Metal Gear Survive Comes with Microtransactions; Constant Connection Needed

Metal-Gear-Survive_gamescom7

Well, if all of that wasn't enough to get the blood in your veins boiling like hot water in a tin pot for a teabag on a cold winter's day in MA, maybe the revelation that Metal Gear Survive will be always-on and have pay-to-win microtransactions will set the red liquids under your skin on fire. As part of the game's promotion, Konami has revealed more details about the game, but not everyone is happy with what's on offer.

The always-on DRM means that you'll always have to check into the game's servers to get a handshake before you can play the single-player mode... alone.

Konami has come forward and also confirmed that the game will require a constant internet connection as the developer is aspiring to be bring a "seamless" experience to players traversing between multiplayer and singleplayer content.

Metal Gear Survive Open Beta is now available for download in some regions on PS4 and on Xbox One.

The beta also provides a virtual slice of the hub world and side missions where you're able to obtain loot and personalise things to your liking.

At this point, it is unclear exactly how much money these Coins will cost.

Metal Gear Survive is a survival-action title based on the Metal Gear series but is a marked departure from the standard stealth action and espionage gameplay seen in the past. Participants in beta will receive an in-game bonus with the purchase of the full game. It's unclear whether or not it will make any changes in response to fan concerns, but those feeling let down by the beta will have their fingers crossed for an overhaul.

"Quick update everyone. Metal Gear Survive's beta is unfortunately not yet available for PS4 in the Americas".
