Kojima teases Metal Gear Online title screen… and it features a fish hat

Metal Gear Online is about to be shown at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, and Kojima has teased a photo of the game’s title screen on Twitter.

“METAL GEAR ONI?”

You may be wondering: what on earth am I looking at? Well, probably a character with some… interesting customizations. Maybe this is some of the headwear suggested by fans?

“「三」”

You can see the title screen is similar to the one for The Phantom Pain, except your character isn’t sitting in the chopper but in what looks to be an African environment.

    She’s pretty hot!!!

    • Tom Brearley-Smith

      TENOUTTATEN!!! Would bang!

  • Is it crazy to imagine extra maps for MGO ? Maybe the thing never done so far in game industry is to make the solo mode progress as you progress online !? It would make sense to then unlock omega ? Am I too much dreaming here ? Maybe it is why omega is not yet in da box ?

    • Steven Michael Brown

      That would be amazing. Why are you getting my hopes up?! Lol

      • Sorry they are mine too. I also have the feeling that Omega is extremely well polished for ultimate MGO battles and since Kojima said we will use it with TPP client, plus combined with the fact that people saw omega assets in TPP install… Maybe we will have not that big goodies but I am sure top-notch surprises.

        • Steven Michael Brown

          Yeah I can see it being a mgo map

    • Javier

      We have to accept that the content has been cut and will never be in the game.

      • We also have to receive few other unveiled goodies to come. I am not thinking about extra cut-scenes but raw missions. On a tech POV, missions are bunch of parameters associated with assets. You can see it yet in what we received. Extract this guy, grab this intel, etc… If the extra content we’ll get online can’t be used in solo campaigns, fine, but it wouldn’t be technically so difficult to get at least side-ops list updated with missions to be played in assets delivered with MGO.

    • hunner

      Tons of gamers don’t play online. Most people who bought the game won’t even touch mgo

      • Thanks, I am actually one of them. 😀 But if it is the only way to grab extra offline stuff, I’ll give it a shot.

  • TChâu Kiến Hưng

    Still waiting Chapter 3 confirm….

    • John Saladin

      What about chapter 2 ? You dont want to see the rest of 2 in the game ????

    • IM2PAC

      It’s already confirmed!

      • alancampos

        How so? Links! ;D

        • It is not at all. We would all be nuts if so…

          • IM2PAC

            They didn’t even strath chapter 3 but it was planned

          • IM2PAC

            Go see the character files you see an old venom!

        • IM2PAC

          This was in the game files dammit

          • JJBYACH

            No it wasn’t. The game isn’t “incomplete”, stuff was cut and that sucks, happens all the time, and without actually knowing exactly all of the content that was cut, it is a difficult subject to discuss tactfully and easy to make baseless accusations justifying why a subjective art piece didn’t meet your own personal standards.

          • IM2PAC

            Were you talking to me? Because I never said anything about the game being incomplete and cut content is fine but the filler content I chapter 2 was extremely fuckign shitty

          • JJBYACH

            To paraphrase I believe you said in the files there is proof that chapter 3 exists (or will exist), and since there isn’t any it kinda seems like confirmation bias trying to “justify” the existence of a mystical batch of content that will satisfy people’s personal qualms with the game.

          • IM2PAC

            “But you didn’t have to cutme off”

          • IM2PAC

            I believe we were on good terms a and now you’re talking to me on that tone .

          • JJBYACH

            Sorry if I came across condescending or passive aggressive, I really didn’t mean to offend you, it’s not directed at you, it’s just that the subject matter irks me.

        • IM2PAC

          Seriously is it that hard to search it !

        WTF is that!? I’m developing that monster in this instant!
        Miller, give an announcement to everyone in Mother Base. We’ll stop every other project R&D is working on right now. This will be our top priority. We need every single resource we have to our disposal. We shall be eating one meal per day if necessary.
        Once it’s been completed and ready for deployment, equip Quiet with it and send them to my current location ASAP.
        Don’t forget to include a chair and a sixpack for me as well. I’m gonna tap that “Cover me” command and watch the entire world burn to ashes!

