Metal Gear Online, the multiplayer spin-off of the Metal Gear Series, will come bundled with Metal Gear Solid 4, according to Famitsu.
The online game lets 16 players enter an online battlefield and battle using all the stealth tactics of Snake's single-player missions to outwit opponents.
Kojima Productions said Metal Gear Online is "the ultimate online companion to MGS4," although Konami is yet to put a price on the package, or if we'll see the bundle on this side of the planet.
New details on some of the new characters in the game were also revealed. You'll apparently meet a female named Sunny, who "escaped the grasp of the Patriots," and the weapon laundering skills of a bloke called Trevin will be of use when Snake needs to erase IDs from weapons before further use.
