Metal Gear Online PC Beta Goes Live Today!

Good news, Metal Gear Online PC beta launched today at exactly 10PM Pacific Time; read up on the details inside.

We reported to you a couple of days ago that although the developers were totally silent about it for a while, Metal Gear Online for PC was still alive and kicking although has been a pretty long wait as the game was promised to go live alongside the release of Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain, just like the console versions.

However, the developers have confirmed we are finally going to get our hands on the free multiplayer game on PCs, the beta version at least.

One of the first lines that the announcement from the developers read “a strong man doesn’t need to read the future. He simply needs to wait for MGO on PC.” That alone shows they feel me, but the developers making fun of their own delays, that is something new.

Anyhow, the post goes on to confirm that today i.e. January 12 you will be able to download the PC beta of the game at 10PM Pacific Time.

Since the delay announcement last year, MGO fans have been waiting patiently for the latest update for their favorite online multiplayer to arrive on their favorite platform, the indomitable PC! That day is nearly here, as recently announced via the Konami Twitch Channel, players can opt in and download the Beta release of Metal Gear Online.

While they have announced 10PM to be the time when the PC beta launches, they have also added a cautionary note saying that the exact launch might or might not slip by an hour or two because they will be implementing the updates side by side.
