Metal Gear Solid V adds extortion to its feature set

, | News

That’s a really nice Forward Operating Base you have there. It would be a shame if something bad happened to it. You’ve spent all that time and energy building up your online Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain FOB into a stronghold of armed men, equipment, and resources. It would really be terrible if some jackass infiltrator came in and stole all your plants, metal, and specialist soldiers. Maybe if you grease the wheels a bit with some real money, there might be something that can be done? If you’d like some peace of mind, Konami is offering FOB insurance in the latest update to the game.

Your FOBs are always at risk of coming under attack. Now, you can rest easy with FOB insurance (paid service). If you sign up for insurance, then during the insurance period you will be compensated for any materials and staff lost due to rival infiltrations.

The patch adds higher grade weapons, more equipment options for your security teams, and special infiltration missions. Wouldn’t you like to use that stuff without worrying about online rivals jacking your FOB? It’s a dangerous world out there. A little money can go a long way.
