Konami has posted more details about the Cloaked in Silence DLC pack that will be available in Metal Gear Solid V’s online mode. They revealed more specific details on the abilities of Quiet and how to play as her.
The Metal Gear Online Twitter page posted a series of tweets. The first part was about specific details on Quiet.
“Hello everyone, we’re a week away from the release of the new MGO DLC EXPANSION ‘CLOAKED IN SILENCE’! and have a few more clarifications.
The new unique character Quiet has powerful abilities and stats compared to other players, but while she can fulton, her CQC is limited. Quiet is unable to hold, choke, interrogate, CQC hold to kill etc. Every CQC action results in a kick attack that can possibly stun. Also Quiet is exclusively available to those who purchase the CLOAKED IN SILENCE DLC.
On Automatch, Created/Selected matches, those without the DLC will not play as or against Quiet, nor can they join matches with her included. So if you’re looking to challenge yourself or others as/against Quiet the expert sniper assassin, be sure to purchase CLOAKED IN SILENCE.”
Konami then explained in more detail about the new maps in the game. Some of the new maps will be locked if you do not pay for the DLC.
The new DLC maps, Coral Complex, Rust Palace, and Azure Mountain are also available only to those who purchase CLOAKED IN SILENCE.
Players will not be able to join a match using these new maps unless they’ve purchased the DLC, even if they are in a party with DLC owners.
DLC purchasers have exclusive use of the new maps, up until April 7th, where any MGO player can try the maps in the upcoming SURVIVAL mode.
Through SURVIVAL players who have not yet purchased the DLC can join their friends and experience the same new content on a limited basis”
The Cloaked in Silence DLC pack will be available to purchase on March 15th, 2016. It will be useable only for the online portion of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
