No Comment 50 Views

Just when you thought they were done with the Holiday surprises (Free Santa, Festive Level Pack, LBC1 winners, etc, etc) Sony has one more announcement up their sleeve. Metal Gear Solid packs will be available 12/23 on the PlayStation Store.

 

You’ve seen Solid Snake, but have you seen the rest of the cast? (well, ok…maybe you have… ) Meryl Silverburgh, Screaming Mantis & Raiden each have their own costumes from the MGS world. Get all 4 characters for the price of 3 at $5.99 on the PS Store, or pick your favorite and buy it individually for $1.99.You will get a new Sackboy costume the Gurlokovich Soldier. Plus tons of new stickers (72), materials (12), decorations (10), and objects (18). The new Premium Level Packs include new Story Levels and they’re filled these new objects. That’s because,Media Molecule teamed with Konami to create 5 new Story Levels and 1 new Challenge Level for you to enjoy.

They have added music, new sound effects, and new elements to provide a true MGS experience. So you’re getting these in the Level Pack, as well:

  • 3 new background music tracks
  • 1 new interactive music track
  • 1 new Metal Gear Solid themed ‘sound object’
  • New Plasma Ball ‘danger element’
  • New Laser Sight ‘gadget’
  • New functioning Searchlight lamp – for those special ‘exclamation mark’ moments

      …and finally, the piece de resistance…THE PAINTINATOR (and Paint Switch)

Not only will you be able to run, jump, push, pull, swing, etc, etc in LBP, but now you’ll be able to splatter anything that comes between you and the end of any level. Once you equip the Paintinator, you can send sacksized paintballs flying by mashing on the R1 button and using the right stick to aim. Few things about flying paintballs, when Sackboys are hit with them, it feels like a very weak slap. You can also shoot ‘Brains’ from a safe distance and progress thru levels much easier. In addition to the Paintinator, we’re introducing a Paint Switch, so you can attach it to any object and set it to destruct after being splattered with enough paint. Here’s a video to show you the Metal Gear Solid Level Pack in action. There are also 12 new Trophies to unlock.

You know LBP is all about PLAY, CREATE & SHARE, this Level Pack holds true to that. For those who buy the Premium Level Pack, you get everything above (and hopefully a lot of fun in-between). If you don’t buy it, you’ll still be able to enjoy the MGS pack goodness. Here’s how:

  • Non-MGS Level Pack owners can PLAY the MGS Story Levels by joining a “host” who owns the pack and play the levels online together. Now you won’t be able to keep any objects, but you can have tons of fun just PLAYing.
  • MGS Level Pack owners will be able to CREATE levels with any of these items (including the Paintinator) and SHARE them online for everyone to play.
