Metal Gear Online Now Available on Steam

Metal Gear Solid 5 users on the PC can now download Metal Gear Online on Steam and team up with their buddies for some multiplayer carnage.

The online component has been available for console users since October, with PC users needing to wait nearly three months to join the party. After only being in beta last week, Konami deemed the online portion ready for action.

“The Beta has officially concluded and the game is now available for launch. We took in a lot of feedback and made a few key adjustments. After some initial hiccups we’re going forward guns at the ready. However that doesn’t mean we’ve stopped development, quite the contrary. Just like the previously released console versions of MGO, we’ll be integrating new updates to the game to improve the experience and add content,” it said on Steam.

This means Metal Gear Online will get the same post-launch love as the console versions have received. If you jump online between today and January 26th you’ll receive 3000 Gear Points (GP) for free, not a bad incentive I must say.
