Metal Gear Online Gets New Mode, Match Option

A new patch update for the online component of Kojima Productions' Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PS3) is now available, offering a new gameplay mode and match option for Metal Gear Online players. nope

According to Ars Technica, the new "Team Sneaking" mode tasks one of two teams with using stealth to infiltrate the enemy team's base and destroy a key target. The mode makes use of many conventions from the game's single-player mode, such as a caution phase which springs up once a member of the stealth team is spotted.

The update also incorporates a new "Headshots Only" host option, which penalizes players for killing targets by any means except a direct headshot.

The patch is available now, and will be automatically downloaded upon starting up Metal Gear Online.
