Metal Gear Solid 5 Definitive EX

Just last week, Konami released a new 40 minute gameplay demo for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. The game is a continuation of Ground Zeroes and will feature optional microtransactions.

Microsotractions came to light after the game was listed on PlayStation Store. Microtransactions are always a red-flag, so fans were concerned of how they may affect the game.

During the gameplay demo Konami shared, the developer addressed all of these concerns by assuring fans that these will not have a negative influence on the experience.

While it is true that a few microtransactions option due exists, the entire game has been carefully balanced to be fair and enjoyable with or without using these options.

Konami further stated that there is no pay-to-win model:

There’s no pay to win option. Rest assured that every single item, weapon, and mission in the game is available to all players without paying a single cent.

However, due to the sheer scale of the game and time required to explore it all, microtransactions were added as a completely optional feature for players who might not be able to spend as much time with the game.Nothing more, nothing less. More info on how this works will be announced in the near future.

Well, that’s a relief isn’t it?

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will release on September 1 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
