Metal Gear Survive New Gameplay Footage Released

The Metal Gear spinoff releases next month

Konami’s Metal Gear Survive is soon to approach its release date. Though Hideo Kojima himself might be disinterested, its standing as a multiplayer Metal Gear might be enough to draw some fans. But as the new video reveals, the game won’t be just for online modes; there looks to be a robust single-player as well.

For those unfamiliar, the premise of Metal Gear Survive is an alternate reality take on the after-events of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. After a wormhole destroys most of Mother Base, the sole survivor (one’s character) is tasked with exploring the other dimension. Recruited by a shadowy organization, the player is to gather survivors and supplies and work to defeat the new ‘zombie’ menace.

What exactly the zombies are is yet a mystery, though they seem driven by the crystal in their heads. Moreover, the video suggests that there may be more to them than what we have seen so far. A new type seen is one with an arm launcher; there is as well the brief suggestion of a zombie that is particularly giant.


Whether or not it deserves a chance is up to Metal Gear’s fans. It isn’t a Kojima title, but it looks to be a game that has had a lot of attention put into it regardless.

A beta of Metal Gear Survive begins this month, on January 18, for PS4 and Xbox One. The full game itself releases on February 20, for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
