Metal Gear Solid V has 'vast' multiplayer mode

Creator Hideo Kojima says Metal Gear Online planned for upcoming open-world action game; will be developed collaboratively at Los Angeles studio.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will include a "vast" multiplayer mode, creator Hideo Kojima has confirmed in a new interview with CVG. He explained that this new mode will be developed by Kojima Productions' recently established Los Angeles studio in collaboration with the company's main outfit in Japan.

"Yes, we plan on creating Metal Gear Online," Kojima said. "Multiplayer right now is being created at our LA studio as well as us. We're working closely to create a vast multiplayer for all the fans."

No further information about the open-world game's multiplayer mode was divulged.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is currently in development for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. It will feature real-time weather, new stealth options, various modes of transportation (tanks, horses, cars), and is said to offer "unparalleled strategic freedom."

Kojima also recently revealed that the final version of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will look better than the trailer shown off during Microsoft's E3 briefing on Monday.

I would keep both types of MP the new one they are developing (free roam) and the one from MGS4 that would make a lethal MP experiance

Alot of you guys posting must not have played MGS4s multiplayer. If you have you would want that back not some GTA4 free roam. People already say this game is copying that game and asassins creed.

Awesome, I just hope it doesn't dumb down singleplayer in any way at all.

A multiplayer similar to GTA4 would be great, I mean using the open-world thing with friends too is awesome.

Multiplayer is welcome as long as it doesn't detract at all from what this game is all about, single player.

Make a CoD move towards a strong MP focus, adding a tacked on SP imitation and this one goes to my "never buy"  list.  

MP can be a blessing and a curse, it can make a game better or simply ruin it.

I think hayter's voice was too exaggerated, right now it seems more realistic whit keifer sutherland

Free roam for this game plus the added bonus of the stealth (as always) makes it a really amazing game.  So far I cannot wait for this game to come out. Once again i do believe that Kojima has set the bar.  Once MGS5 comes out hopefully itll be better than the trailer seems to be.  So far I'm really excited and anticipating it to be one of the best.

It would be really cool if the multi-player involved a free-roam of the whole open world and you would end up running in to other players in the world and either choose to try and kill them or team up and ambush somebody for evil purposes or something.

would be awesome if it tied into the campaign. Like how as big boos you're the leader of a private militia so the Multiplayer is you and a few of your militia soldiers doing an infiltration mission in order to secure supplies for "Mother Base" ala Peace Walker. And by doing online matches it helps you build up "Mother Base" in the Campaign.  Now THAT would be awesome. I'd much prefer that to a competative MP

So what are "ground Zeros" and "the phantom pain" two separate games or the one game?

I am looking forward to seeing what they can do with MP on the next gen consoles, It looks like games are heading away from the Tact on team death match MP modes and going for more of a blend of SP and MP in there open worlds.

Guys you're freaking me out when you didn't include PC among the consoles the game will be released on..."Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is currently in development for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4"

Hayter is upset. You can tell by his recent tweets, and I don't even blame the guy. Kojima didn't even tell Hayter that he wouldn't be playing snake. Hayter found out he wasn't playing snake the same way we all did.

I still can't get over why that lady, who's supposedly a soldier, is wearing a mini-bikini. Yeah I know it's hot, but really??

I'm still suspicious as to whether this game is coming out for current gen, or if Kojima is trolling us.

did MGS really need a multiplayer mode, I honestly don't think so, MG has been a solo game since 1987, even in some parts of the game you would be literary alone since coms where blocked and you could not contact for help. Well guess since it's coming to Xbox for the first time ever  they probably decided it was time to give it an online mode.

I sorta wasted quite a bit of money on MGO only to find out that it's not supported. Really? All it needed was bug fixing and balancing. That's it.

"Vast" is PR language for "terrible".

MGO was the most generic poorly done piece of crap I have ever played. You could use CQC to incapacitate a player for the entire 10 minute match. The gunplay was generic, and the boxes never fooled anyone.

I have faith in Kojima as should all his fans. Everything Metal Gear related he's given us has been absolutely astounding. All I really wanna hear now from Kojima Productions is a release date so I can know when to unfreeze myself.

Alright, so Quiet (the girl sniper) isn't hot at all. Yet, I really want to do her for some reason.

I wonder how open world can cope with MGS style. Somehow all games have had certain freedom, yet open world a-la-GTA is another thing. Still, Kojima is a genius so let's hope he makes it right again

So happy to hear this is coming out for PS3. I wasn't sure and seeing as I've only just got a PS3 I don't plan on getting the PS4 for a while.
