additional DLC includes Appeal Action ($1.99), which trigger a unique character pose. Players can preset up to five different slots per character with additional packs available for purchase in-store.
At the same time as the DLC release, a free update to the game will add a new competitive mission, Sabotage. Attackers must destroy or fulton the enemy Missile before the round expires. To access the Missile, attackers must first hack into the Terminals to deactivate the Electromagnetic (EM) Barrier that is protecting it. Once the Terminals are hacked and the EM Barrier is deactivated, defenders can choose to reactivate the EM Barrier or protect the Missile.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is available now for PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, and PS4.
