Metal Gear Online getting two free modes this month

6 May 2009

Konami will be parachuting in some freebies for Metal Gear Online later this month in the form of a pair of all-new game modes.

First on the cards is Race Mission, which arrives on May 12. Here, two teams must battle against each other, with the Blues searching for and protecting the KEROTAN target, while the Reds head for the GA-KO target.

According to the Official PlayStation Blog, “Each time a team passes a check point with its target in hand, a new checkpoint will be generated. If a team drops its target and the target is not retrieved within a set period of time, the target’s position will be reset and the checkpoint will change.”

Meanwhile, May 26 sees the release of the Patriot feature, which selects a small group of players at random to receive a specialised 5.56mm Hand Rifle complete with infinite ammunition and no reload. Make the most of it, as you’ll be stripped of the weapon at the next ranking update.
