Online services for MGSV:TPP (Xbox 360, PS3) and GZ (Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One, PS4) to be terminated

Konami has shared an announcement on the official Metal Gear portal site stating that the online services for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be terminated on May 31st of 2022. This only affects the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions. Both MGSV itself and its multiplayer component Metal Gear Online will be shut down on that date. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will also lose its network service on the same date, but this time it also affects the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game.

MGS4 servers were closed after only 4 years, by the way https://www.metalgearinform...

Don't remind me, my favourite online game of all time :(

It's been brought back with RPCS3, if you're curious to get back into it.

I played this game recently. This is a problem because infiltrating online bases is by FAR the best way to get money.

During the actual game i made a few mill doing story missions, and procuring equipment, but with the online wallet, I had 100m+ in a few hours.

Not to mention you'd need to create online FOBs to max your gear.

Was hoping there would be a next gen patch to make the idroid a little less laggy. Really, a masterpiece of a game.

And that's why online elements in single player games will never be welcomed by me

Remember that the services for Phantom Pain on Xbox One, PS4 and PC are still going to be online. But it is only a matter of time, I suppose.

Are there any trophies or achievements tied to online?

Nakiro47d ago

Well... that's unfortunate.

Actually 3, Intruder, Deterrence and Disarmament. You have to connect to the online to finish building the Nuke and get the trophy, meaning you can't disarm it either without online.

I still need to play these games. I have the PS3 versions

The online component is really helpful with online connectivity. You get minerals and stuff while you sleep to build up your base.

MetroidFREAK2146d ago

I don't think I'll get to it before the online service is shut down

Hopefully they are planning on remastering the game(along with MGS4) with new servers soon for PS5/XSX. That's a hope I have.

Nope. PS is plastered all over the game.
