A constant Internet connection is required to access all the game modes of Metal Gear Survive.
According to the official Metal Gear Survive website, “an Internet connection is required to play.”
Apparently, this means you can not play your single-player campaign offline.
While Konami could not specify why Metal Gear Survive is a game only online, it is likely to have been made to ensure that the game’s economy is balanced and free of cheaters.
As detailed on the site, the progress and rewards of the single-player and multiplayer player are shared between both modes.
Konami also said that you can obtain creative resources in a single player and multiplayer.
In addition, you can obtain recipes to create specific items while exploring in a single player or can be purchased as a reward in cooperative missions.
The unique player aspect of Metal Gear Survive allows players to explore the world full of zombies and find a way back home.
In addition to defending against enemies, players will have to manage the oxygen levels of their air tanks as the “vast majority” of the game world in the single player campaign is shrouded in a deadly haze.
Because of this, “it will take repeated expeditions” to explore and unravel everything in the game world.
Metal Gear Survive launches on February 20, 2018 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Pre-ordering the game rewards players with plenty of cosmetic items. Similar to most games, a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold subscription is required to play online multiplayer.
