Sony releases its revamped PlayStation Store next week, and there’ll be one quite HUGE surprise waiting to be downloaded – a free beta test version of Metal Gear Online.
Not to be confused with the imminent Metal Gear Solid 4, Metal Gear Online is an entirely new and separate game for PS3. It’s online. As you might have guessed. It’s entirely multiplayer. It’s going to get PS3 owners excited and will maybe stop them regretting buying a PS3. And you’re able to test two maps “Blood Bath” and “Groznyi Grad” for free, next week, as a taster for the full game.
Sony’s new look PS Store goes online on April 15 – the Metal Gear Online Premiere Beta will arrive for download on April 17 and it’ll stay up there for your continued free-having until May 6.
