Konami Clarifies Metal Gear Solid V PvP Microtransactions; You Don’t Need Real Money To Play FOB

on August 24, 2015 7:48 PM

Today a few outlets alleged that Metal Gear Solid V players will be required to pay real money in order to play Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain‘s Fowards Operating Base (FOB) online PvP feature.

Konami since clarified the issue on Twitter.

So no, as many may have guessed, you won’t need to pay real money to gain access to the feature. Microtransactions are indeed in the game (and we’ve known for a while), but they’re optional. Apparently, someone jumped the gun here. Who is surprised?
