Metal Gear Survive will require an Internet connection to participate in the killing of zombies, a move that will probably further alienate Metal Gear players in the midst of an already controversial release.
The official game page for Metal Gear Survive is now available for players to examine it carefully, but navigating to the “Products” section of the site where it will soon be available for preorder will take you to a worrying detail about the game’s requirements. An asterisk below the potential number of players indicated that an Internet connection would be required to play the game without mentioning that that restriction is exclusive to the online game. A subscription to PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold is also required to play online on the respective platforms.
Since Metal Gear Survive was announced for the first time, those who have stayed with the series questioned the direction of the game, as it moved away from espionage and shooting and leaned strongly towards zombies and alternative realities. The enemies you will encounter in Metal Gear Survive are not zombies by definition, but they are simply the undead repackaged as deformed opponents controlled by the mind. Strengthen their structures and defend against the waves of these creatures seems to be the basis of the game.
Metal Gear Survive is scheduled to launch on February 20, 2018.
