Metal Gear producer Yuji Korekado regrets to have caused confusion for gamers regarding Survive's spin-off nature. He then stated that there won't be any loot boxes, or Pay-to-Win microtransactions for that matter, in the game.
Still not buy though
Of course not, most people are blind sheep and wont buy this game because its a Metal Gear game not by Kojima... Quite frankly, thats pathetic. I am probably not going to buy it because of the always online bs for sp.
I'm not buying it for the same reason. I don't want a single player game I purchased to be shut off or no longer playable due to a patch not being distributed later down the line.
@cleft5 That is one of the dumbest things I've ever read. Calling them blind sheep because they prefer Kojima made Metal Gear? It's almost like he's proven to make good games in the franchise, and with his departure, they're not expecting much or something like that.
Always online is pathetic. But many Metal Gear fans won't buy even it's not always online because making a Metal Gear zombie is pathetic. And so your guess about most people are not going to buy because it isn't made by Kojima is....pathetic...truly pathetic.
No loot boxes but will have a pachinko type monetization. (worse than lootboxes)
Not buying because fuck Konami.
I think the greater issue that people have is their desire to support Konami as a publisher by supporting the game. That, of course, is only a part of the problem, aside from the always online, MT, randomness in the series, lack of support on MGSV in comparison, (they literally could have just made an expansion on MGSV, incorporating co op and fighting against the infected soldiers instead of these crystal zombies) the list goes on.
The guy in the article just admitted that it's not even a continuation of the Metal Gear series or connected to its story in any way. It's not just the lack of Kojima's involvement or Konami shenanigans, including always online, new focus on mobile gaming and pachinko machines.
I'm surprised because this game seems to be one built for loot boxes, paid or unpaid.
while i may not grab this game, this is a good thing to hear, the lootboxes scam needs to die.
Pay to win needs to die as well
People often get mistaken on what pay2win actually is, especially on these type of articles. I can't stand pay2win myself but people will put that tag next to anything that allows you to buy some gear through real money and that doesn't make it pay2win. The only time a game becomes pay2win is when the games community is playing, developers release a weapon let's say and it's that godly and costly that only around 5% of the games population can afford it, which then puts the rest out of contending/competeing in that said game. Then later the devs will release another weapon even more godly where that 5% would be cut in half or more making the split in the games community even higher to the point brackets are created, it's the rich that feed the pay2win ways and I agree it needs to do big time..
Anything that has payment to cut the normal time to obtain items or experience is P2W.
asphalt 8 racing king of pay to win
ZeroCarnage, that would be PayALotToWin.
Suuuuure "Always Online" and it features MTs regardless if they aren't "P2W" ones, hard to believe you guys. Anything to get us to buy it. Right...
Yah, always online is BS unless you're playing an MMO. Single player games should always have offline, as servers will never be up forever. As for no loot boxes, I'm curious how the it'll go. Paying real money for FOBs in MGS5 gave you access to better gear down the line (more FOBs = more staff = higher team levels and resource gains and staff to send on missions). Players that bought more FOBs had a nice advantage over people that didn't, as they could get the top grade level gear (like so https://imgur.com/a/LVYhd ) for defending or infiltrating bases. And you could buy "insurance" with real money so you wouldn't lose stuff (staff / resources) from lost infiltrations... So while the things like FOBs in MGS5 were "of the relatively innocent kind", players did get better grade level gear quicker if the paid real money.
That whole FOB concept was a really cool concept which seemed like it took a lot of careful planning to actually make it work. I didn't realize how deep it was until I started understanding the concept. I always thought to myself how much time, resources, and money did the FOB use when it comes to MGS 5. That whole thing was super cool, but it was annoying that it was P2W, so I didn't think twice of it.
I play the beta and got bored. The game is okay but feel like I am playing an empty open world game that used MGSV gameplay and mechanic. I probably play the game, if PlayStation Plus give it for free but I don't believe, it worth the money.
