Snake Goes Online

Following the announcement of Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence for the PS2 were some quick first details on this recreation of last year’s smash hit Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. For the first time in the history of the Metal Gear franchise, gamers can play in an online gameplay environment.

In the new “Online Mode�, gamers can choose their mission and rules, including “Team Battle� and “Snake and Enemy� (one person becomes Snake and the other person blocks out his mission), and then fight it out online. This new mode also brings the classic Metal Gear Solid combat elements into online play, such as the “Close Quarters Combat (CQC)� proximity encounters, stealth and sniping.
