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 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.
