Konami has today apologised for the connectivity issues that plagued the launch of Metal Gear Online last week.
Numerous complaints flooded social media as Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’s highly anticipated multiplayer component became available for download, with stability and matchmaking problems affecting a significant number of players.
In response to these issues, the publisher has “sincerely apologised” and offered compensation in the form of 3,000 Gear Points (GP) to all players, in addition to extending an existing XP boost from two weeks to three.
A spokesman added: “We will continue to improve so that your experience is more pleasant. We appreciate your continued use of Metal Gear Online.”
Our full review of Metal Gear Online, as well as numerous gameplay videos, should be available in the coming weeks.
