Konami has announced the launch of dedicated online leagues for Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence
. The leagues will offer fans the opportunity to play in officially sanctioned events with Konami prizes up for grabs.
The leagues and tournaments will be hosted by French company Games-Services. Gamers will get to see how they rank up on a leaderboard along with gamers from all PAL territories.
The official bumph states:
The new tournament has been designed to maximize Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence's stunning online modes. Marking the first time a Metal Gear title has enjoyed online capabilities, the game features Death Match, Team Death Match, alongside Capture, Rescue and Sneaking Missions, each with their own set of goals. Up to eight players can play online at once, with the tournaments giving players a chance to talk to like-minded fans via the game's 'Voice Chat' system. Registered players can also get in contact with other players via the site's forums, allowing for the exchange of tips and tactics within a friendly environment.
Konami seems determined not to let us Europeans forget about Metal Gear Solid
at the moment. It was also recently announced that additional content
will be available for Europeans in (the late to reach us) Portable Ops
The site is available in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian languages. To find out more, head over to http://www.mgs3league.com
