by Rainier on Jan. 19, 2016 @ 2:58 p.m. PST

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is the latest installment in the MGS franchise, powered by the new FOX engine.

Taking place nine years after the events of MGSV: Ground Zeroes and the fall of Mother Base, Snake a.k.a. Big Boss, awakes from a near decade-long coma. The game resumes the story in 1984, with the Cold War still as the backdrop, which continues to shape a global crisis. Snake’s journey takes him into a world where he is driven by a need for revenge and the pursuit of a shadow group, XOF.

With its open-world design, photo realistic visual fidelity and feature-rich game design, MGS V: The Phantom Pain will leave its mark as one of the hallmarks in the gaming industry for its cinematic storytelling, heavy themes, and immersive tactical gameplay.

In addition to the franchise's returning characters, such as Snake, Kazuhira Miller, Ocelot, and Emmerich, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will introduce all new characters to the Metal Gear universe. The storyline will focus on dark themes that portray the ugliness and tragedy of war, as a legendary hero falls from grace.

Metal Gear Online is a dedicated multi-player mode that segues into elements of the main game and will be included with the single player campaign in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain at no extra cost.

Metal Gear Online represents the third iteration of the popular multiplayer game, newly redesigned with the familiar gameplay and aesthetic styling of its companion single-player campaign Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. With a focus on Tactical Team Operations, the game features a ‘class system’ that more uniquely defines the strengths and abilities of player characters on the battle field. Key characters from the series including Venom Snake and Ocelot will also make appearances in the anticipated multiplayer feature.

After briefly launching last week, MGO Beta was pulled the next day but has now re-launched again.

Metal Gear Online is built around a dedicated squad-based competitive multiplayer structure, which has been fully redesigned with the familiar gameplay and aesthetic styling of the acclaimed METAL GEAR SOLID series. The online element introduces Tactical Team Operations and features a ‘class system’ that more uniquely defines the strengths and abilities of player characters on the battlefield. Players can select from 3 distinct classes: Scout, Enforcer and Infiltrator.

Metal Gear Online also supports 16-player online battles for 8v8 PvP combat (up to 12 players only for PS3 / Xbox 360). Players can select different missions, utilize special customization options, and take advantage of support weapons unique to the online multiplayer title.Metal Gear Online also features a revised version of the Buddy system, pairing two players as allies for enhanced, multiplayer benefits.
