****** ON APRIL 4th 2007 THE ONLINE SERVERS WERE SHUT DOWN ******
With the release of MGS3:Subsistence a little over a week away (March 14th), I thought it was prudent to create a thread dedicated to the online multiplayer portion of the game.
Yesterday Konami finally opened the U.S. website, complete with an online guide: http://www.konami.jp/gs/game/mgs3_sub/america/mgs/online_01.html
They also posted up the instruction manga that is found inside the game manual: http://www.konami.jp/gs/game/mgo/america/mgo_comic_01.html
Here’s the lowdown:
There are 5 different game modes: Sneaking, Capture, Rescue,Team Death Match and Solo Death Match. They are complemented by 12 levels, more than I was expecting. In addition players have the ability to choose between a few different characters, based on their gamescore in relation to their teammates, and other unknown factors.
Ocelot: Colt Single Action Army, can ricochet it around walls. Low ammo capacity means lots of reloading.
Major Raikov (Raiden): Immune to the playboy’esque magazines that make all other males become distracted for a few seconds. Also has a special punch to the groin area that is capable of KO’ing opponent. Raiden auto-taunts afterward and he is vulnerable during this time.
Sokolov: Has stealth camo.
Reiko Hinomoto (Rumble Roses Chick): Has a special close quarters move called the Sunrise Suplex.
So if everyone wouldn’t mind posting up their handles for PS2 Online, hopefully when the game launches we can get some games in. Also posting up strategies or map specific tactics would be cool too. See everyone in about a week!
