In Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops, “multiplayer modes let players take their custom squad online to do battle across new levels, featuring a unique “White Flag” mechanic that will allow players to fight to the death (with your valuable squad on the line if you lose) or surrender to compete again.” Video after the jump.

Set in 1970, the game acts as a missing link in the ongoing Metal Gear Solid narrative, as players learn more about returning characters such as Para-Medic, Major Zero and Sigint and also witness Big Boss’ greatest tragedy — one that sets into motion the events of later games in the series’ timeline
