Konami have shocked the world with the announcement of a new post-Hideo Kojima Metal Gear title, called Metal Gear Survive. It features zombies, an alternate timeline, and co-op. It’s also set just after the events of Ground Zeroes.
“METAL GEAR SURVIVE picks up from the ending of METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES, to an alternate timeline caused by unexplained wormholes forming in the sky. Players find themselves on distorted desert landscapes full of massive half-formed structures, living biological threats, and the remains of a once strong military force now litter the landscape.”
An announcement trailer also came along, just to show you what to expect. I’m confused.
“In a struggle to stay alive on this harsh terrain filled with deadly creatures, soldiers who were previously on Mother Base now must work cooperatively in order to survive. METAL GEAR SURVIVE continues the pedigree of METAL GEAR SOLID V’s highly praised gameplay design, with a unique blend of stealth and co-op play mechanics. Players can strategically manage massive threats with the help of 4-player online cooperative play. New weaponry will also be introduced to combat charging creatures and lethal environments as well.”
Metal Gear Survive is due to hit Steam, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2017.
