Watch the Metal Gear Online trailer with commentary by Kojima Productions LA

Konami has released a new video for Metal Gear Online, in which Robert Peeler comments on the trailer debuted at the Video Game Awards last year. Below is the new information he shared.

  • At the beginning the characters can be seen selecting their gear using the iDroid.
  • There will be more customization options, weapons and items in the final game than those seen in the trailer.


  • In the trailer the teams are 8 vs 8, but the game also supports a 6 vs 6 mode.
  • The trailer was meant to highlight teamwork, since this is at the heart of MGO.
  • The grenade Snake uses marks enemies within the radius, allowing your teammates to see them from afar and through walls (similar to the marking system in the main game).


  • Different CQC moves are available to the player.
  • The Fulton Trap, which transports enemies outside the map, was detailed last week.


  • In the trailer the objective is to steal an item, but gameplay modes can have multiple or alternate objectives.


  • The puppy item is the new version of the dirty magazine from the old games – it temporarily distracts enemies. Originally the team designed a animal magazine, and then a real puppy, but they decided on the stuffed animal since they didn’t want players to go around shooting puppies.


  • The ‘E’ in the title has multiple meanings: the ‘E’ from ‘Online’, a ‘3’ (since it’s the third MGO game) and the Japanese kanji character ‘san’ (三), which translates to ‘three’.
  • MGO is meant to be more lighthearted than The Phantom Pain. The selfie seen at the end of the trailer is an example of that.

Metal Gear Online will be bundled with Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain when it releases on September 1st of this year.

    haha and we expected so much more … instead we got a Yongyea Rehash xD EVERYONE BLAME IGN… Kojima probably thought that a release date would be enough but unfortunately that was leaked so it sorta killed the Buzz for the actual event 😛
    As for this.. MGO is no doubt gonna be the best Online Game after Gta. Anyone disagreeing to that ..should ..just… eat a ..bubblegum.

    In other news…

    Mad max cancelled for Old gen…

    Seriously that is what im doing right now..
    This means there are only 2 games left to play on our old gen, guys.. MKx and TPP.. That is ALL we have.

    • MrVux007

      now im sad…..why u do dis ?

    • RevolverRoden

      I’m gonna buy a PS4 for TPP. I can’t play it without it being perfect (yeah yeah PC but I do consoles mainly plus I cant wait 2 more weeks). And yeah I feel bad for Kojima with that leak. He looked so excited in that video too. Little did he know that some dunce at IGN would leak the huge announcement. The announcement that fans had been waiting for forever. Man… I get mad every time I think about it.

      • Shalashaska

        Man I wish I had money to get it :'( But I wont be able to get anything new for atleast a year or two now :'(

      • Yofiel Malachi Yacov

        Why? I’m pretty sure he doesn’t even care. It was a day before not like it was spoiled six months in advance.

        People act like kojima doesn’t work for konami like he plans and does everything. If anything he probably was inconvenienced to do press while working hard on the game

    • And battlefield hardline

      • Shalashaska

        hehe didnt care about battlefield hardline tbh.. mad max, Mkx and TPP were everything :'(

    • Yofiel Malachi Yacov

      After GTA ? What are you smoking!?

      • Shalashaska

        I only saw after GTA because gta had open-world multiplayer, didnt it ? As for TPP, I dont think it does 🙂

        • Yofiel Malachi Yacov

          It still doesn’t to me. Mgo is intense as well as laid back. Team play is very rewarding. Gta to me, not so much. It’s a bunch of running around. I don’t like that

  • MrVux007

    ahhhh the concept art is beautiful

    • Ricardo Oe

      MgO2 was always the best online game of all time ; I hope Mgo3 be better …

  • ObsessedGeorge

    Any possibility that the game takes so long to release is because of MGO?

    • MrVux007

      nah…you know Kojima….he wants perfection,perfection and more perfection

      • Mini gear

        the games been perfect since 3/1/2015 :p

      • Josh Houchin

        If behind the scenes documentaries from previous games are any indication, he’ll still be adding features between now & release.

