Metal Gear Survive open beta coming to Steam on February 16th

Konami has announced that Metal Gear Survive will get an open beta testing on the PC. This open beta phase will begin on February 16th, will feature 3 missions across 2 maps in co-op mode, and will last until February 18th.

The open beta co-op mode can be played with up to four players online, and Konami will also offer special daily missions. Upon finishing creating your character, participants in the Metal Gear Survive Beta will receive an in-game bonus in the full game.

Metal Gear Survive picks up from the ending of METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES. Players are pulled through a wormhole 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 is currently scheduled for a February 20th release!
