Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence finally has an approximate release date in Europe. While the game originally launched in the US back in March, European gamers will have to wait until sometime in October to get their hands on it. Konami has announced that the game will be released in a three-disc format on the PlayStation 2, with an enhanced version of the original game, the new online multiplayer mode, and a full CGI Metal Gear Solid 3 movie.
The Subsistence edition of Metal Gear Solid 3 notably adds 3D camera control to the original game, while also letting players view individual cutscenes. The second disc will feature the same online mode as the US release, letting up to eight people compete online using the PlayStation 2 Network Adaptor. Players will also be able to tackle the boss fights separately or play through ports of the original Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2 games from the MSX computer system.
The third disc tells the story of Metal Gear Solid 3 via the game's cutscenes, radio dialogue, and gameplay footage. It will also include the full trailer for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's full review.
