Metal Gear Survive Will Have Microtransactions and Require an Internet Connection

The first Metal Gear entry since Kojima's departure from Konami will require an online connection to play.

If you want to play Metal Gear Survive when it releases next month, you’re going to need to have a stable Internet connection. Konami has also confirmed that the game will feature optional microtransactions.

This new information comes from GameSpot during a recent preview session. The game will require a constant online connection in order to smoothly transition between single-player and multiplayer modes. “Metal Gear Survive’s online connectivity requirements were built to support a seamless integration between single player and co-op. This will also enable us to provide ongoing content post-launch,” Konami told GameSpot.

“Always online” isn’t an uncommon term in modern gaming, with online-driven titles such as Destiny 2 and Overwatch requiring access to the Internet to play.

The game will also feature a microtransaction store allowing players to use their in-game currency to purchase Boost Passes, which grant advantages for a set period of time, as well as other beneficial items such as “Support Defenders.” The ability to buy currency with real money is optional, as it will still be naturally earnable through gameplay.

Metal Gear Survive will release February 20th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Stay with GameSkinny for more information on Metal Gear Survive as it develops.
