Following the games launch on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One; Konami Digital Entertainment have confirmed that PC owners of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain can now access Metal Gear Online via Steam.
Metal Gear Online is a dedicated squad-based competitive multiplayer game, which has been fully redesigned within the gameplay and aesthetic styling of the Metal Gear Solid series. The online element introduces Tactical Team Operations and features a ‘class system’ that defines certain strengths and abilities of player characters on the battlefield. Players can select from three distinct classes: Scout, Enforcer and Infiltrator.
A total of sixteen players can go up against each other at once with 8 vs 8 PvP combat. Players can select different missions, implement special customization options, and take advantage of different support weapons tailored towards the online multiplayer experience.