    • Man, in all seriousness that probably sucked to actually have been on that ship haha

      • Correct, I saw that on twitter and just could not stop myself from sharing this here… xD I realized that too afterwards… Do ya want me to delete ?

        • glitchbomb

          What?? Don’t delete it!

          • Well,… (for families of people injured or worse on that ship)… We have to.

          • IM2PAC

            What happened ? You’re talking about ayman kurdi

          • IM2PAC

            Or something similar?

          • IM2PAC

            Aylan kurdi I meant?

          • Nope, it was just a real big cargo sinking because of a fake fulton (cargo grade 6) device.

          • IM2PAC

            Link at least and delete it afterwards?

          • glitchbomb

            You are kidding, right? .
            #1. Crimson comment didn’t imply he wanted you to get rid of it. He was just remarking how crazy it really was.
            #2. I’ve worked as a long shore man on and off for most of my life in the ilwu, and have personally loaded these container ships. Yes that’s a huge loss of cargo but that is no guarantee there was a huge loss of life or anything.

            That being said it’s nice to see someone so considerate. But I think you are fine man.

          • IM2PAC

            What happened ?

          • glitchbomb

            Are you kidding
            #1. I dont think crimson neant to take it down. He was just remarking how crazy it was.
            #2. I work for the ilwu here in sd for years on and off. Almost half my life. I mostly work cold storaye but i have personally loaded these cargo ships. This happens. Yes that’s a huge loss of $$. There’s no guarantee there was a human tragedy though.

            That being said it is kind of nice to see someone as sensitive to perceived tragedy and willing to remove content you just posted, but I think you are fine. Lol

          • IM2PAC

            Link plz?

        • It was cool with me. But others didn’t like it :/ I get it though.

          • I am sure, MGI is a so cool community (I feel like with MB bro’s- Although not that much like quarantined ones, xD)… Perfect stealth goes for jokes too.

      • IM2PAC

        Is that the thing in the phillipines

  • FOX

    So do we need to download the online content or it will just unlock in october?

      Thanks.

    • This is good.

    • Mr. Sir Shpee

      That was really good.

  • GreatShadow

    I hope they include the alligator hat from MGS3 too

  • IM2PAC

    I would love to eat that fish and the one who’s wearing it ofc even if it’s a fake fish.God I love eating suid and fish lol

    • IM2PAC

      Squid

      Squid

  • IM2PAC

    Thank you nwa and tupac

    • IM2PAC

      Especially drdre

  • JJBYACH

    That hat looks so awesome because it looks so photoshoped in that picture lol.

    • glitchbomb

      Right?! HAHA

    • I never saw this menu but the “O” of operations is visible through the fish’s nose area. Even if it is photoshoped, the engine is definitely able to achieve this.

      • Isn’t that just reflection on the fish itself?

        • JJBYACH

          Yeah exactly, at first glance the fish hilariously looks photoshoped due to the lighting, its reflection and seeming disproportionate size.

        • Correct, plus it was a Kojima original post and the engine is totally able to propose such feature.

    • Danny Patten

      The Fish reminds me of that Fish from FC4 😀

  • Y Jebai

    I wann run around wearing that. And I wanna have a male character with pigtails running around in a bikini! Don’t deny me this!

  • AeroGre

    I wanna see what characters we can play as in addition to Boss and Ocelot, like maybe Quiet, Miller with with robot leg and arm, skullface etc

  • IM2PAC

    Funny how my name is 2pac and I’m listening to 2pac.Btw is that fish an arowana

    • IM2PAC

      The one that miller and big boss and some of their soldiers ate in a competition and they ate it rawed with knives lol

  • alenoe97

    IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I have already done a petition on change.org directed to kojima for releasing the missing chapter of TPP!!!!!
    Please support me and share it everywhere!!!!!!!!!
    THOGHETER WE CAN DO IT!!!!!!

    • Danny Patten

      Why? It is not Kojimas decision. I’m afraid to say that you waste your time addressing this to him.

      • alenoe97

        who i have to address?

        • Danny Patten

          The one who owns the money. Konami.

    • JJBYACH

      Well I’m going to play devil’s advocate. Short answer: don’t bother.

