Metal Gear Survive Is Charging $10 For a Second Save Slot

Metal Gear Survive takes a unique survival spin on the MGS series

It isn't exactly breaking news that Metal Gear Survive includes microtransactions, but it seems that Konami has really outdone itself with this one.

Metal Gear Survive released earlier this week in the United States, and players who wish to create a new character for a second playthrough of the game, or just to have another on hand, will need to fork over some Survival Coins.

Ramping up the ridiculousness even further, if you share your Steam, Xbox Live, or PSN account with family members, each additional player will have to spend that extra $10 to play with their own character.

Prehistoric cave paintings actually drawn by Neanderthals, not humans
He suspects that primitive members of both the modern human and Neanderthal lineages could have co-existed in western Asia. Hoffman and colleagues note that the earliest South African artefacts so far discovered date to about 79,000 years ago.

This is how much it will cost in order to acquire the 1,000 Survival Coins, the microtransaction currency of Metal Gear Survive, in order to create a second character.

At the time of writing the cost of 1150 SV Coins is US$9.99. Which means, if you happened to want two characters on the go in MGS, then you have to pay up. By scavenging for resources, building up a base camp complete with fortifications created to keep the enemy out, and crafting an array of weapons, and you can work your way to getting back to your own universe - if that is possible.
