Metal Gear Online Gets Patched and a ‘New’ Game Mode

Not content with allowing only one player to be stealthy at a time, Konami has an update for Metal Gear Online that makes two significant additions. The first is a new mode, “Team Sneaking,” which is simply a team variant of the already existing “Sneaking” mode, where one team is invisible and has to infiltrate the enemy’s base and destroy something. But, if the team is spotted, they will become visible until a timer runs down, similar to the way the single-player MGS games work.

The other noteworthy new feature is an option for hosts to enable: headshots only. It’s self-explanatory enough, with the one exception of the game penalizing you for any kills you make that don’t come as a result of headshots. That should make for an interesting twist if precision aiming is your thing.

This new update is now available for free. If you happen to try it out, come back and let us know what you think.
