Cloaked in Silence DLC Details Released for Metal Gear Online

metal-gear-online-characters-screenshot

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – Feb. 9, 2016 – Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. has announced a new DLC campaign for METAL GEAR ONLINEthe dedicated, squad-based multiplayer component of the best-selling METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN. Entitled ‘Cloaked in Silence’, the new content will be released in March 2016 and adds new maps, a new character and additional content to the multi-player experience.

‘Cloaked in Silence’ is an ongoing part of KONAMI’s commitment to continually enhancing the METAL GEAR ONLINE element. The downloadable content adds three new maps to the multi-player game:

  • Coral Complex: A dedicated Motherbase environment, allowing players to access tall towers, 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, and 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.

METAL GEAR ONLINE’s ‘Cloaked in Silence’ DLC also sees the debut of Quiet as a playable character. A buddy character familiar from METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN, Quiet is 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.

Additional DLC includes APPEAL ACTION features, which trigger a unique character pose known as APPEAL ACTION. Players can preset up to five different slots per character with additional APPEAL ACTION packs available for purchase in-store.

Released in tandem with the DLC, a free update to METAL GEAR ONLINE includes a brand new competitive mission, SABOTAGE. Attackers must destroy or fulton the enemy Missile before the round expires. To access the Missile, attackers must first hack into the Terminals to deactivate the Electromagnetic (EM) Barrier that is protecting it. Once the Terminals are hacked and the EM Barrier is deactivated, defenders can choose to reactivate the EM Barrier or protect the Missile.

Warhammer: The End Times – Vermintide Schluesselschloss DLC Screenshots

Vermintide_Schluesselschloss_1

STOCKHOLM January 28, 2016. Today Fatshark announced what might be one of the easiest to remember DLC titles around – SCHLUESSELSCHLOSS.

In 2015 Fatshark gave the world the catchy new title Warhammer: The End Times – Vermintide. Now Fatshark has decided to add something extra to the game and at the same time introduce what may well be the strangest DLC name ever. SCHLUESSELSCHLOSS is a brand new location for the soon to be released – and totally free – new Vermintide game mode Last Stand.

“The Heroes will face unlimited numbers of Skaven with only one objective in mind – and it’s not to buy the players dinner,” says Fatshark CEO Martin Wahlund. “Last Stand is a new game mode that brings all the rats to the yard in one free level. Hordes of Skaven will try to eliminate the heroes one after the other. How many rounds can you handle?”

The Last Stand DLC will include one free level set in Ubersreik. If you want to venture outside the walls of Ubersreik, pick up the SCHLUESSELSCHLOSS DLC and take it to the woods. Anyone that buys SCHLUESSELSCHLOSS will be able to invite other players that don’t own the DLC to join them against the Skaven hordes.

If you have a hard time remembering SCHLUESSELSCHLOSS, then help Fatshark give SCHLUESSELSCHLOSS a nickname via www.vermintide.com/namenick. The 100 best suggestions will get the map for free.
