Last week, we reported that Metal Gear Survive would indeed feature microtransactions, adding gamer-angering fuel to the already raging fire. In an effort to quench the flames, the game's producer, Yuji Korekado, commented on the issue in an interview with Official PlayStation Magazine UK.

He told the publication, "There will not be loot boxes, and there will not be Pay-to-Win types of microtransactions. There will be things like the accessories in Metal Gear Online, and Forward Operating Base in MGSV: The Phantom Pain."

Korekado also commented on the early confusion regarding what Metal Gear Survive would actually be. "Fans and gamers in general seemed to take Metal Gear Survive to be a continuation of the Metal Gear series, so I regret that we caused that confusion."

It seems as though the microtransactions won't be all that intrusive after all, which will be good news to anyone interested in playing. We'll have to wait and see once the game launches to really understand the extent of the in-game purchases, but at least we know it won't be full of pay-to-win nonsense.
