I Got Next: The Multiplayer Hook

Metal Gear Online, the competitive multiplayer counterpart to Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, is going live in a matter of weeks. Beyond the obvious concerns about Konami's servers catching fire (again), what will make it a good online game? To help answer that question, GR+'s own David Roberts and Connor Sheridan are looking back at another open-world game with an ambitious multiplayer counterpart: GTA 5.

Join us starting at 3:30 PM ET/12:30 PM PT to watch us consider the question at hand, try out GTA Online's new Freemode Events, and accidentally blow each other up. Mostly the last one.
