On Twitter, Konami has shared some new details on Metal Gear Online’s first expansion, Cloaked in Silence, releasing next week on March 15th.
Hello everyone, we’re a week away from the release of the new MGO DLC EXPANSION ‘CLOAKED IN SILENCE’! and have a few more clarifications.
The new unique character Quiet has powerful abilities and stats compared to other players, but while she can fulton, her CQC is limited. Quiet is unable to hold, choke, interrogate, CQC hold to kill etc. Every CQC action results in a kick attack that can possibly stun.
Also Quiet is exclusively available to those who purchase the CLOAKED IN SILENCE DLC. On Automatch, Created/Selected matches, those without the DLC will not play as or against Quiet, nor can they join matches with her included. So if you’re looking to challenge yourself or others as/against Quiet the expert sniper assassin, be sure to purchase CLOAKED IN SILENCE.
The new DLC maps, Coral Complex, Rust Palace, and Azure Mountain are also available only to those who purchase CLOAKED IN SILENCE. Players will not be able to join a match using these new maps unless they’ve purchased the DLC, even if they are in a party with DLC owners.
DLC purchasers have exclusive use of the new maps, up until April 7th, where any MGO player can try the maps in the upcoming SURVIVAL mode. Through SURVIVAL players who have not yet purchased the DLC can join their friends and experience the same new content on a limited basis. This way, early adopters benefit from early exclusivity, while everyone gets an opportunity to try before they buy on brand new content. Likewise, the entire community will immediately benefit from changes and additions in the March update, including the new mission: Sabotage.
The DLC will cost €/$ 3.99, with additional Appeal Action available for purchase separately.
