KONAMI ANNOUNCES FREE BOMB
MISSION FOR METAL GEAR ONLINE
All-New Mission Enhances MGO
Experience By Requiring Players to Eliminate the Defending Team, Protect the
Base, and Plant Bombs to Destroy the Defending Team Stronghold
Konami announced today that an
all-new mission for the hit online tactical shooter, Metal Gear Online, the
online multi-player player experience that is included free in the retail
version of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, will be available for
download on January 27th. Free to all registered Metal Gear Online users, the
Bomb Mission provides players with an all-new combat experience that expands the
playability and adds variety to the online phenomenon. The new mission will
automatically be implemented during the regular Metal Gear™ Online maintenance
when players sign into their MGO accounts.
In the new mission, the offensive
team’s objectives will be to detonate a bomb at a targeted location in the map
and protect it until it explodes. The defending team must protect its stronghold
and prevent the planted bombs from detonating by using a special coolant to
nullify an activated bomb and stop the attacking team from approaching the base.
To complete the mission and come out victorious the attacking team must detonate
the bomb within the mission time limit if they fail the defending team wins.
