Stealth Is Still Essential In Metal Gear Online

GameSpot got a hands-on experience on?Metal Gear Online during Tokyo Game Show 2015. They said they have barely seen everything that MGO has to offer despite having spent over six hours playing the game. Unlike the main story missions in all Metal Gear Solid games including MGS5 TPP, teamwork looks to be an integral part of MGO, particularly in the Cloak and Dagger mode.

The Cloak and Dagger mode is a traditional attack and defense mode, but it necessitates the attacking team to use non-lethal weapons in close quarters combat, GameSpot said. This means that attackers cannot run and gun their way to victory because of the advantage given to defenders. ?Cloak and Dagger is the mode I?m most looking forward to playing when MGO launches. It?s the tense stealth of the Phantom Pain?s single player, meshed with the tactics of human-against human scenarios,? GameSpot wrote.

?The character progression is appealing, and the maps are well designed. But the most attractive thing about Metal Gear Online is the wealth of ridiculous situations, and absurd results, ready to be used against an unwitting attacker meters outside of the evac zone.

All players who have a copy of Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain will receive the MGO update for free. PC owners, however, will have to wait until July to play MGO.
