“Many years ago now Metal Gear Online 2 was taken from us. The game was a glorious beacon of hope in what has become a bland and bleak land of similar playing multi-player games.Metal Gear Online 2 offered something unique and fun.It was overall one of the best multiplayer games I have ever played, but due to Konamis cruelty it was taken from us.
But not all hope was lost. The awesome team at MGO2R have brought it back. While they have had it running on CFW for a while now, this time. It is for everyone. The new update which is aimed at an April release will bring the game to all Un-modded PlayStation 3s.”- Previous article
Ok, they missed April. But that is ok! They got it out! The shocking part is, that within hours of being released, over 500 people were on the game at once. That is impressive for a game that has been gone for so long. Now if only Konami understood how much the fans love these games.
There are currently over 500 people on right now! Hope you guys enjoy and stick around! pic.twitter.com/FJhcfr2rGU
