Announced at Gamescom earlier today, Konami is releasing its first Metal Gear title without the involvement of Hideo Kojima in the form of Metal Gear Survive, a co-op survival title that can be played with up to three friends. The game takes place directly after the events of Ground Zeroes where four survivors find themselves stranded in an alternate reality that has them fighting off zombie-like creatures. SO basically Resident Evil, but not really.
Metal Gear Survive deviates strongly from the traditional Metal Gear formula – judging from what we’ve seen thus far, that is – but it’s said to still have a heavy emphasis on stealth gameplay. Many fans were displeased with the announcement, with the developers stating more information will be unveiled “at some point in the future”.
In an interview with Polygon, it was stated that Metal Gear Survive won’t cost a full $60 with a price tag that’ll come closer to that of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’s prologue, namely the aforementioned Ground Zeroes, which came at the price of $30 when it first hit retail.
As soon as information regarding this title surface, you can read all about it right here on Twinfinite.
Metal Gear Survive is expected to release in 2017.
