Metal Gear Survive, a co-op stealth game set in an alternate timeline, is releasing in 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, Konami announced today.
Set after the ending of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Metal Gear Survive takes place in an alternate timeline caused by wormholes appearing in the sky. As shown in the trailer, you find yourself in a desert filled with half-formed structures, biological threats, and the remains of a once strong military.
With Konami saying it “takes a divergent look at familiar Metal Gear themes and pursues a fresh spirit of exploration in unique gameplay mechanics,” here’s what else you need to know about Metal Gear Survive:
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.
Konami’s Tomotada Tashiro adds:
We are delighted to announce another exciting addition to the METAL GEAR franchise. METAL GEAR SURVIVE will offer a fresh take on the series’ famed stealth elements but within a unique co-op setting that is designed for a truly engrossing multi-player experience.
According to a fact sheet GamesRadar saw, the first Metal Gear game after Hideo Kojima’s departure from Konami will be around $30.
