That Metal Gear Online trailer is still so dang good

Steven covered this well-edited footage of Metal Gear Online in December, but here it is again with commentary by online community manager Robert Peeler. Yep, that's good enough for me. The balloon-firing trap shown at 1:54 is the stuff of dreams. Same goes for the enchanting plush puppy. (At one point it was going to be a "real" dog, but the designers didn't want us to shoot that.)

Metal Gear Solid V launch details confirmed, Collector's Edition unveiled photo
Metal Gear Solid V launch details confirmed, Collector's Edition unveiled
by Chris Carter

After a leak involving the release date for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Konami has confirmed the date this morning -- September 1, 2015 (September 15 for Steam), with a few other details in tow.

Metal Gear Online is name-dropped in particular, which will go live the day of Phantom Pain's launch and is included in the base package. It will feature a "class system" and characters like Ocelot and Snake will make an apperance. Mother Base mode is also reconfirmed, with the ability to play online and raid other bases to steal items.

There will be a "Day 1 Edition" of the game and a Collector's Edition, which are priced at $59.99 on PS4 and Xbox One ($49.99 on Steam, PS3, and Xbox 360) and $99.99 respectively. The former will come with a physical map and a selection of DLC items.

The Collector's Edition will only be available for the PS4 and Xbox One, and will come with a half-scale replica of Snake's Bionic Arm, a collectible SteelBook, a behind the scenes Blu-Ray, the map, and a special box. It'll also ship with more DLC.

Catch the full version breakdown below. Thank God, all of the DLC so far seems to be cosmetic.

Geoff Keighley says Metal Gear Rising 2 rumor 'is not true'

Notorious videogame journalizer and all around nice fella Geoff Keighley just tweeted a tweet that's sure to put a frown on the face of many Metal Gear fans. Keighley has reportedly spoken to Ken Imaizumi of Kojima Production...

Metal Gear Rising 2 might be a thing that's happening

This image appeared for a split second in a Sony sizzle reel aired during a Twitch broadcast out of the Taipei Game Show. Sure does look like the typeface from Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Nothing is confirmed, of cou...

Already done everything in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes? Try rolling everywhere

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is a short game. After you have a good feel for what you're doing, you can run it over and over, experimenting all the way. Eventually, you'll know it like the back of your hand (assumi...

Metal Gear modders put Ground Zeroes in first-person

Almost disappointed I have Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes on PS4, where it was recently like $6, rather than on PC, where people have been modding all sorts of zany crap into it. The above first-person mod is low on ...

Modders are having so much fun with Ground Zeroes

At this rate, I'll wind up double dipping with the PC version of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. We covered the mod that lets you play as designer Hideo Kojima, and the one that replaces birds with humans, but here are a few more I came across this morning that demanded to be shared. First up, Metal Gear Chico.

PC Port Report: Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

It's hard to know what a PC port of a Metal Gear Solid game will look like in 2014. Revengeance had a decent port, but that was done by Platinum. The last Metal Gear game to hit our Home Computers was over a de...

As much as wish it weren't true, it is: I've never completed a Metal Gear Solid until now. This is a series plenty of you adore playing, thinking, and talking about and that affection has rubbed off on me over the years. It's...

Metal Gear Online has Fulton sentries, puppy plushies  photo
Metal Gear Online has Fulton sentries, puppy plushies
by Steven Hansen

I thought Metal Gear Online was neat on PS3 outside of Konami's separate log-in system. At the Game Awards, Hideo Kojima introduced a trailer for the online aspect of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Metal Gear Online.

And it looks sweet as heck, just like Phantom Pain. A cute puppy plush has replaced MGSIV's nudie mag distraction trap, there's a mini, personal bipedal robot with a gun, Quiet-like stealth abilities, some sort of teleportation, and a sentry that shoots people with Fulton balloons, which you can shoot and pop before they send your teammate flying in the air. 

Tons of cool-looking, idiosyncratic mechanics. I am so excited for Metal Gear Solid V.

Oh, and that selfie at the end.