Empty open world game. So the exact same as Kojima’s MGSV you mean
Yeah pretty much.
Just even more empty and a whole lot less fun. The Beta seemed OK at first, but it's pretty crap.
I just didn't know what the hell I was doing or had to do. I didn't really like it either. Same with the free Xbox Free Zombie game. I played it for about an hour and and I was lost lol
So exactly like MGSV haha
The inclusion of a system like MGS 5's FOB is still a big dissapointment, but something I can still applaud them for not including the scourge that are lootboxes. Having to clarify that it's a spinoff is strange though, I thought that was pretty self explanatory.
The Beta was fun may get the game on discount sales
And anyone that’s actually played the beta doesn’t care about it anymore because it’s an absolute shower of shite game. No, it really is dreadful. There’s really no other words for it.
I uninstalled it after about 9 matches. It's garbage.
Konami: Lets lure them in with the Metal Gear franchise name, then before they knew what hit them we'll just shrug it off and apologize acting like it wasn't our intention to "confuse" them! *Minutes after Survive's first trailer* Konami: Abandon ship!!! They saw what we were trying to do as soon as we did it! How do we fix it...? A-HA! We'll just say the game doesn't have loot boxes... DAMN we're smart!!! *SOON AFTER LAUNCH* Generic gaming site article: "Survive barely sells 200K in it's first three months, Konami states its a 'sleeper hit' contender, and will reach its required sales target in due time." You read it here FIRST!
Thank you,Jon. We can always count of you.
"He then stated that there won't be any loot boxes, or Pay-to-Win microtransactions for that matter, in the game. " I would be genuinely shocked if even Konami had the gall to inject lootcrates or MT's into this digital vomit. I'm pretty sure even they knew that this thing would be beyond dead-on-arrival if they tried something like that. "Look our, our abortion of a game doesn't have the scummiest practices in gaming to date! Look over here! See?! What? Requires an internet connection to play any mode whatsoever? No, no, we trust you. We don't just assume you are a pirate. Come back!"
Great news, loving the Beta, confirmed right decision on pre-order. Awesome, awesome, awesome. Cheers
If his stance stands on no loot boxes and no pay2win then I'd deffo try it out.
Bullshit its Konami
konama kojima, same shit lolol kiddin
if you would've misspelled it as Kojina I would've literally lol'd
This is good, because it means the backlash against this kind of thing has been substantial. Game still sucks, but it's good for the grand scheme of things that gamers are rejecting these practices. I am curious though, because "P2W", seems to be somewhat subjective. It should mean "purely cosmetic", but I've heard people defend non-cosmetic MTs as not being P2W as well.
this game is terrible
Single Player still requires online DRM.
MGSV is one of my all-time favourite games, so the lure is strong, but unnecessary online-only drm = zero chance of a purchase -for this or ANY game.
Is it still "Always Online"??
Game looks fun. I'm sure it will at least be complete unlike MGSV
The beta was fun, although I wonder what other modes it will have. The single player will probably be pretty wacky. I will be picking this game up.
Make it playable offline and then we can talk
For a guy with such a positive attitude towards gaming I wish he made a good game instead.
this dumpster juice should have been a new content for the mgsv5 online, not a new game. looks like the same maps they used in mgsv5. they only put in some rusty boats and shit.
looks kinda cool so far
The balls on this guy. First off, why call it Metal Gear Survive if it has nothing to do with Metal Gear Solid? The game is always online so you can add pay to win features later if you wanted. It still has microtransactions in a single player game. Also let's not forget the innocent insurance plans provided by Konami in the Phantom Pain. There's no miscommunication, your publisher is just shit.
This should have been under another name. Not Metal Gear.
Ill be happy to spend this money on death stranding thank you very much.
Maybe in a $10 bargain bin
but it is still online based. not buying.
Remove the always online connected bullshit and ill buy it
