Metal Gear Online – Race Mission and “Patriot” Details Unveiled

Brandon Laurino's Avatar Posted by Executive Producer, Dust 514

Hello all! The SCENE Expansion pack was recently released for Metal Gear Online, which came with a ton of exciting new features, maps, and of course two new playable characters, Vamp and Raiden. But there’s even more content coming soon! Starting on May 12th 2009, all players, not just those who have purchased SCENE, will be able to play an entirely new game mode, Race Mission! This mode pits two teams against each other, with the Blue Team searching for and protecting the KEROTAN target, and the Red Team searching for and protecting the GA-KO target. Each time a team passes a check point with its target in hand, a new checkpoint will be generated. If a team drops its target and the target is not retrieved within a set period of time, the target’s position will be reset and the checkpoint will change.

Metal Gear Online – Race Mission 3

There will also be an exciting new “Patriot” feature available to all players, starting on May 26th. This feature will select a few lucky players every week starting from the 26th, and give them exclusive access to a 5.56mm Hand Rifle with infinite ammunition and no reload. Players will have access to these unique “Patriot” features until the next ranking update. You’d better watch out when a “Patriot” joins your game!

Metal Gear Online - Patriot of the Week! Metal Gear Online – Patriot

These new features are open to all players, but there’s even more content available in the three MGO Expansion Packs: SCENE, MEME, and GENE. All three are available via Metal Gear Online’s in-game shop and Konami’s shop. Along with all regular methods of payment, you are now able to use the PlayStation Network Wallet payment system.

Stay tuned for updates in the coming weeks, as the one-year anniversary of the launch of Metal Gear Solid 4 approaches, we’ll be revealing even more awesome stuff to celebrate!

Add Your Own

Poster number 89 has a good idea. I would love to boot MGO directly from the xmb rather than having to go through MGS4.

I hope its the Trophy update and PSN support instead of that stupid Konami ID BullS**t.

just as i said. of the 100 posts… basically 95% of them are asking for trophies.

Address this issue Konami.

Either say they are coming or that they will never come. Stop ignoring the number 1 issue and address it. Please. It is interfering with your marketing of any new MGO product

Looks bad ass.

Trophies please :)

Nagash_MalKaVian said:

we need trophies, I already finished the game 6 times. Need more reasons to keep playing and trying new things.

Ti_dus said:

Trophy support please :)

I wouldn’t buy a single bit of DLC for this game unless they add TROPHY support

phinnv8 said:

May 6th, 12:05 am

Oh yea, add TROPHIES too Castlevania: SOTN too Konami

EnterpriseE said:

May 6th, 12:12 am

@89 Yeah me too. I really wish we could load up MGO straight from the XMB instead of loading the entire game first then MGO. They did it for the beta and I am pretty sure they can do it now.

Spathis said:

May 6th, 12:44 am

@83 I guess i am a liar. At the time i posted there was 249 people on instead of 300. That includes matchmaking, training areas and lobbys. I am talking UK server here.

Clap Clap.

Seriously Konami MGO is dying. PSN intergration or no DLC buy.

I was going to comment with something useful but since Konami doesn’t have a single person watching these blog posts, I changed my mind.

mlataupe said:

May 6th, 12:58 am

Yeah… trophies for MGS4 is a must!

Tha community has been waiting for it eversince trophies were announced.

It’s up to you konami but this could actually be a big push for the Platinum/Greatest Hits versions still in retail.

Who cares? Don’t you realize all we are asking for is trophy support?

Konami ID = Utterly Arrogant Fail. Sorry, but I don’t know why you wanted to introduce such a level of segregation from the established norm, of requiring people have a PSN ID.
This must be limiting the amount of people who’ll play your introverted game.

It’s just the wrong side of flaming awkward. You even look at the sign up process (not regarding the horrific situation of that at launch), and you have to create a separate username and password, that will be unlike any other you regularly use, because the stupid system won’t accept anything but the most intricate, and obscure details for you to use for login…For one game! Really?!?

For one game, I’m asked to remember these stupid codes, because of your arrogance, Konami? Hell no, will I play that game – At the end of the day, Why Should I? I feel insulted that you demand these extra measures. I’ve no interest in your game, until such time as you sensibly, integrate it into the regular Playstation community.

Yeah, gotta agree with the other 96% of the posts, get some trophy support going on!

If trophies were supported, I guarantee this game would pick back up considerably.

BigRon3400 said:

Add trophies!

Carl-G said:

May 6th, 3:53 am

Maybe at E3 09′ they will give us Trophies for MGS4? :)
I would like a MGS4:Subsistence? That would be coooooool to :P

zombie9 said:

May 6th, 4:00 am

MGS4 online is still one of the Best and I still enjoy it. Trophy suport is not that big of a deal to me. I would like to have the feature for in game music on the ipod would even be cool. But any way I hope on there one year anniversary they give detail on MGS5. ONLY ON PS3!!!!

astrocrack said:

Trophies ftw

Keebzerz said:

May 6th, 5:12 am

Sony is listening to the people about as much as the morons in Washington. The way they continue to ignore us for trophy support and PSN ID’s for this (and trophies for VALKYRIA CHRONICLES) is shockingly stupid. They seriously have no one but their own dumb @$$es to blame for being in 3rd place this gen.

RRstrong said:

May 6th, 5:32 am

I believe that the trophie support noise is loud and clear, but I realized something…the trophie support was already established in the game (single player mode of course). Getting the trophie support that you can view outside the game would be nice, but as you guys can see, thats not on their priority list concerning all the DLC they managed to dish out. ITS STILL A DAM MASTER PIECE.

