Cloaked in Silence DLC – Metal Gear Online
KONAMI have released details about the new ‘Cloaked in Silence’ DLC for Metal Gear Online, the multiplayer component of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
Cloaked in Silence adds three new maps to Metal Gear Online:
Coral Complex: A dedicated Motherbase environment, allowing players to access tall towers and use storage containers and other internal areas as cover for tactical advantage. Coral Complex mixes open areas and a myriad of hiding opportunities.
Rust Palace: Set within Afghanistan, the Rust Palace is a large multi-level building. The skeletal nature of the decrepit ruin means that cover is scarce, while the internal areas are rich in dusty rooms and high-up sniping positions.
Azure Mountain: An outdoor plain under Africa’s baking sky. A small cluster of buildings offers scant cover, with only derelict walls and occasional scrubland surrounding the massive rock known locally as the Cradle of Spirits.
Cloaked in Silence also gives you the option to play as the sniper buddy character Quiet. Alongside being a legendary sniper who can take out distant targets with excellent accuracy, Quiet’s movement speed is extremely fast and allows for unique jumping abilities over high steps where a player would usually need a ladder. She can also temporarily cloak her visibility while sprinting to activate a boost in movement speed.
Another feature of the Cloaked in Silence DLC is the addition of the Appeal Action. This is a character pose that the player can trigger, and there will be additional Appeal Packs offered on the relative stores at the same time that the DLC is released.
A free update will also be released alongside the DLC. This update will add a “Sabotage” game mode, an attack and defend style game mode in which the attackers must destroy or disarm an enemy missile before the round expires. The attackers must first deactivate the Electromagnetic barrier protecting the missile.
The Cloaked in Silence DLC will be released in March 2016 and will be priced €3.99, with the various appeal packs being priced at €1.99.
