Metal Gear Survive will require a constant internet connection for anyone to play the game, according to Gamespot.
Konami made this decision in order to offer a seamless experience, according to Gamespot. “Metal Gear Survive’s online connectivity requirements were built to support a seamless integration between single player and co-op,” Konami said. “This will also enable us to provide ongoing content post-launch.”
Metal Gear Survive will also feature a microtransaction store where players can purchase items with virtual currency. The exact price of this virtual currency and the items that will be offered are currently unknown.
This isn’t the first time that a Metal Gear game has had microtransactions, however. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain also had microtransactions that allowed the player to purchase Forward Operating Bases.
Metal Gear Survive releases March 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
