Metal Gear Survive charges money for extra save slots

Metal Gear Survive, the first game from Konami in the MGS series that doesn't have Hideo Kojima in the backend is going to charge you $10 to buy an additional save slot apart from the primary one provided in game.

Once you start the game, the fist save slot will be created and a message will appear.

You'll note that "playing the game" isn't among these options, because it isn't an option.

Keeping your existing character essentially means creating another save file for your new one. Retro players may have come across half-a-dozen save slots and PC gamers are known for saving RTS titles like Age of Empires multiple times so as to not lose even a single change. Purchasing 1,150 SV coins on PSN, Steam or Xbox Live costs £7.99. It is with Metal Gear Survive that they are out to prove that there is still life in the old dog yet - and surely a survival, base building zombie-esque spinoff will do the trick?

There is no technical reason for an additional save slot to cost the player money.

US Gamer reports that Survive players will need to spend 1,000 Survival Coins, or a little under $10 dollars, to unlock a second character slot. Every daily login will provide you with 30 SV Coins, if that helps. The game also includesmicrotransactions and lots of other things to purchase using SV coins.

So in other words, if you don't want to spend the extra cash, the only way to go about it is changing your character.
