Metal Gear Solid fans may be pleased to hear that they can now download the beta version of Konami’s Metal Gear Online via the PlayStation Store on the PS3. The download is free and weighs in at 741MB, although you’ll have to wait until 21st April to play it, with the beta running until 6th May. The final version of Metal Gear Online will be bundled with Metal Gear Solid 4, which is scheduled for release on 12th June this year.
The beta phase features two maps, four gameplay modes, the SOP System that encourages up to 16 players to team up and share information, and deep skill-customization. Also equipped with auto-matching and training modes, the game offers players a sneak peak of this totally new approach to console-based competitive gaming.Source: Konami
