MGO: New map and Snaaaake

MGO: New map and Snaaaake

It didn't take long for the Metal Gear Online beta to be updated with a new map and a new gameplay mode. And this mode will sure please a lot of the fans of the series since it involves one player controlling Snake and trying to stay alive. Thanks to KurowaSan for the video.
Update: Dot50Cal sent us this video yesterday showing the first map via the viewpoint of two players. No there isn't any splitscreen mode, it's just 2 videos spliced into one.
Update 2: DjMizuhara sent us this video showing Snake in action, it was his first playing as the old guy, so he definitely doesn't show all his moves there.

Played it a few minutes ago, its great...however, playing as Snake is difficault, while as MK is quite easy.

I was surprised when I saw "M.M" I thought "new map?
And when I saw it it was very cool, like the gameplay footages we kept seeing, a bit.

WoW mode looks great! its just like a mgs game would work online... nice footage! I must say im impressed Konaimi.. anyone know whats the lag like on PSN now? I read some terrible news about this beta on other forums.

Another thing I noticed was text messaging? with a portable keyboard itll be ok I guess.. but still its a bit strange with all the voice chat on XBL.. doesnt the PSN feuture voice chat? or is all optional?

LOL online the OctaCamo = Stealth Camo. Except you have to be stationary or more very slow. The MK2Metal Gear though has actual stealth camo so you can drive around and zap people with out them knowing. Although they can see the shadow and kill you.

the new map is the best multiplayer map i've played for years, that blur effect is really cool, snake is ace but I couldn't hit a thing with mk2

The new map is ace, dept of field effects, the fire effects are cool too, and the graphics look excellent. Love it.

M.M and G.G are my favorites in the beta...but once it switches to B.B I am going out.
That map is damn boring, so tight and its just bad. For such a game a map like that isnt the best one.

I hope they add Shadow Moses as DLC, now that would be a sight of glory :D
