The famed map "Icebound Inferno" is coming to the game, and is most well-known for being the "Shadow Moses" map from the first Metal Gear Solid game.
The map features an Arctic Island that consists of a large snowfield with buildings of varying heights, and is best suited for medium to long-range combat.

239w ago - Konami Online's Brandon Laurino has revealed today both a Race Mission and 'Patriot' PS3 details for Metal Gear Online, as follows:
Hello all! The SCENE Expansion pack was recently released for Metal Gear Online, which came with a ton of exciting new features, maps, and of course two new playable characters, Vamp and Raiden. But there's even more content coming soon!
Starting on May 12th 2009, all players, not just those who have purchased SCENE, will be able to play an entirely new game mode, Race Mission! This mode pits two teams against each other, with the Blue Team searching for and protecting the KEROTAN target, and the Red Team searching for and protecting the GA-KO target.
Each time a team passes a check point with its target in hand, a new checkpoint will be generated. If a team drops its target and the target is not retrieved within a set period of time, the target's position will be reset and the checkpoint will change.
There will also be an exciting new "Patriot" feature available to all players, starting on May 26th. This feature will select a few lucky players every week starting from the 26th, and give them exclusive access to a 5.56mm Hand Rifle with infinite ammunition and no reload....