      There is no missing chapter, stuff was cut – that sucks, happens all the time. I have not seen a single piece of compelling evidence that suggests this, just logical fallacy. When you step back and look at the game objectively, the way the game ended makes sense (to me at least), fits perfectly into the themes of the narrative and of the series as a whole. I won’t explain here, I already wrote a wall of rambling on why I loved it (and hated it simultaneously) on the spoiler forums. Yes, many factors acting outside of the creators power/intention can effect the piece, but that is part of the art, arguably the most difficult part – working with what you have to fulfil your vision. Maybe it wasn’t what Kojima envisioned when the project started but he had the creative freedom to end the game how he wanted with the resources he had available and he did it the way he thought appropriate and regardless of our subjective opinion on the game.

      Ignoring the technicalities of why they would never re-release the game and focusing on the artistry. It just seems rather “entitled” (hate that word) to want to force a creator to alter his artistic vision so it aligns to your own. In essence I believe if you hate part of an art piece, it’s perfectly fine to hate that part of it (or even the entire thing, as long as your opinion is derived from flaws that objectively subtracts from your subjective interpretation of the artistic vision), instead of trying to ask them to change it.

      So summing up: the game is complete as it is. If you don’t like the content that makes up the sum of its parts, that is fine as long as you have valid criticisms. Don’t need to go looking for proof of a mystical set of content that will fix all problems with the game, or go on our knees begging Konami of all people for it – for DLC. Ew.

      This isn’t directed at you by any means so please don’t be offended, alot of people share this sentiment and I just needed to rant.

      • Boldizar

        The problem is, this game IS grossly incomplete. With and without Chapter 51. It isn’t entitled to expect a complete experience from someone who has delivered some of the most consistently good games for years. It is clear between Kojima and Konami, patience, money, and time ran out, resulting in a solid build of the game that doesn’t include most of the narrative development.

        • JJBYACH

          Well I believe it is a subjective thing. As you stated the metal gear games have been “consistently good”, but not all people would agree, everyone has there own opinions on the game(s) . I think the game is complete as it is, it leaves more questions than answers certainly but upon contemplation after the fact I found the narrative quite affecting and thought provoking – again, just my opinion that very few people seem to share. But the only objective fact that we know is that there is no definitive proof that the game isn’t complete, only hearsay, seemingly broken “promises” from Kojima, the Konami vs Kojima debacle and cut content – all occurrences when viewed separately by their own merits fail to hint at the narrative of this whole debate.

          • Steven Michael Brown

            This^^^^

          • No Place For Hayter

            “there is no definitive proof that the game isn’t complete”

            Yes there is. Mission 51, it was cut from the game leaving massive plot threads unanswered and unexplored, the game isn’t complete because mission 51 wasn’t there. And this is where the “cut content” and “missing content” comes from, if such a crucial story mission was cut from the game what else didn’t make it into the final product? And of course this only highlights the absence of story from the game.

          • Full_Options

            Hi no place,
            the game is broken but if only mission 51 is missing,.. ok. If a whole chapter… What can we do ? but I just started replaying it from scratch and I was shocked how huge it is and how fast I played it without noticing. You guys have to replay it from scratch !! (my take)

        • John Dixon

          It is the Phantom Pain!
          That’s what you get!
          Yo Got kojitrolled bitch
          AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

          • Full_Options

            Therefore, you were trolled with all the games you played so far.

      • Kojimaphile

        Don’t get me wrong I love this game but… It’s not finished. If it ended with Chapter 1, maybe, but Chapter 2 ends abruptly and doesn’t finish not just the Mission 51 thing, but as well as a few subplots. There was a Chapter 3, called “Peace”, and it is rumored to have been about connecting it to MGS1 (which would be vital considering out of the 6 “Sons of Big Boss” from MGS1 only 3 appear) this knowledge was data mined from the game’s PC files, there are a few articles around the web about it.

