Last night(this morning depending on your time zone) Konami dropped their newest expansion for Metal Gear Online
in the form of the version 1.30 patch. Unfortunately for me, I don't have my PS3 with me, but luckily, there was a list of update changes posted on the MGO Website
. One important piece of info I picked out from it was this:
Several fixes have been implemented to prevent cheating by using lag switches. As a result of these fixes, we have restored the "Friendly Fire" option in "Survival" and "Tournament" games. Furthermore, in public "Survival" and "Tournament" matches using RES/TSNE, if you kill or stun more than half of your teammates (including yourself), your team will automatically be disqualified.
Quite a few of the MGO players on GameFAQs.com seem to feel that the latency has been tightened up too, although I won't be able to see for myself until this Friday and the Weekend.
From lurking around the game-faks, I managed to pick some more things up:
-New music tracks include those from MGS2, MGS3, Metal Gear:Ghost Babel, Boktai, Lunar Knights, Policenauts, and Snatcher, and a random option.
-The MK.23(aka. the SOCOM pistol from MGS1) is a beast of a weapon, and RPG is now twice as expensive.
-The ranks(Sloth, Foxhound, ect.) were reset. UPDATE
: No one really knows why.
-There's a ?????? map that has not been released yet.
-Options to change the size of the HUD and interface.
-Codec Pack 2 is available for purchase($5), contains phrases "Spread your wings and fly"(Major Zero, MGS3 Opening Scene), "Watch out for boxes", and "There's a trap!"

So, anyone on Destructoid taken the new update for a spin and have some opinions on it? Is it really that
awesome, or is it all La Le Lu Le Lo?
