Metal Gear Survive Available Online Only WIth Microtransactions
The spin-off to the Metal Gear series is the Metal Gear Survive which is a co-op shooter video game. This is the very first game to come out since Hideo Kojima left the company. The game is scheduled to be released in a month, and some announcement about the game’s details was made available.
To play the game, players must need an internet connection. This is for both the single-player and multiplayer modes of the game. The motivation behind this is to provide players with a seamless experience as well as help with the content updates said Konami. This, however, has been seen before in other games and is actually not that new anymore.
Konami also announced that there will be microtransactions in the game just like that of Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain. Players would have the option to purchase coins or learn them in the game which they are able to use in purchasing different items as well as Boost Passes.
Jennifer Tsang, Konami’s brand manager told GameSpot in an interview that the whole game campaign can be completed in 15-20 hours in the single-player mode. Co-ops and multiplayers are expected to clock in more hours of gameplay.
Also, in other news, a Metal Gear Survive beta started yesterday January 20th which will only run for 24 hours. The beta is available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One globally, however, some issues were encountered in the PlayStation 4 beta in the Americas. Those who joined the beta can play 2 maps, 3 missions, and some live events. And if players decide to purchase the complete game, they will be able to keep their in-game bonuses.
Metal Gear Survive officially launches on February 22 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
