Metal Gear Survive final box art tells us a few things: always online, 16+ PEGI rating and Xbox One X support

Konami has released the final pack shot for Metal Gear Survive, and it tells us a few things. First of all, it confirms the game requires an internet connection to play, something that was rumored a few months ago when mention of this appeared on the official website. Because it did not specify whether this was about the online co-op mode, or the game as a whole, we tried to get confirmation from Konami but they weren’t able to provide an answer. But with the release of this pack shot it does seem that not just the co-op, but the entire game requires an internet connection, and is essentially an always online game. This probably has to do with the fact that your progress carries over between both modes.

Secondly, it seems that PEGI (Pan European Game Information), the organization that rates games in Europe much like the ESRB in the US, has established a final age rating, and it’s actually lower than their provisional rating. They gave the game a rating of 16 and up, which is lower than the 18+ rating for MGSV or the Mature rating of the ESRB.

Lastly, the Xbox One pack shot confirms HDR support and some sort of enhancements on Xbox One X, the high specced system Microsoft released in November of last year.Those who played MGSV at launch may remember the annoying server issues that caused the game’s menu to become drastically slower, so having a game require you to be online is kind of worrying. On the other hand, the servers probably won’t be as overloaded as with that game. We will see how things go for the beta when it starts later this month.

    So it looks like we are being in an underwater dimention.
    Our Sea and our water..we are The Underwater Squad!

    First of all, it confirms the game requires an internet connection to play

    I have a bad feeling about this…

    I don’t like the idea of no standalone mode to load the game.. Solo should always be bootable (!?)..

    And PEGI 16 means we will kill only zombies, or what ? ..

  • Datriax

    If you actually pay for this schlock, then I truly feel bad for your degree of intellect. This is the equivalent of digital diarrhea.

    • Mr.Sixes

      You played it?

  • BurntFM

    Always Online? Yeah I can see this going the way of this game:

    And with servers for games like Gravity Rush 2 having it’s online servers shutdown only a year after release from low sales, if this game doesn’t do well, the people who bought it might have their servers shutdown because it won’t be financially viable to keep them online.

    • MAG… Memories of it’s reveal… Dunno why Sony have not tried to polish the concept of it. Was a neat idea back in it’s days.

      Online servers will eventually shutdown for sure, but Metal Gear is a good brand, so there will be players for it at launch.
      And they are doing Online by game design I guess. If the game will work it’s going to be good and maybe Konami will continue it’s concept (which I doubt).

      • Mr.Pony

        The fact that they basically dropped support for MGO and FOB stuff doesn’t bode well for an always online game. Let’s hope that doesn’t become the case for Survive.

        • Mr.Sixes

          Except that was more of a case of the Studio no longer technically existing and the project lead leaving

          • Mr.Pony

            Hardly an excuse for Konami to drop support of their own products.

          • Mr.Sixes

            Except how do you support something with no real direction or team behind it?

          • Mr.Pony

            If you can put together a team to develop a spin-off co-op game, you can set a team to handle an online component (which resemble at best a third of the whole project) of a launched game.

          • Mr.Sixes

            Not if you’re not really deeply interested in continuing it and would rather move on.

  • Off topic, but what games are you guys looking forward to this year?

    • Mr.Pony

      To me its a lot a of indies and early access games.

      For this year? Well, games that are officially confirmed for 2018 …
      From least to greatest, here my most anticipated 2018 games:

      10. Detroit: Become Human
      I mean, these type of games are very rare.
      And this one’s looking great!

      9. Vampyr
      From the devs who created Life is Strange?
      Of course this is anticipated!

      8. Dragon Ball FighterZ
      I need a new fighter to my Tekken 7.
      I’m fan of the Dragon Ball franchise.
      Put 2 & 2 together.

      7. Metal Gear Survive
      Well, we’re all Metal Gear fans, right?
      Here I am, waiting for this one.

      6. A Way Out
      Looks very Uncharted-like!
      A great game to play with your best pal.

      5. Skulls & Bones
      I’m a big fan of ACIV: Black Flag!
      And of historical pirates (leaning more towards the fantasy aspect)
      And so of course this one was gonna appeal to me!

      4. Marvel’s Spider-Man
      The one to dethrone Batman?
      Looking like so!

      3. God of War
      It just…
      An adventure awaits us, lads.

      2. Red Dead Redemption II
      Sequel to one of my favorite experiences in gaming in all my gaming life?

      1. Days Gone
      You know, my fav. title is The Last of Us, and Days Gone looks to be a worthy sequel (even though it isn’t, it’s its own title). Their similarities were very striking, and so perhaps that’s why this is my most anticipated. The acting, the way the character reacts to his surroundings, beautifully crafted open-world, and the zombies are unlike any other games we’ve seen before. What other game has a horde coming at you like that? What? Left 4 Dead? Please, that is some arcade joke of a zombie game. No. This, this is something special. This is a vet studio on their backs. This is their final shot to deliver their best; to keep themselves making afloat with the big boys. They’re giving all they got. You can tell, by their trailers, they went all out. I’m anticipating the hell out of it!

    • PrinceHeir

      Yakuza 6
      Bayonetta 1/2 Switch

      Kingdom Come: Deliverance

      Detroit: Become Human, if it keeps its promises, even though I’m not exactly a fan of David Cage.

      Any upcoming gameplay and story footage for Death Stranding^^

  • AeroGre

    Cant wait to try it out

  • This suddenly came up on tv here in the Netherlands (the program is a newscast for children):

    • Lex Radu

      And Hideo Retweeted it.

  • NegaScott128

    Guillermo del Toro just won the Critics’ Choice Award for Best Director: “I’m short, I’m fat, I don’t have a problem.”

    • NegaScott128

      And The Shape of Water just won Best Picture.

  • GOD DAMN IT… AHAHHAHA! This is good.

    • NegaScott128

      Kizuna Ai is the best.

    • BurntFM

      I often go back to this video and am amazed at how genuine the reaction was, because it was the very first. Everyone else who got it was already spoiled by it or had to follow instructions. This is still very entertaining.

      • NegaScott128

        The full stream video is even better, because it shows that only 3 people were watching the reveal when she got it. (2:08:47 for mobile users)