RRstrong said:

May 6th, 5:35 am

Oh yeah, finally the payment system is upgraded. I found that other nonsence too confusing (although I forgot what the old way was all about).

TheInfectedBy590 said:

May 6th, 5:38 am

Didn’t Konami state they were working on a trophy patch? Are there any updates on it?

AlphaBravoCandy said:

May 6th, 5:51 am

bought this PAL day-1, cleared it, sold it, re-bought as a Limited Edition NTSC with the Blu-Ray disc, watched that, but can’t bring myself to play the game again without trophy support.

I may NEVER put the game into the machine again without trophy support.

AlphaBravoCandy said:

May 6th, 5:53 am

Bluody Hell, everyone is asking for trophies! why not just do it?? are Konami trying to breed resentment?

Andrefpvs said:

May 6th, 5:53 am


You’re talking about 3rd party games, I don’t think that’s Sony’s fault.

Andrefpvs said:

May 6th, 5:55 am

But yes, Trophies for MGS4 and Valkyria Chronicles would leave me with a grin on my face for about a week. Other than those 2 games I only wanted Trophy support for Eternal Sonata, and my PS3 gaming would be perfect.

I hope I’m not sounding too shallow, it’s such a great feature.

drdre74 said:

May 6th, 5:56 am

stop asking for trophies please! Its been almost a year and if they havent done it yet they are going to do it. So get over it already. Yeah I suck bad enough at this game to have to worry about a Patriot who is pretty much unstoppable with no reloads well unless I’m the Patriot then thats something else. Then again I’ve never been able to go past level 3 online so yeah i suck and i put alot of time into the game.

AEREC said:

If they implemented trophies and integrated MGo with the PSN and got rid of the konami ID system then I would definatly get back into MGO…as of now though it’s just way too much hassle to play it.

Also the single player needs trophies badly.

MGSTigerFox said:

Metal Gear Solid 4 is a PlayStation 3 Exclusive, which has been in the works for a long, long time, and at almost a year after its release, there is still no trophy support for the game.

I haven’t played Metal Gear Solid 4, or Metal Gear Online, since last fall. If trophies were made available for the game, I would be playing it non-stop. The only other update that would be of an excellent benefit would be the creation of an icon for the XMB to immediately access the Metal Gear Online program off of the MGS4 Blu Ray disc. A hotlink, so to speak.

Please Konami, we can deal with having to have a Konami ID and play off of the PlayStation Network, but please, at least provide us some challenging trophies! Thanks!

Trophies to celebrate MGS4 anniversary launch please!!!!

AEREC said:

May 6th, 6:57 am

So…patriot = cheater? Why not give them an aim bot and wall hack as well?

NarcMonkey said:

May 6th, 7:07 am

Oh Boy, not liking the patriot thing… hope this gun isn’t available in survival. You may as well say, “If a patriot enters your game, its time to abort…” Because that’s what the cowards who are afraid to lose their levels are going to do.

GibbShift said:

May 6th, 7:07 am


I don’t sign autographs, so stop humping my leg.

The whole thing about this issue is that once trophy support comes, these crybabies will automatically find something else to BAWWWW over.

I’d bet $100 that lag would be the next issue if trophy support gets patched in.

Truth of the matter is that Konami can’t satisfy this immature crowd begging for trophies. They’re only here to complain, hence the reason why you see no replies in this thread.

gus_xl said:

May 6th, 7:22 am

I play MGO all the time, and frankly, I don’t care if it ever gets trophies.

Although, the gun that doesn’t need reloading worries me a little. It won’t stop me from playing though.

Incubuster said:

More Metal Gear, please!

Sneeches said:

May 6th, 7:26 am

@16 = Couldn’t agree more dude. And to all the dev’s if your reading this.. every second or third post is asking for trophies… C’mon already…you can build new modes but can’t take 15 min to code in trophies? WTF!!!!

Utmost-Nutszo said:

May 6th, 7:41 am

I’m adding my voice for trophy support.

adriano999 said:

May 6th, 8:06 am

we want trophies!

MeltTech said:

May 6th, 8:14 am

As amazed as I was with MGS4, this being my first MGS game. I would love to pick it up again to play, but have no reason what so ever. Since the game has no replay appeal without trophies.

Come on Konami, we all praise the game. Reward us with trophies.

acerazer1 said:

May 6th, 8:27 am

Trophies trophies trophies trophies trophies. Trophies, trophies.

There, I’ve pretty summed up what all the comments have had to say up to this point. Glad you’re all caught up now.

Keebzerz said:

May 6th, 8:33 am

They deleted my comment! Only in Washington will you see those in power ignoring the people more than Sony and Konami are ignoring the cries of MGS fans here. Sony, you have no one but yourselves to blame for being in 3rd place this gen.

lenigod said:

May 6th, 9:54 am

when are they going to put the expansions on playstation network. I have said over and over again, i would buy them if i could on the playstation network. it’s probably the dumbest thing konami has done with metal gear since porting the first one to the nes.

angelcoma said:

May 6th, 10:21 am

I wish Metal Gear Online worked, everytime I install and update it (and then 50 hours later lol) when i go to launch it, it just crashes my PS3.

:/ I really wanted to try it.

BigPoppaB said:

May 6th, 10:31 am

They are clearly still working on this game.

They clearly know the #1 thing fans want is trophy support.

Why the EFF don’t they at least address this issue. It is an insult to the team that works on all the MGO DLC as their work is basically ignored by fans, and with good reason.

Come on Kojima productions.
