Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain To Get Horse Armor DLC; New Video Showcases Metal Gear Online


Exhausted all of the customization options for the ever-loyal D-Horse in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain? Konami has the answer. In tandem with a detailed gameplay trailer for the title’s soon-to-be-released multiplayer component, Metal Gear Online, the publisher has revealed some cosmetic DLC that will be headed to the stealth sequel in the coming weeks.

Paying homage to the franchise’s prestigious history, the add-ons – which can be glimpsed in the gallery below – include alternative costumes for the female soldiers of Mother Base. Taking cues from the outfits worn by The Boss and EVA in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, there’s still no word on pricing or an official release date for the cosmetic items, though there’s even alternative horse armor for D-Horse included, too.

As for the retooled and rebooted Metal Gear Online, Konami is primed to launch the service in a few weeks’ time, opening up the tactical, clandestine gameplay of The Phantom Pain to a multiplayer arena. With an array of customization options and the like, there’s plenty to get excited about for MGO‘s debut, and the company detailed a trio of classes that will be made available from day one.

Scout Class – With advanced scouting capabilities, the “Recon Class” specialties are long-range combat and support functions. Movement speed and strength are average making this a great choice for beginners.

Enforcer Class – With great strength, the “Heavy Class” specializes in powerful weapons. However, movement speed is slow making this class less effective in close quarters. This class is for intermediate players.

Infiltrator Class – Fast moving, the “Infiltration Class” specialty is close combat such as CQC. Due to the strength being low, you should avoid a head-on battle. This is a class for experienced players.

Metal Gear Online will launch on October 6. To get an early glimpse of the tactical espionage action, you can check you the gallery below. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on the other hand – the masterpiece that it is – is available now.
