Metal Gear Survive, the zombie survival game spin-off of Konami's Metal Gear series, will have Microtransactions - but according to the game's producer Yuji Korekado they will not be Pay-To-Win, and the game will not have Loot Crates.
Metal Gear Survive was confirmed to have Microtransactions by GameSpot, with a screenshot of the store page - which shows various boosts and Defenders players can buy:
However, in the latest issue of Playstation UK Official Magazine (repeated by WCCFTech), the game's producer Yuji Korekado suggests that these boosts will not be Pay-To-Win, and Metal Gear Survive will not have Loot Crates.
"There will not be loot boxes, and there will not be Pay-to-Win types of microtransactions. There will be things like the accessories in Metal Gear Online, and Forward Operating Base in MGSV: The Phantom Pain."
Certainly good news for anyone concerned about these, especially considering how trying to force them into the game ruined Star Wars Battlefront II.
Metal Gear Survive is currently in open beta on PS4 and Xbox One, but sadly not PC - although according to Konami the PC version will launch alongside the console versions on February 20 (US) and February 22 (Europe).
This will be the first Metal Gear game since creator and series mastermind Hideo Kojima left Konami.
