Konami Says ‘Sorry’ For Metal Gear Online Launch Woes

Metal Gear Online has had some struggles in its first week. There have been server and matchmaking issues that have impacted a number of players.

As a way to make up for the problems, Konami is giving Metal Gear fans two different things. First, everyone will receive 3000GP to every player. This will automatically be applied after today’s maintenance.

The XP Boost period has also been extended. If you’ve already activated your boost, it will be applied for three weeks instead of two.

Thankfully, there's a pretty solid single-player game you can spend your time with. Just remember to go offline so menus don't get bogged down if the servers hitch.

Our Take
Unfortunately, the FOB and general connectivity problems Metal Gear Solid V suffered during the first month hinted at MGO issues. I think when I get back to it, I’m going offline permanently and ignoring the online features (and all of their related problems) permanently.
