The European BETA of Metal Gerar Online has has been updated. The update includes a new mid-sized map called Midtown Maelstrom.
Also included is a new gameplay mode called "sneaking Mission" in which one player can play as Snake.
To quote: As for the new gameplay mode, we expect the Sneaking Mission to be incredibly popular for the sole reason that Snake is a playable character.
One player takes on his role, complete with OctoCamo, Solid Eye and other handy items (how does he carry so much stuff while sneaking around?). The aim is to move silently around the map trying to collect dog tags by defeating other players.
If more than ten people are playing then another player takes the role of Metal Gear Mk II in order to help out Snake. Meanwhile two teams battle it out as usual.
