Konami has announced that the beta for Metal Gear Survive is now available for download.
Starting today through January 21st, fans can experience new features in co-op mode, including new missions and live events. The beta features two maps with three missions for co-op mode. Participants in the beta will also earn in-game bonus items which will be rewarded upon the full game’s release, including: one Fox Hound name plate, one Metal Gear Rex head accessory, and one bandana accessory.
Metal Gear Survive picks up from the ending of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. Players are pulled through a worm hole and land in a hostile world where they look for answers while trying to survive in the harsh environment. Not only will they fight off deadly creatures, but also explore and forage the environment for food, water and other resources to stay alive. Scavenged materials can be used to build weapons, buildings and other useful items, as well as develop a base camp, where crop growing and animal rearing facilities can be added. New weaponry will also be introduced to combat charging creatures and lethal environments, as well as familiar weaponry such as Walker Gears and Fulton balloons.
Metal Gear Survive releases on the 20th of February in North America and on the 22nd of February in Europe.
