Campaign should take 15-20 hours to complete.
Konami has confirmed Metal Gear Survive will require a constant online connection and include a microtransaction system.
As reported by GameSpot—after attending a preview session—the survival action game will require you to have an internet connection at all times, even if you’re playing solo. According to Konami, this is to “support a seamless integration between single player and co-op,” and enable the studio to deliver “ongoing content post-launch.”
Additionally, Metal Gear Survive will have microtransactions through an online store where players can use real money to purchase in-game currency that can be used to buy things like Boost Passes. The virtual currency can also be acquired by simply playing the game.
With regard to Metal Gear Survive’s length, Konami brand manager Jennifer Tsang told GameSpot the campaign should take anywhere from 15 to 20 hours to complete.
Metal Gear Survive launches on February 20 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. An open beta for the game on PS4 and Xbox One kicked off earlier this week and will conclude tomorrow.
