Konami has released a new patch for all versions of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. According to its changelog, this update adds new “Event FOB” missions, as well as a paid service via which players will be compensated for ‘any materials and staff lost due to rival infiltrations‘.
In others words, players will be able to infiltrate other people’s FOBs while they are offline. Now this sounds ridiculous, and this “insurance service” can be easily considered one of the worst micro-transactions features we’ve witnessed lately.
As Konami noted:
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.
This update is now live on Steam and is around 123MB.
