Big Boss returns to battle in this all-new MGS action game for the PSP system. 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. Portable Ops introduces a new team building mechanic that brings additional depth and gameplay variety to the series -- players can now capture and recruit characters and train them to be part of their army to help Snake on his mission! The game also features fully-voiced cut scenes with original artwork by acclaimed visualist Ashley Wood.

In addition to a full-fledged single player mode set after the events of MGS3: Snake Eater, the game's 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.


A new "White Flag" system for the game's multiplayer modes lets players choose to surrender and live to fight again or battle to the death and risk permanently losing some of their most valuable comrades.
Based on the unique IP address contained in all wireless hot spots, players can locate and download characters unique to that spot.
Capture and recruit characters in any of the game's levels and assign them to different units that will perform different functions, such as healing teammates, gathering intelligence and creating new items. Recruit rare and unique characters with special abilities throughout the game -- each character is rated on a series of more than ten attributes, giving players incredible variety in building the ideal squad and creating different teams that are best suited to different types of combat situations.
