Konami has published a new video that provides a look at the upcoming Mother Base map that will be added to Metal Gear Online some time in the future, among other maps. The footage was first shown during Konami’s Twitch stream earlier this week. You can also briefly see the Knife in action.

Konami has asked fans to name the map, you can tweet your suggestions to the official Metal Gear Online account.

    Woah, if you thought the twicth comments under the konami streamings were toxic, youtube ones are just… unbelievable. This is the MGS fanbase?

    • hunner

      The MGS community is terrible lol why are you surprised?

      • Frederick Guese

        Most of the cool people left.

      The Youtube live stream community is just awful in general.
      I’ve never seen a live stream chat on Youtube that wasn’t awful.

    Hey guys.I was on my way to work and suddenly the final cutscene of MGSV came to my mind.I thought about it and I discovered (lol) something interesting and I decided to share it with you guys.
    As you know,Kojima did something new with cutscenes of V.He and his team,took all scenes with one shot.That’s one of few things I really liked about V (unfortunately),But there is one cutscene that is completely different from the others,and that’s the first part of the final cutscene.The cutscene starts from crashed ambulance and continues to the big revelation/motorcycle scene.The interesting thing in this part is this scene cuts multiple times.At first it was weird,but now I think I have an idea about this difference:
    If my memory serves me well,most of the cutscenes heavily involves Venom Snake.We know that Venom Snake is actually us.So my theory is this:We are seeing almost all cutscenes through the eyes of Venom Snake (us),so we see everything un-cut (because we are seeing with our own eyes).But the revelation cutscene doesn’t feature Venom Snake,so we are seeing it as a “Third Person” Perspective (because we are not there).That’s why we have multiple cuts during this scene (I think).
    I hope I written good enough,cause my English is not perfect,lol.What do think,guys?

    • SNKtheStampede

      That’s interesting. I was disappointed though by the presence of a few cuts in other cutscenes. Actually I can’t remember the number I noticed, but the one that stricked my eyes most is the one at the beggining of Metallic Archaea, where, after the first long shot, the camera shifts to the puppet soldier with a cut. The one shot concept was very promising, but I’m afraid the apex of it was achieved in GZ intro. I would have expected more camera movement virtuosity in TPP, but I guess it would have diminished the “through the eye of Venom” effect.

    • What I don’t get about those scenes is that they have different times shown in the first and last mission

      • Venom_Sina

        You mean that time paradox (time traveler Ocelot)?

        • Yup

          • Venom_Sina

            Exactly.That’s one of many questionable parts of V,and unfortunately there’s no explanations for it.

  • MrVux007

    All i want from them is to bring us Grozny Grad map….and ill be like

    • Full Options

      Holly sh.t yes GG map would be so Top…
      I would go

    • Tom Brearley-Smith

      Takes us back to the old days of MGO1, doesn’t it!

      • MrVux007

        Grozny grad was my favorite map both in MGO1 and MGO2…that map had so much tactical variety(from close range to long range gunfights)it wasnt entirely camper friendly which was really cool for players like me…
        and who could forget team sneaking on that map….really good times

    I hate shooting in stairs, the damn obstacles.

  • Mr.Pony

    Just name it “A Hideo Kojima Map”

    • Tom Brearley-Smith

      I’m sure Kojima would approve.

  • they should do a
    Shadow Moses map (import the mgs4 version)
    Big Shell map: (mgs2 geometry still holds up just new textures)
    Grozny Grad (the one from mgo 2 with better lightning will do)
    Outer Haven deck from MGS4
    Mother Base from Peace walker

    and Im surprised that MPO’s Misile Base is missing since every iteration of MG multiplayer after MPO features that map (is in mpo, mgo2 and MPW multiplayer)

    • Dr. Miles Manners

      Oh! I love Sunset Silo! Revisiting it on MGO2 and MGS:PW was really cool!

