Metal Gear Survive will be the first game in the franchise to be released following the parting ways of Hideo Kojima with Konami. Be that the cause or not, Metal Gear Survive will be a different game from the previous editions, with the gameplay set in an alternate reality following the events of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. The co-op multiplayer mode will serve as the key element.
Metal Gear Survive will be arriving for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Those who pre-order the game will also be receiving the Survival Pack. This features four gold-plated weapons that include a bat, sledgehammer, survival machete, and survival spear.
Alongside, players will also get two gestures – happy and thumbs-up – four survival scarves of green, blue, pink and silver hues, and a Kabuki face paint. Besides, the Survival Pack will also include the Mother Base nameplate and the Boxman accessory.
Metal Gear Survive was initially slated for a 2017 release. But Konami pushed the release to 2018 during E3 this year citing the requirement of more time to polish the game.
