Four players over Xbox LIVE and PSN.
The HD remake of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will allow four players to team up over Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network. The PSP original required players to access online co-op via a PS3.
Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima revealed the online cooperative play news this morning through a Tweet and attached image.
4 people can co-op and it is 60 frames, confirmed the Tweet. During loading, characters’ dialogues pop up at random.
Split-screen co-op hasn’t been confirmed.
MGS Peace Walker will be released as part of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, which also includes HD versions of Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3. Ultimate fans could opt for the Ultimate HD Collection which adds both Metal Gear Solid 1 and Metal Gear Solid 4 for the sum of 70 – could because the Zavvi exclusive is now sold out.
The collection will be released in November.
