Konami Reveals New Race Mission
and Patriot Details for Metal Gear Online
Konami unveiled today, new details
for its latest Race Mission mode for Metal Gear Online, the ultimate
squad-based, tactical shooter based on the popular Metal Gear Solid franchise.
The Race Mission mode pits two teams of Metal Gear Online players. The Blue Team
has to search and protect the KEROTAN target, while the Red Team search and
protects the GA-KO target. Each time a team passes a checkpoint with its target
in hand, a new checkpoint will be generated. If a team drops its target and is
not retrieved within a set period of time, the target’s position will be reset
and the checkpoint will change. The Race Mission feature is scheduled to go live
on May 12th, 2009.
Konami also unveiled details on a
new Patriot feature that will pick a few lucky players every week to become
"Patriots." The selected players will get exclusive access to the "Patriot"
5.56mm Hand Rifle that has infinite ammunition with no reload. The player will
have access to these unique Patriot features until the next ranking update. The
Patriot Feature is scheduled to go live on May 26th, 2009.
