Konami have announced that March’s Metal Gear Online update will add unique character Quiet as well as three new maps as part of a paid expansion package.
Titled ‘Cloaked in Silence’, the expansion will cost €3.99 (UK pricing yet to be confirmed) and will be released sometime next month. The DLC will include Quiet, the three maps as well as adding the Appeal Action feature, which triggers unique character poses. The three news maps are detailed below:
Coral Complex: A dedicated Motherbase environment, allowing players to access tall towers and use storage containers and other internal areas as cover for tactical advantage. Coral Complex mixes open areas and a myriad of hiding opportunities.
Rust Palace: Set within Afghanistan, the Rust Palace is a large multi-level building. The skeletal nature of the decrepit ruin means that cover is scarce, while the internal areas are rich in dusty rooms and high-up sniping positions.
Azure Mountain: An outdoor plain under Africa’s baking sky. A small cluster of buildings offers scant cover, with only derelict walls and occasional scrubland surrounding the massive rock known locally as the Cradle of Spirits.
The update will also bring a new competitive mission called Sabotage, which will be free to all players. Attackers must destroy or fulton an enemy missile before the round expires; but to access the missile, attackers must first hack into the Terminals to deactivate the Electromagnetic (EM) Barrier that is protecting it. Once the Terminals are hacked and the EM Barrier is deactivated, defenders can choose to reactivate the Barrier or protect the Missile.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is available now on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