  • NegaScott128

    OT: So I was playing the 3DS version of MGS3, and I got to the Sorrow “fight.” I’m not sure why this is, but during this sequence, you can access the backpack and use whatever weapon you want. I pulled out the Patriot just for fun, and I tried shooting at some of the ghosts. I found out that they actually react to bullets. If you shoot them, they’ll have this sort of ripple effect (looks like the same one Sorrow uses when he teleports) and scream. It’s not a normal scream – it’s a lot higher-pitched. All the Cobra Unit ghosts have unique animations if you shoot them: Pain loses his hornets and stands there for a second, Fear screams and does a weird jump, and End flips over onto his back/chest, depending on what position he was in. The Sorrow skeleton does nothing, but the ghost will sometimes say something like, “That won’t work.” I forget the exact dialogue. It doesn’t seem like it was added in for the 3DS version – the sound quality is the same as the original sound effects, but all the re-recorded/new dialogue is much lower-quality. Has anyone else tried this? Does anyone know if this is any other version?

    • Raven_Sorrow

      On the ps2 original it happens too. Well, I don’t remember being able to access the backpack but I could shoot the ghosts with the revolver.. Maybe I’m misinterpreting the question.

      • NegaScott128

        Thanks! I was just confused because I couldn’t find anything online about it.

    • Dr. Miles Manners

      I like that version better for some reason. Aside from the 30fps vs. 60fps from the HD collection (which I felt too weird for some reason anyway) I preferred the updated character models and 3D depth (Even if bandanaless Snake looks a little too much like Barry from Game Grumps).

      • NegaScott128

        I can understand that. I like the updated control scheme with the crouch-walking and over-the-shoulder camera. But it definitely has problems. It runs like crap, the textures are blurry, the low-res screen hampers visibility, and the camera is way too close to Snake, especially when crouch-walking or crawling. Plus, the balance mechanic is too touchy, and the Photo Camo option is utterly broken.

  • Robin030

    is there a way to go back to the old site design…pls?

  • WhatTheJuicay

    Name the map? What, Mother Base is not good enough?

  • John Rhogan

    How about naming it Little Base. It looks alot like Big Shell.

  • WrongDirectionZ

    Sorry for being OT but does anybody know a good MG fansite in spanish?? Gracias

    OUCH… BUT YEAH ! DONE !! 😀

    • Venom_Sina

      Nice.I’m on 88%.Will complete the game soon.

        THX Sina ! Animals were a bit tedious and sometimes annoying because the capture cage does not guaranty you get the right species, but really happy to have all V percentages even / well rounded now. xD
        I feel psychologically more stable… :DD

    • Gatsu

      Grats bro :). I might get it sometime this year also :D.
      My PC had a major crash last evening, was scared shitless but I gladly managed to fix it after 4 hours lol. Clean Windows install. And luckily my save games are safe.

      • Full Options

        THX Brotha ! Yeah, keep us tuned so we celebrate again and again !
        Only one thing left for me is my birthday cut-scene (25 March :(… ).
        I could have cheated the date, but preferred to respect the Prophecy !

      • Full Options

        Wow, a little roller coaster sequence for your V’s backups ? 🙁
        Glad they are safe, I would easily imagine to replay it in a soon re-re-re-marathon (need to replay MGS2 HD and MGS 4 before ;D, why not 3 ? because replayed it last august ;D), but would hardly imagine to start over from scratch and reach 100%… xD

        You perhaps could repair the system, but yeah, a fresh install is better since it may also have solved other little problems.
        Now your GEAR behave like a Formula 1 car… 😉

  • Jav

    Are you feeling an fps drop in ps4 since the last update?

    • WrongDirectionZ

      i do. It´s annoying

    • Full Options

      I don’t, is it general or specific to some areas of the game ?
      I noticed the game lags a lot more when online, as usual. Are you online when it happens ?

      • Jav

        The idroid was always slow if you are online. But the gameplay was always good. Now I have fps drops, for example right after I jump from the helicopter. Maybe is when it saves.

    • N-Shifter

      Straight after the install, I visited Mother Base and my helicopter music sounded ever so slightly slower than the track was supposed to be played, I wasn’t imaging it either as I closed the game and went straight back in and all was well again.

  • I see no mini-map… Does that mean we’re finally getting a hardcore mode where players can run and not be scared to be spotted?? 😀

  • PrinceHeir

    This is awesome 🙂
