1UP has donned a cardboard box, snuck into Konami's HQ and escaped with news of a second Metal Gear Online expansion, which will be fully playable at next week's Tokyo Game Show.
The Meme Expansion packs three all-new maps. Silo Sunset is a gold-tinted, dog-eared collection of buildings, which apparently recalls the nuclear missile silo level from Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops. Forest Firefight, as the name implies, is a verdant woodland area, and Winter Warehouse transports you to an icy landscape.
In addition, both Liquid Ocelot and Mei Ling have been confirmed as new playable characters.
A release date has yet to be announced.

Nice, I really like MGO, but hardly anyone played the lst expansion. Also, it was quite expensive. I'll wait and see what the price is before I decide to pick it up.

Very true shader it seemed a good expansion but 8 quid is far too much for me considering what you pay in the first place. Also the lack of payment options made it hard for some people to get it if they dont have a credit card.

those packs look really awsome

Didn't mind playing MGO but all the excitement of LBP and other games this month might have to skip it till next year.

I like MGO as well but I've been mucking about with the Socom Beta of late
- 2:24am EDT - October 2nd, 2008
If it's cheaper than previous expansions (Which I doubt unfortunatly) then I'll buy it!!
Bah! That's the only reason I don't have the current expansions, just costs a bit much for a few maps... D:

i wish i could play online MGO would be awesome, i tried at this store gameplayplus that let's you but, konami needs to fix the id and password problem first. will this expansion fix the problem
- 5:19am EDT - October 2nd, 2008
yeah that was my problem. I forgot my password for one of my stupid konami id's and could not buy the expansion.

guys i am puzzled i haven´t gottn any of the expansions yet because of credit card business, but when they say playable characters liquid and mei ling do they mean in MGS4 or MGO(though its hard to imagine that)?
- 5:30am EDT - October 2nd, 2008
I don't like how MGO is not integrated with the PSN & PSstore for DLC and that you have to sign in on Konami's network instead. Thats one of the reasons i don't play it. Hopefully they get it right with the next MG.

Awesome, this is great news for me. I'm a huge fan of Metal Gear Online and can't wait to hear some more information on this new expansion next week.

Im a big MGO fan too and even though I will buy this pack. Its a total bump because there is nothing to download like the GENE expansion it just unlocks something that is already on the disk, no downloading at all and we recieve 3 maps and Meryl n Akiba.
Jus unlock the disk for free Kojima/Konami, we paid for the disk now let us jave all the contents on it.

Will have to check this out, I am currently playing MGO again did not like how socom player control is not being able to reload running or go into prone while running feels way to blocky. Its good to be back MGO

I really wish Konami had gone about the online play better !! If they did I would probably still be playing MGO...but as it stands I haven't touched my MGS4 disc in months (basically since I completed the SP campaign)
