The third expansion to Metal Gear Online, titled the SCENE Expansion, will be released on March 17, 2009 for $9.99. If you don't already own the two previous expansions, you can pick up two different bundles:
- SCENE and MEME: $14.99
- SCENE, MEME, and GENE: $17.99
Pre-orders will begin on March 10 and customers that purchase early will snag a "special 'cardboard man' head gear" as a bonus. The pack will also include "new maps" and skills.

The expansion adds Raiden and Vamp as playable characters. Both will be able to throw knives which can score headshots. Raiden will also get his high frequency blade and Vamp will respawn wherever he is killed (as he is "immortal").
Additionally, Raiden's VISOR will reveal traps when lowered and both characters can jump higher than regular players. On that note, they can also drop great distances without taking fall damage.
All Metal Gear Online players will get access to a new gametype that will be available when the SCENE Expansion launches.
Solo Capture mode is a variation on Capture. It is a free-for-all gametype that places a single Kerotan on the map. The player that holds the Kerotan long enough to reduce their timer to zero, wins. Kills against non-Kerotan carriers will increase that player's timer.
I'm totally going to pick up this pack as I love Metal Gear Online. Sadly, the community seems to be stagnant. Join me and let's keep the dream alive!