    • Shalashaska

      Nope. INFACT im betting its the other way round considering how many pictures we have seen of the mgo team playing the game and enjoying it

    • Javier Sosa

      Yeah, its just for say We release the full game in the first day

    • Altaim

      i was thinking the same thing

    • Edward Wokhands

      Well didn’t they say they were considering releasing single player first and then multiplayer like GTA5? They hadn’t decided it yet. I hope they aren’t doing that but 6 months seems like a long time considering how close to the end they were in Jan. I mean September is nearly the end of 2015. The Japanese voice acting they were recording would literally take a few days to get into the game once it was recorded. Ugggghhhh, I really hope they aren’t just delaying this to release both at the same time. Not that we’ll ever know.

  • Plissken

    Its great when your team actually plays well together, like in the trailer. But most of the time, everyone just runs around blasting and I’m sneaking up on people in a cardboard box. The box really is the most versatile tool in your equipment

    • Josh Houchin

      Hopefully we can spend the next 6 months meeting good future teammates here on MGI

      • Plissken

        Yeah, sounds like a plan. I intend on getting MGSV for Xbox 360 and for PS4, waiting to get that Diamond Dog PS4

        • Josh Houchin

          I’ll be playing on PS4. I wonder how the servers will be split up? I live in the US, but I know there are a lot of international commenters here on the site.

    • Shalashaska

      Im being REALLY honest.. If i was a teammate (that is if i could play mgo) I would probably coordinate and work with my teammates.. Im more of that type whocovers a team mate’s back while he cover’s mine
      I use all the tactics i have seen in movies/games of swat/army etc etc etc.. it’s pretty effective too. WAS DAMN EFFECTIVE when i used to play Counter strike – a 2.5KD ratio doesnt come out of no where hehehe .. yea i maybe boasting xD

  • John Rhogan

    As gorgeous as MGO3 looks, I’m not getting involved. Had a rather bad experience with MGS4 MGO.

    • Chris Jackson

      Bad as in other players bad? Not everyone’s the same. This is a whole new game too.

  • The must useless video ever haha

  • PrinceHeir

    I like how they used the kanji 三 as three. Nice touch combining cultures from East and West 🙂

    I think the marketing system seems kinda broken. You can just scout enemies from a far and mark them so your team mates can flank them.

    Unless they put a skill where they can’t be marked ala The Last of US Anti Marking system.

  • Javier Sosa

    Thanks to mgo3 we got tpp in september.

  • Jason Mounce

    Anyone see this yet?

    I mean, does anyone even know how many people I’d have to fucking mock and slam this in their face if it were true? I’ve been on the ‘Gray Fox likely is Venom Snake’ for the longest time and the amount of shit I get from obnoxious, aggressively stubborn and closed-minded people are MIND-BLOWING. I have like a giant mailing list of people told me I was an idiot >_> and all those people I wrote down, knowing that if the time came and I was right, then all those who dared harass me on my fun little acceptance of a theory will SUFFER! A LONG, THUNDEROUS RAIN OF MY TRIUMPH AS I DESTROY THEM WITH MY ANGER AND EXCITEMENT….

    Cause, being told you’re wrong and being argued with as often as I have about my simple belief that the theory is (To me) likely what’s going to happen – it pisses me off how arrogant, ignorant and fucking conceited people get when they deny these kind of theories….

    • No Place For Hayter

      This theory might actually get more traction with this, lol (face palm) I’m of the crowd that thinks is it wrong and that if it were true it would undermine the purpose of the game and I would simply hate the story of MGSV-TPP.

      That being said there is enough out there to convince people of the theory so it isn’t in anyway retarded to believe despite what I think of it, and that people form all sorts of ideas and theories surrounding every MGS game simply because of the nature of Kojima, so while I believe otherwise I’m not going to bash anyone who thinks so, if people didn’t create and or believe these things MGS launches would be less entertaining.

