METAL GEAR SURVIVE announced – New four-player co-op stealth zombie spin-off

Konami has just announced a new addition to the METAL GEAR SOLID V experience, METAL GEAR SURVIVE. METAL GEAR SURVIVE is a brand new co-op, stealth game that – according to the press release – takes a divergent look at familiar METAL GEAR themes and pursues a fresh spirit of exploration in unique gameplay mechanics.

Tomotada Tashiro, European President for Konami Digital Entertainment, said:

“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.”

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.

To be honest, this is an unnecessary spin-off that shows how desperate KONAMI is. On paper, this game has every gaming cliche. Survival elements? Check. Co-op gameplay? Check. Zombies? Check. I mean… seriously now… zombies. Zombies. ZOMBIES.

Anyway, METAL GEAR SURVIVE is planned for a 2017 release and you can find its announcement trailer below.