        • JJBYACH

          Rumored… Yeah. People are just upset and that is fine: it’s okay to feel nothing but abhorrence and disgust at even the thought of this game, it’s normal. The fact that it leaves more questions than answers is a legitimate problem for some people. This game was marketed as the missing link in the entire franchise that will plug every plot hole in the franchise – and the retail game didn’t, it makes 100% sense why some people would be upset. The problem is when people start to invent theories after the fact to give a simple black and white reasoning to why the game isn’t what they wanted – the gaming industry is a turbulent business, and with business more often than not the black’s and white’s continually blur into the same shades of grey where no one can really discern what the hell any of it means.

          • Kojimaphile

            You have a point for the most part. However, when I said “doesn’t finish not just the Mission 51 thing, but as well as a few subplots” I was talking about everything teased and shown in this game alone. I wasn’t referring to the “plug every plot hole” because in my opinion, it did what it had to. However, it then proceeded to add things that went unfinished, the blatant one being Mission 51, obviously. The other ones were more like teases that never end up mentioned again, or never resolved.

            i.e. “The ocelot’s aim is off today.” If you know what scene I’m referring to, then you know what subplot I’m talking about right now. The problem is there is no end to this game: just a sad ending to a character subplot that was entirely optional, and a twist that really didn’t add anything to the story. (Although I, unlike most people it seems, love the twist and find it’s implications on MG1 charming.) The bigger problem? This is Kojima’s last Metal Gear. Only he knows the answers. A new guy can create his own, but only Kojima truly has them.

            You can argue that it’s what people thought the game was versus what it turned out to be, but you would have to be incredibly naive to believe the game’s narrative is anything near “finished”. You can’t leave what Mission 51 answered out of the equation: it implicates future games. As a stand alone game with an inevitable sequel coming soon I could understand. But this is Metal Gear – a game released once every several years that always introduce their own COMPLETE stories.

          • Full_Options

            I think Kojima himself don’t have the real answers neither. TV series or movies are pushed to extreme. Kojima can infinitely keep inventing MG just for us and I would love it. KCE apparently and unfortunately don’t want to ride the roller-coaster any further. I mean he kept elaborating the story since the very first MG and never failed at it. PW was not written in advance, nor was the first MGS or SOL and SE.

          • Kojimaphile

            What I meant was, only he could answer. I would only accept his answer. And as evident by Mission 51 and the possible Chapter 3 there was much more written for MGSV that meets the eye, so he may have some answers. The ones I want, anyway.

          • Full_Options

            100% Ok on this, only his answer matter.

          • JJBYACH

            I think the problem is also that this is it, there is no other Metal Gear game that will contextualise the TPP narrative wise and thematically, like MGS2 – when it came out it made barely any sense when compared with the prior games and seemed really out of place in the series, until the sequels came out and tied it all together. The game kinda dropped a live grenade in our hands and ran off, leaving us fans to theorise – but is that really a bad thing? Subtle foreshadowing and sensible plot devices have never been Kojima’s forte: people complained about why the hell is a vampire in MGS and then Kojima explained it all with the nanomachine nonsense, there was the MG2 retcon, there was literally no need to explain Quiet’s clothing, and many other stuff. So based on the past games and TPP Kojima is quite prone to explaining random occurrences with even more random explanations to justify said randomness. So most of the “unresolved” plot points, like Mantis’ shenanigans, Eli’s Lord of the Flies fantastical remake and CodeTalker’s ramblings, I just rolled with it, ‘cus parasites…

          • Full_Options

            Great analysis. Even science itself did not get yet that nanotech is embedded for decades now in wise enough chemistry.

          • Kojimaphile

            See, that’s why Metal Gear Solid 4 is he worst Metal Gear imo. Kojima explains the seemingly supernatural with nanomachines, and it was as you put “nonsense”. When you have such a great supernatural character in Psycho Mantis, why couldn’t Vamp just naturally have that ability? Ocelot’s father was a medium so it built on the whole “Liquid Ocelot” thing cleverly until “naw self-hypnosis and nanomachines” lol.

            I found myself saying these parasites are a lot like the new (or rather, original) nanomachines, but it’s how subtle they do it in this game that makes me enjoy this game so much. (A parasite that can control bugs? The Pain?)

            tl;dr MGS2 was fine imo and while I feel that you are reaching I also agree somewhat lol

      • ElAlca
        • JJBYACH

          Ah, OK. As I said all the evidence I had previously seen never seemed legit. This looks more compelling. Thanks for giving links.