      If it is true I wish you luck on the quest of vengeance (lol) against those who don’t understand simply diversity, and if it is wrong than I won’t be jumping on anyone who believed it because they had good reason too.

      It is still funny to see stuff like this coming out, I felt like we had entered the silent waiting phase and people would stop analyzing lol.

      • Jason Mounce


        But yeah. Cause it’s not like I was going around saying “It’s 100% fact” I was just leaning on the preference that I believe it’s the most likely of all theories – if MGS5 had any form of twist to it and simply wasn’t “BB being evil-BB”

        Stop analyzing Anything-MGS or anything Kojima puts out? PFFFT xD

        • Pretty sure Big Boss in MGSV is… Big Boss. But theories are always welcome. 🙂

          • Jason Mounce

            We ultimately will see what’s up when it launches course. Albeit, September is MUCH farther than anticipated….

    • Chris Jackson

      …I’m not being arrogant (that’s not what this site is for), but look at the facts: Frank Jaeger, Naomi’s guardian, the cyborg ninja, worked with Big Boss and Snake in the first one. In the second, you fight Gray Fox, and of course, Big Boss elsewhere. Big Boss’s remains are kept elsewhere while Gray Fox is turned into a cyborg ninja who is then squashed in MGS1.

      If you count Portable Ops, Null is Gray Fox. You’re Big Boss and you find him.

      All of these facts outnumber the one hand placement in the photo. The ear and nose parts are scars, not chopped off parts. The rest of his face has scars too, all from the end of Ground Zeroes.

      • Jason Mounce

        Hnnng. You say ‘look at the facts’ then begin talking with such blasphemy wherein you actually try to act as if Portable Ops was canon….How dare you…. No, we don’t count Portable Ops, yes we find him but with that canned, BB has never met Gray Fox/Jaeger yet.

        Beyond that, everything else you mention where he works with Solid Snake and Big Boss seem a bit redundant? How are these ‘Facts that overwhelm’ or ‘Facts that dismiss’ the theory? You make absolutely no sense. How does Jaeger working for BB mean that he can’t be replacing him while he’s in a coma? Let alone I figure it extremely suspicious that we’ve not seen a Single screenshot of him in MGS5 even though we know we run into him and is an important character, we get to see Young Liquid and not Jaeger? Cause that ain’t in any way odd or suspicious. Jaeger magically also becomes BB’s most trusted right-hand Somehow in one game alone. I’d think it’d take quite a bit of work wherein Quiet can save Big Boss and BB’s all like “I’ll kill her in the end lol” but Gray Fox is becomes the most trusted along with Miller? What in your mind would Jaeger have to do to make BB trust him THAT god damn much? Something mind blowing that’s for sure.

        But no seriously. You overuse ‘Facts’, you’re merely speculating yourself beyond what is merely obvious elements in MG1/MG2, Do -Not- claim what you say is ‘facts’ when yours is just the same in speculation and theorizing.

        • Chris Jackson

          Wow… Cool it man. That is, if you’re actually serious… Mine are things you actually play through in the games. Your’s is one picture with his hand on his face, not even in the same spot. But I tell you what: When Phantom Pain comes along, and you’re right, that’s when you can say “I told you so”. Otherwise, calm down.

          • Jason Mounce

            That comment was a mix of two things, one was horrible English and at the same time shows to me how you have a horrible imagination.

            Just drop the pseudo-arrogance though, that’d be best. I can see your condescending tone and it’s not like it matches when you pretended to be using ‘facts’ and emphasized that enough times. I will very much be there to say ‘told you so’ to a few when it happens, but that does not excuse your attitude as well.

          • Chris Jackson

            Whatever. Keep your own opinion. You feel like getting angry or obnoxious, so be it.

          • Jason Mounce

            I am keeping my own opinion. lmao. Besides, my posts were never ‘angry’ but you incessantly keep pestering as if I’m raging and angry, when I’m simply being blunt.

