Konami has revealed the latest entry in the Metal Gear Universe, Metal Gear Survive. This one stars four soldiers left behind after the ending of Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes as they are sucked into an alternate universe and need to fight to survive against waves of other-worldly enemies.
As a personal aside, I am not a fan of this and it looks like Konami may not know what to do with the MGS IP following the departure of Kojima. We will see more when it launches in 2017 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Press Release from Konami:
“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.
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.”
