Metal Gear Solid 5's Multiplayer Won't Be Available at Launch
Players hoping to try Metal Gear Online will have to wait a bit for the release of the multiplayer mode.
Fans who are hoping to play competitive multiplayer in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will have to wait a few weeks after the game's launch. Developer Konami today announced that Metal Gear Online, MGS V's multiplayer mode, will be released on October 6 on consoles and sometime in January 2016 on PC.
Although it's unclear why the multiplayer mode is coming after the release of the base game, Konami suggested in a press release that Metal Gear Online on PC was delayed because the release date of the PC version of MGS V was moved up. In the same release, the studio announced that the PC version of MGS V would launch on September 1, the same day as the console versions. Previously, it was planned for a September 15 release.

Metal Gear Online's delay is similar to what happened with the 2013 release of Grand Theft Auto V. It took two weeks after the game's launch before GTA Online was available for players.
Konami also revealed today that players on Steam will get several bonuses. If you preorder the game on PC, you'll receive the game's prologue, Ground Zeroes, for free. All players on Steam will get a documentary, behind-the-scenes footage, and some in-game items.
