Konami announced today a new entry in the Metal Gear franchise titled, Metal Gear Survive.
Metal Gear Survive is a new co-op stealth game that “takes a divergent look at the familiar Metal Gear themes and pursues a fresh spirit of exploration in unique gameplay mechanics.”
According to Konami, Metal Gear Survive takes place between the events of Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain. For now, we don’t see any returning Metal Gear Solid characters from the trailer they have released. Most likely this game is a spin-off to Metal Gear Solid V.
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 Motherbase 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 four-player online cooperative play. New weaponry will also be introduced to combat charging creatures and lethal environments as well.
