Konami has officially unveiled Metal Gear Solid 5: The Definitive Experience for PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC. This should definitely please those that haven’t picked up the game yet. Long time fans are also happy that they will have this to play instead of Metal Gear Survive. Now that this version of the game is coming, fans are wondering if the Nuclear Disarmament event will continue.
Fans will remember it as one of the bigger events from Metal Gear Online. Basically, players had to band together and disarm all of the nuclear weapons. Since this is a game with an online community, it is much easier than it sounds. Asking hundreds or thousands of players to not do something is pretty impossible.
In 2016, Konami seems to have canceled the event altogether. The event was originally leaked to the public, but it seems like Konami have no plans to bring it back. This is a shame since the Metal Gear games have such a big fan base. Considering how the company now makes pachinko machines and dull multiplayer shooters, one can imagine how angry the fans are.
Multiplayer games aren’t always known for collective unity, so it’s a shame Konami canceled the event. Some of the fans actually wanted to clean up the nuclear weapons, and a great number of them did. But like Michael Caine’s Alfred once said, ?Some people just want to watch the world burn.?
Will the event return now that Metal Gear Solid 5: The Definitive Experience has been announced? It’s not impossible, especially with the game getting a re-release. Few games have left as big an impact as Metal Gear Solid 5 and its online mode. It would be a nice move to bring the event back.
Considering the amount of attention it got when it was first leaked, Konami should at least consider it. It might not change fans? opinion about Metal Gear Survive, but it could soften the blow it will get.?Metal Gear Solid 5: The Definitive Edition is slated for an October 11 release on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
