Konami said today that the Metal Gear Online Gene Expansion will be available to download from July 17 for €9.99.
“The download adds a number of key features to the basic game, including new three new maps,” said the release. “‘Coppertown Conflict’ boasts wide, open streets, ‘Tomb of Tubes’ is a labyrinth of underground passages, while ‘Virtuous Vista is a sprawling outdoor locale, and ideally suited to medium and long-range combat techniques.”
It continues: “A new ‘Survival’ mode has also been added, wherein players are charged with staying alive for as long as possible within a series of increasingly challenging stages, while a Reward Shop has been added wherein accrued points can be traded for new gear.
“The new add-on also added Metal Gear Solid 4 heroes Meryl and Johnny to the list of playable characters, both of whom enjoy unique skills, and will be randomly allocated to players when their use is enabled. Finally, Kojima Productions has also added the ability to create female soldiers for those creating new characters.”
Full thing after the break.

It seems likely that Konami will block people with non-Japanese IP addresses from playing the Metal Gear Online beta, scheduled to start on April 17.
According to this guide, Konami has already blocked outsiders from accessing the Konami ID registration site (try it yourself), so it doesn’t take a huge leap of logic to surmise that the firm will block those of you outside Japan who’ve already obtained IDs from actually participating.
Eight days to go until we find out.
