It appears that a new version of Metal Gear Online will be included in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain when it is released sometime next year. Hideo Kojima will be appearing at the Video Game Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada next week on Friday December 5, and he has already revealed that the first footage from the new Metal Gear Online will be shown off right there and then.
Polygon picked up the news, which will see a return for the online service which was shut off in 2012. There were versions of the online game released as part of both Metal Gear Sold 3: Snake Eater on PlayStation 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots on PlayStation 3. The world premiere of this latest version is particularly fitting for the VGA show, as the Phantom Pain was first revealed at the very same show two years ago.
Come back here next week, as there is bound to be plenty of footage to check out after the VGA show.
If I'm not playing on a good Adventure Game - still longing for the long-past Golden Age of the genre, when Lucasarts and Sierra ruled supreme - you might find me searching for a local arcade, in the hopes that it still houses titles such as Sunset Riders or WindJammers.
