Konami has announced that Metal Gear Online has finally launched on PC, allowing all those that own a copy of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain to download and play the game's online component.
A beta was made available last week, which unfortunatelly was taken offline less than 24h after it went live, leaving many to speculate the reasons behind this decision. In the end, it all went well and Metal Gear Online is now live, with Konami promising that 2016 is going to be "an exciting year" for Metal Gear Online.
"The Beta has officially concluded and the game is now available for launch," said Robert Peeler, Kojima Productions LA community manager. "We took in a lot of feedback and made a few key adjustments. After some initial hiccups we're going forward guns at the ready. However that doesn't mean we've stopped development, quite the contrary. Just like the previously released console versions of MGO, we'll be integrating new updates to the game to improve the experience and add content.
"We're excited to see a brand new burgeoning pvp community on PC with Metal Gear Online. It's likewise thrilling to add another community of players to our upcoming MGO DLC and update plans. 2016 is shaping up to be an exciting year for MGO, and with your continued support we'll take it even further!"
Players that complete at least one match until the 26th of January will be rewarded with 3000 Gear Points (GP).
