Metal Gear Online is getting more match options, with the official Twitter account for the game announcing today that all size of matches from 1 v 1 to 8 v 8 can be set up in custom matches.
When playing a custom match, you can select 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 4v4, 5v5, 6v6, 7v7, and 8v8 # of players

It is worrying that the most basic customisation you can have in a match, the number of players, is a feature announcement that had to be added “after some deliberation and thanks to (player) input”. Increasingly these days you play how the developer intended or not at all, we are a long way from custom servers and being able to alter just about every aspect of a multiplayer game.
Still, this is good news for those interested in the online multiplayer side of the stealth action series. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain arrives 1 September, with Metal Gear Online included as the multiplayer package, for PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360, and 15 September for PC.
