Metal Gear Survive

is an upcoming co-op survival action game by Konami Digital Entertainment that is set to release February 20, 2018. It is the first Metal Gear game to be developed since Hideo Kojima ‘s departure from Konami in late 2015, as well as the second Metal Gear-related project to be conducted since the same time period (the first being a pachislot adaptation of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater ). Metal Gear Survive is an open-world sneak-shooter where players also build bases and craft fortifications to fend off hordes of zombies with crystals where their heads were.

While Survive retains much of the core mechanics found from Metal Gear Solid V , it goes about its core gameplay a bit differently, tasking players to strengthen their character and their base with the materials procured out in the field. As I’m sure you know by now, Metal Gear Survive eliminates the tactical and stealth-based gameplay that metal gear surviveseries is known for, and throws the player into a strange, alternate reality where they have to scavenge for supplies while protecting their base from hordes of strange zombies who would love nothing more than to put the foreigners into the ground.

Given that the plot is traditionally of paramount importance in Metal Gear games, it was somewhat of a surprise to learn that Metal Gear Survive features none of the characters of the series, instead featuring a brand new cast of Mother Base soldiers. MGS will provide both single player and co-operative multiplayer modes and will be available to play on the Xbox One , PlayStation 4 and PC.

As much as we’re not yet convinced of the long term appeal of Metal Gear Survive, we have to give what we’ve seen so far credit for going all in on its demanding survival-centric gameplay. It certainly helps to have the¬†Metal Gear Solid V¬†gameplay as an incredible base to start off with, but this new cooperative riff on that is a fresh experience.It’s Metal Gear gameplay blended with old-school survival, and it works surprisingly well.The gameplay will be more or less the same as Metal Gear V, only when the full game is released Sledgehammer Games will have received money for the service being provided, therefore giving you what you came for.
