The PlayStation Asia site has confirmed Alex Evan’s recent comments that the Metal Gear Solid 4 “Level Pack” and MGS4 costumes are complete and will be on the PlayStation Store ‘soon’. For the Level Pack, it states:
Send Sackboy™ into a covert world of stealth and intrigue with this downloadable collection of Metal Gear™ Solid goodies.
This announcement comes just hours after the PlayStation blog doubly confirmed the release of this weeks Festive “Level Pack”, available tomorrow (confusingly, “Level Packs” don’t actually contain any levels).
Now that we’ve seen the MGS4 costume pics, we can’t help but scream like little girls at just exactly how awesome the costumes actually are…
As announced on the PlayStation Blog yesterday, the new LBP level packs contain all sorts of goodies. They pack a bit more punch.
If the festive pack really does set the standard for future level packs, we can expect to see objects, decorations and materials - all with an MGS4 vibe.
We’re loving those stickers - you can see a Snake sticker, Rex sticker, Ocelot sticker, Melon (duh!) and some retro graphics texture stickers. It is not yet clear if the level pack will contain any costumes (like the festive pack does).
The release date for the Metal Gear Solid 4 Level Pack and costumes are TBC, but with the PlayStation Asia site having all the details already, we suspect they will be available on the PlayStation Store next week, as Christmas Day DLC (now that would make sense, Sony). That’s the answer our giant guess-a-matron reckons anyway.
The MGS4 costumes will be available separately though there will, as normal, be a bundle costume pack:
Here comes the METAL GEAR SOLID® Costume Set for LittleBigPlanet™! Buy it and you can get Snake Costume, Meryl Costume, Mantis Costume and Raiden Costume!
Now that the cat is out of the bag, we are very excited about these level packs here on the Planetoid. Keep an eye out in upcoming months for a Final Fantasy Level Pack (with the infamous Sepiroth costume) and a Killzone Level Pack (with that equally infamous Helghast costume).
More details on global pricing when they’re confirmed in their respective regions.
