Metal Gear Online Player Count is up to 16 on PS4, 12 on PS3

As spotted by Videogamer, the Japanese Metal Gear Solid website reveals that Metal Gear Online will support up to 16 players on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, while the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions will go up to 12 players.

In other Metal Gear Online news, earlier this month the Twitter account said there are “no planned Trophies/achievements for MGO,” which means that you won’t have to worry about playing through the online portion of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain to unlock the Platinum Trophy.

The Metal Gear Online Twtter account also discussed their relationship with the developers in Japan:

Our Creative Director and Producer are both developers of MGO2; they work primarily with the team in our Japan office. Creative director [Kotaro Oki] visits our office as often as possible and works with us through long-stretches of development time. Additionally, when he’s away we have multiple weekly discussions both in teleconference and email. In summary, we work closely with the Japan team on a regular basis, about as much as we do with the team not in Japan.

Metal Gear Online launches on September 1 within Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
