OPM reveals new MGS4 details

mgs4Despite the crushing news that Metal Gear Solid 4 has been delayed till Q2 2008, try to keep your head up because the Official PlayStation Magazine has some juicy new MGS4 details.

Have you noticed the lack of radar while in-game? Instead, there’s a little threat gauge, which is represented by a ring that hovers around Snake’s waist. The ring will peak when there are potential sources of danger around, so keep an eye on it.

In the article, they note that game director Hideo Kojima prefers to go the silent route, hence the need for the threat gauge. Assistant Producer Ryan Payton said:

"Kojima likes games with waves. We have quiet, then climactic battles. You start in the Middle East and enter a huge battlefield to kill a boss. Then it goes quiet. You go to South America and other places, but that ‘wave formation’ continues throughout."

Next up is the cast revelation. While old characters such as Meryl Silverburg, Otacon and Johnny Sasaki will be back in MGS4, some new allies will be with Snake; including the duo of Ed and Jonathan.

As for the enemies, we have the infamous Beauty and the Beast Unit, which is comprised of women now turned into monsters: Screaming Mantis, Laughing Octopus, Raging Raven and Crying Wolf. From the looks of them, you don’t want to mess with these ladies.

Lastly, some of the weapons featured in the game were revealed:

1. M4SOPMOD Carbine
2. Sleep Gas Mine
3. M14EBR Sniper Rifle
4. M64E Heavy Machine Gun
5. Springfield Operator Hand Gun
6. Stun Knife
7. Javeline Missile
