Metal Gear Solid V Final
Big Boss and his team prepare for a mission in "Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain."

“Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain” was released a couple of months ago, and it’s one of the top titles of this year featuring an expansive world and hours of gameplay. Months after its release, Konami launched the competitive online multiplayer of the game, “Metal Gear Online.” It was also well-received, and it seems Konami is looking to add more content to the game mode with a downloadable content (DLC) in the pipeline.

Even though the primary development team behind “Metal Gear Online,” Kojima Productions LA Studios, officially shut down last month, Konami is still looking to provide support to the online component of the latest “Metal Gear” title. In a tweet by the official “Metal Gear Online” account, it noted that the mode will receive a DLC that contains new maps, a Survival mode and more.

The previous “Metal Gear Online” which was released as a standalone title for previous consoles also featured the Survival mode, but it is not yet known whether or not it will be the same with the current mode.

No other detail was mentioned in the official “Metal Gear Online” Twitter account. Fans have yet to know how much new content there will be in the DLC. Konami has also yet to reveal a release date for it. The confirmation of the DLC solidifies Konami’s announcements months ago that they will not release any story DLCs for “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.”

Meanwhile, Konami also released an update for “Metal Gear Online.” Patch 1.02 makes it easier for players to level up. This is because the amount of XP needed for each level has been reduced.

Aside from that, Konami also did some minor weapon balancing to provide smoother gameplay for the players. One of the weapon changes include a reduction on the shotgun’s knockback range and the drawback of machine guns. The full patch notes can be seen on the official website of Konami Japan.
