Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain microtransaction pricing revealed

Micropayments range from $1.65 to $80 for Mother Base Coins.

Ahead of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain launch, we've now learned more about the stealth-action game's microtransactions. Specifically, a new image posted on Metal Gear Network reveals pricing details for Mother Base Coins, which you can use for the game's Forward Operating Base online mode.

Forward Operating Base is a secondary base where you can go head-to-head with other players; this is not to be confused with Metal Gear Online, the game's other mode that is coming in October. You can use the Mother Base Coins to speed up gameplay. For example, as you get to higher levels, new platforms on your base can take an hour or so to generate. But using the coins lets you accelerate that process.

The Phantom Pain launches on September 1 for console and PC. The game is receiving high marks from critics, including a 10/10 score from GameSpot.
