While Konami took down the servers (and discontinued) Metal Gear Online 2, this online mode from Metal Gear Solid 4 is once again playable. However, Playstation owners will not be able to enjoy it. Instead, only PC gamers can experience Metal Gear Online 2 via the Playstation 3 emulator, RPCS3.
All you have to do is basically use the latest version of RPCS3 and download these two files (file 1 and file 2). Afterwards, you’ll have to create an account here. Then you’ll have to add MGO2 to the RPCS3 games’ list, launch and test the game.
You can find a tutorial for the installation procedure below. You can also find below a video, showing two hours of gameplay from Metal Gear Online 2 on PC via RPCS3.
As we’ve said multiple times in the past, the preservation of older titles is the main reason why emulators are so important. Metal Gear Online 2 is not playable in its original version. However, and thanks to RPCS3, players can re-experience the game.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
