'Metal Gear Online' adds a bit of sabotage next month

A playable version of sniper Quiet and three new maps are en route, as well.

Despite what you might think, Metal Gear mastermind Hideo Kojima's unceremonious departure from publisher Konami won't affect how Metal Gear Online plays out. To wit, the company's bolstering the amount of post-release add-ons for the adversarial multiplayer suite next month as part of a "commitment" to the game's fans. A trio of new maps and a playable version of the eye-rollingly-designed sniper Quiet will be available in March for $4 in the "Cloaked in Silence" pack, while a quartet of emote packs will sell for $2 each.

There's also a free game type dubbed "Sabotage" en route that sadly does not involve aviator sunglasses or giant mustaches, but instead has you destroying or fultoning an enemy missile (like the bear above) before time runs out.

Oh, and unlike what Activision is doing to last-gen Call of Duty players, these add-ons will be available across all platforms.

With this, in addition to the "Outer Rim" expansion inbound for Star Wars Battlefront, it looks like March is officially the month of content updates for last fall's big multiplayer games. Or not -- the online-only Tom Clancy's The Division launches next month, too.