            Nothing I said was obnoxious however, because I always refer to my belief in a theory as just that, a belief. You however, attempted to use your beliefs and presented them acting as if they were Facts while not even knowing the facts about the MGS timeline. So, future-reference, don’t do logical fallacies.

          • Chris Jackson

            *Sigh* Whatever man. If you want me to say I’ve learned a lesson, then fine. Whatever floats your boat. All I know is that everything I said was true.

          • Jason Mounce

            “…I’m not being arrogant (that’s not what this site is for), but—”

            “Whatever floats your boat. All I know is that everything I said was true.”

            LOL. No, narcissistic people like you Never learn a lesson, not sure who you’re trying to fool. Just stop posting, you’re only digging yourself a hole and it’s becoming embarrassing to read your responses and how completely bloody full of yourself you are. It’s sickening.

          • Chris Jackson

            Reading from people like you is sickening.

          • Jason Mounce

            I know you’d rather listen to yourself talking, while likely staring in a mirror – but hey, we can’t all get what we want.

            But no seriously, get that ego checked. I know egocentrism when I see it.

  • RevolverRoden

    BROTHERS. 6 long months, and the wait is finally over.

    • Boris Leal

      long way down…but I can see light at the end of the tunnel!

    • Ventris

      6 months is not that long when you look at almost 7 years of waiting since MGS4. 😀

    • Big_Boss88

      Indeed ^_^, 6 months is nothing :D. It will go fast even if it feels to be far away.
      TPP calls for wetwork and we answer!

      • RevolverRoden

        What sucks is that I have to look forward to September now. Which means I have to look forward to the summer ending and cold weather.

        And classes to start again… blech

        • Edward Wokhands

          What’s more awesome than getting in from the cold and being able to play MGS5?

  • Even Yong Yea video explaining all this was longer and detailed, lol.

    • Shalashaska

      50minutes if im not wrong.

  • vic boss

    Watching this video has made me realize how thankful I am to be alive to play these games, and how thankful I am to god and to Hideo Kojima for creating such masterpieces, I truly hope TPP is not his last metal gear. and to think he wanted to be a cop, that later he wanted to do movies…
    Thanks Mr. Kojima for creating this amazing saga.

    • Chris Jackson

      I think Kojima ending with his best will be a good thing. As unbelievable as it may sound, more Metal Gears from him could eventually feel like they’re recycling from past games, or feel like they have less than other Metal Gears, especially after having this huge, open world and tons of options.

      • vic boss

        You’re right it’ll be better as he will go into another projects(games) like silent hills, but there’s just to many people who haven’t played metal gear and metal gear 2 myself included. I would hope he remakes those two games in the fox engine and that Kojima Productions or other studio remakes the original Metal Gear Solid in the fox engine and Hideo Kojima could be in it as a producer.

    • Yofiel Malachi Yacov

      A lot can happen in six months we can die.

  • Invader_skoodge

    A bit *Off Topic*

    Today is Momofuku Ando’s birthday. He invented the instant noodles. One of Snake’s better(tastier) food choices. Personally, this miracle food made life after highschool very affordable. The struggle. lol

    • Big_Boss88

      I love noodles.

    • RevolverRoden

      That classic Hayter grumble in the end. HAHAHA

  • They don’t say if you can play with other players from differents platforms.

    • Ventris

      They said there will be more updates in next 6 months…
      Maybe we’ll get that info later.

  • Big_Boss88

    I am excited to play MGO3 after my TPP experience :). Never got the chance to play MGO2 very much ;(…

    • Kol Leqejza

      i’ve played singleplayer like a hundred times minimum. for the online part… like 10 times? i liked MGO 1 better. MGO 2 was not that much of a quantom leap like MGO 3 seems to be. just my opinion. u all are enlightened to love MGO2

  • Ah the glory days of MGO will be upon us soon, now I just gotta regroup my old unit.
