Check out Metal Gear Online's Survival Mode, launching next week

DLC owners can play it as much as they want

Konami showed off Metal Gear Online's Survival Mode, which the company announced will launch April 7. The teaser above offers fans of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain's multiplayer component a look at the new matchmaking mode, which will arrive as part of update 1.11.

First revealed in February, Survival will allow teams of six to compete against each other in a series of matches. Teams that manage five wins or more in a row will earn special rewards, according to the game's blog.

While all players will have access to Survival, those who picked up the recent Cloaked in Silence expansion pack will be able to delve into it without limitations. Other Metal Gear Online fans will only be able to play 10 matches per week. The free update will also offer maps previously exclusive to downloadable content owners to all players, however.

A Survival mode was included in Metal Gear Online on PlayStation 3. A starter pack for that game came bundled with Metal Gear Sold 4: Guns of the Patriots stateside; its servers shut down in 2012.

The revamped Metal Gear Online launched on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One back in the fall; Steam users gained access to the campaign earlier this year. The Cloaked in Silence pack arrived earlier this month, bringing new maps and Quiet as a playable character, among other additions.
