Hideo Kojima had left Konami towards the end of last year to focus on his independent studio, but that doesn’t stop the Japanese company from creating the next Metal Gear game. Today, Konami announced their brand new game of the Metal Gear franchise titled as Metal Gear Survive.
The upcoming game which is described to have co-op mechanics will release next year for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game is set just after the events of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.
Here’s the Konami’s press release regarding the game:
METAL GEAR SURVIVE picks up from the ending of METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES, to an alternate timeline caused by unexplained wormholes forming in the sky. 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.
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.
Here’s the debut trailer of Metal Gear Survive:
