MGO beta: New map and Sneaking mode

UK players lucky enough to have actually got the Metal Gear Online beta working will find new content awaiting them today.

An update for the European beta has added a new map, Midtown Maelstrom, and a new mode of play, Sneaking Mission.

Midtown Maelstrom is, as you'd expect, another murky urban environment with abandoned apartment blocks and sandbag bunkers in the streets providing cover for shootouts.

Stealth Mission, the mode long-time fans may remember from MGS: Subsistence, has one player controlling Snake and trying to collect the dog tags from the other players on the field.

It's a game of hide and seek, as Snake wears a camo suit making it tough for the other players to spot him.

The MGO beta runs until May 11, a week longer than the original May 5 cut-off, due to earlier teething problems.