          • ElAlca

            Yes, I understand, no problem!

    • Boldizar

      This game isn’t even close to being complete and this mission doesn’t represent a fraction of whatever was planned and not disclosed. Either way, we are never getting the real, full game or Kojima experience from this one. Sorry :/

    • No Place For Hayter

      As much as I like your intent, it is pretty obvious that what you are asking it literally impossible for a multitude of reasons.

      P.S. I too can like my own post 😉

      • alenoe97

        Ahahah Ops! Now I will remove the like ahah

  • stocchinet .

    Please i need some advice on a certain mission i put a spoiler warning and some space, please halp!

    SPOILER



































    Ok, i equipped the butterfly emblem after konami’s advice on preventing the “Quiet bug”, but now i can’t unlock mission 45 that i presume it’s her final mission, i unequipped the emblem but nothing happend, what do? I’m doomed to replay everything from the start or can i do something? I still have to do mission 46, don’t know if it depends of it.

    • AeroGre
























      You dont need to take off the emblem to do mission 46 which is the true ending, but if you want to do mission 45 then take it off, go do a mission and when you go back to ACC sideops 150 should trigger and when you go do it mission 45 starts. And after mission 45 you wont have Quiet as your buddy, so yea if youre okay with that take the emblem off.

      • stocchinet .

        thanks mate 😉

    • kirtanloorii

      According to the strategy guide, you need to either complete one main mission or 3 side ops to advance things like this.

  • Gatsu

    What a cool hat and that character…damn !

    African environment ftw :).

  • I was waiting more for this MGO3, than the single player.
    A pity PC users will play in January 2016. 🙁

    • MGO PC launch date will finally sync with consoles one. So all is on par, relax..

      • Always relaxed, bro.
        Where did you read that? :O

        • Full_Options

          Well, sorry if I am mistaken but somewhere 2 month ago. Can anyone confirm this ?
          PS4 only here…

          • I think you mean when PC/Steam game (main game) was about to get delayed, but finally came sync with consoles.

            PC/Steam users will get MGO3 in January. But i can’t say anything yet, as one month without watching news (to avoid spoilers)

            Thanks, man 🙂

          • Full_Options

            Sh.t, I hoped it was the all the way around. Sorry bro.

          • No problem.

    Guys calm down at least we didn’t buy call of duty for 65 dollars plus dlc every year for the same game.

    • Ishmael

      Oh c’mon! How can you even dare to compare this garbage to an MGS Title!

  • Gert Müller

    Hey guys, I have a question: how many DLC codes came in their collector’s edition?

    Amazon sent me two codes by email, but I could rescue only one on the PSN. However, it doesn’t have the MGO items. Have you been successful in redeem items from the MGO?

    The other code has 14 characters, the format it is invalid for PSN, and I do not know where to use. He will be redeemed inside the MGO?

    Thank you for your help!

    • Yes, the MGO code doesn’t work yet. Not sure about the other one, maybe you need to redeem on Konami CORE?

      • Gert Müller

        Nyxus, MGO code is the same as other items offline? Do you have a collector’s edition and received these codes? Amazon just sent the codes and didn’t say what for. 🙁

        Thank you for your help!

        • These are the codes that came with the CE:

          http://www.metalgearinformer.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/MGSV-TPP-CE-DLC-codes.jpg

          So one is for MGO (it isn’t working yet because the game isn’t out) and the other includes all the DLC that’s supposed to come with the collector’s edition. But for the UK, it seems some of the DLC wasn’t included and has to be sent to you by the store.

          • Gert Müller

            Nyxus, your code has 14 characters? My code has 14 characters and I’m worried about this. The PSN doesn’t accept code with 14 characters. 🙁

            Thank you very much!

          • Both codes have 12 characters.

          • Gert Müller

            Nyxus, I will contact Amazon again to retrieve a correct MGO code.
            Thank you very much!

          • No problem, and good luck!
