Here’s hoping we’ll get a good luck at this mode.
Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is now officially released and available on a number of different platforms. Its multiplayer online component, which was originally expected to be ready when the offline game launched now isn’t coming until October. Luckily for you, there will be a way to get a look at the online component of the game ahead of it’s launch, as long as you can afford a plane ticket to Japan. Konami announced this week that it will be showing off, complete with a playable demo of Metal Gear Online 3.
Of course, shortly after they announced that the demo would be shown off at the Tokyo Games Show, the company deleted the announcement from it’s Twitter account. That could mean one of two things. Either someone at the company got some wrong information and then went public with it, or they simply announced the information sooner than they were supposed to announce. We do know that the YouTube Stream link that went live about the same time as the announcement is actually still going strong. It’s expected to go live on September 17 and that particular date is the same as the official start of TGS.
The pulling of the tweet does have some people wondering if maybe Konami is actually going to have to delay Metal Gear Online yet again. One would certainly hope not if only because the game is getting some rather rave reviews since it has launched. Hopefully it’s going to launch when it was supposed to considering that this version of the mode is allowing a never before seen 16 players at one time.
