In a recent blog post, Konami outlined some new changes coming to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain in the November update.

One of the biggest items in the update is the ability to build a third FOB for a player’s base which will increase the maximum number of staff players can hold.

The update is also introducing Grade 8 weapons into the mix with the WU S.PISTOL CB tranquilizer handgun and the KABARGA-83 automatic shotgun. Grade 8 equipment is classified as online development items, or more plainly, equipment that goes through the development process while players are away.

Kojima will also be adding a new “stealth mode” for FOB infiltrations, easier access to rookie and beginner functions like the chicken hat, and new FOB security devices like gun cameras.

Other improvements include:

  • The top rankings for PF Rating and Espionage Rating will now be displayed.
  • Whereas until now only resources in your offline inventory could be sold, from now on your online inventory can also be sold.
  • The issue with certain DLC uniform equipment not having its advertised effect is now fixed.
  • In-game notifications of events and other news have been improved.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was released earlier this year for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC platforms. The full list of update notes can be found here.
