When players think of the Metal Gear Solid series, chances are they might be thinking of the game’s primary protagonist Snake. However for gamers who are looking to shake things up a bit, you’ll be interested to learn that a recent update released for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will let players play as Quiet.

For those who are unfamiliar with The Phantom Pain, Quiet is one of the characters in the game. Quiet is featured in the campaign where she acts as the game’s female protagonist and supports Snake in both infiltration and combat, but the update will now let players play as Quiet in the game’s online competitive multiplayer mode.

In addition to being able to play as Quiet, the latest Phantom Pain update introduces new difficulty levels to Event FOB missions as well as the introduction of new development items. It has been a while since The Phantom Pain received an update as major as this, and we guess we can’t blame players for thinking that maybe updates to the game might have come to an end.

However the latest update proves that Konami is still supporting the game so if you haven’t played the game in a while, now seems like a good time to take it for a spin.
