Video Game News, Reviews and Reflection! New Articles Released Randomly Every Week!
Metal Gear Network, Konami’s site for all things known for the upcoming Phantom Pain has revealed new information on the game’s Forward Operating Base mode.
As a PvP system, FOB will be a secondary base used to add new soldiers and new techs to the main base, with risks and rewards to go with it. The player will use rewards from successful missions to grow the base and make it a force to be reckoned with. This secondary base seems to take the form of an offshore oil rig, probably with oil production as the currency to build new components.
The microtransactions will exist in this game mode, and will serve to grow the base more quickly with MB (Mother Base) Coins, or to build more than one FOB (the first base can be purchased with in-game currency). While few exact details have been revealed, it is likely to have exclusive skins/colors and buildings available only through the microtransaction system.
Whether you love microtransactions or hate the very idea of them, at least we know it will be there.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be released tomorrow, September 1st.
