Those of you excited for a little teaser into the online world of Metal Gear Solid 4 have finally been given it. We realize that that is pretty much everyone, so that makes this even sweeter. Konami has released on their Japanese website, a screenshot of 5 different maps that will be appearing in the Metal Gear Solid 4 Online starter pack.
A corner of a war-shattered town littered with obstacles, its central intersection branching off into side streets.
The now abandoned weapons factory that housed the Shagohod in Metal Gear Solid 3. Contains open areas offering unobstructed views as well as indoor and rooftop locations.
This Middle Eastern battleground features avenues crisscrossed with alleyways.
Negotiate buildings of varying height in this city under siege.
A kill house consisting of both surface and underground areas.
As you can see, the majority of these maps look prime for close-quarters combat and will result in a lot of lives being taken and blood being shed. The detail and texture work appears to be promising as well. It's safe to say there will be more maps implemented after release, which means we can obviously expect more than just these five. Fortunately, these 5 look like they'll tide us over for a decent about of time.
Konami has also let it be known that expansion packs that will carry extra maps, characters, and other features will actually be released periodically. The date lineup for these releases will be announced at a later date, but you can expect one to say the least.
We'll keep you up to date as more comes into play.

Wow they beefed up the GFX on Gronznyj Grad big time!

I've seen a leaked video of the top stage. Close-quarters combat indeed! Also roh_sik in the video it seemed to be right on par with COD4 also adding on the fly weapon adjustments during a match. Better then only being limited to the pre-made classes you put together but are only able to change in the lobby. I can't wait for this.

If you take the already high value of metal gear solid 4 with a great story, long campaign, and lots of replayablility, and then throw in metal gear online with it, you could be playing metal gear for months.

Am I the only one that noticed half of these maps are on the MGS3 online? They are just better looking and slightly bigger now. I'm not complaining, just saying. :)
