Konami has announced Metal Gear Survive, a 4-player co-op survival experience set in the Metal Gear Solid V universe. This is the first Metal Gear title since creator Hideo Kojima left Konami to form his own studio.
Metal Gear Survive is set after the events of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes in an alternate timeline caused by unexplained wormholes forming in the sky. 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.
"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," said Konami.
"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."
Metal Gear Survive releases in 2017 on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
