We all knew Konami wasn’t going to let Metal Gear gather dust after the departure of Hideo Kojima. Konami is currently developing a new Metal Gear game called Metal Gear Survive.
It promises “a unique blend of stealth and co-op play mechanics” and will essentially be a survival game, only with added gears and metal. The game’s already got its first trailer. It’s after the jump.
According to the press blurb, Metal Gear Survive is set after the events of MGS V: Ground Zeroes, only in an “alternate timeline”, because wormholes and science.
“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.
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.”
Judging by all the hate already plaguing the announcement, fans don’t seem too happy with the new, Kojima-less game. Fans of Kojima’s work should at least be happy to know he’s still developing games at his own studio.
Metal Gear Survive will be out sometime in 2017, making its way to PC, PS4 and XBO.
