Konami weren’t lying that the Metal Gear franchise was dead for consoles and PC. The publisher has announced its releasing a new game called Metal Gear Survive.
Revealed exclusively on IGN, Metal Gear Survive will be a stealth video game releasing on PC, PS4 and Xbox One in 2017. It’s a 4 player co-op stealth video game which means multiplayer will be a big factor.
The game is set after the events of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes where members of the Militaires Sans Frontières who survived the game’s ending are transported to an alternative universe. In this alternate universe, they have to fight off “a force of crystalline zombies” as well as at least one Metal Gear machine.
Konami says this is a new take on the franchise and it’s built for a co-op muliplayer experience. This is the first game in the popular series to be made after Hideo Kojima left the company last year. Big Boss appears at the beginning of the trailer, although this looks very different to the main series.
You can look at the trailer yourself by watching it below. Graphically, the Fox Engine brings the game to life. However, many people are already giving it a thumbs down on YouTube.
