Konami is soon going to release Metal Gear Survive and the ESRB has now rated the video game on its official website. It gives you some more details on what you can expect to see and do when the full game comes out later this year.
Metal Gear Survive has been rated M for mature players over the age of 17. The content descriptors say “Blood, Language, Violence” with the game being tested on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
The rating summary says: “This is an action game in which players help a soldier find a way home after being transported through an alternate dimension. Players undertake missions to explore a hostile world, looking for resources to craft weapons/equipment and rescue other survivors. Along the way, players use pistols, machine guns, automated turrets, traps, and explosives to battle crystalline alien creatures and infected soldiers in frenetic firefights. Realistic gunfire, large explosives, and screams of pain are heard during combat. Large blood-splatter effects are depicted when characters are injured/killed; some environments depict large pools of blood underneath corpses. The word “sh*t” appears in the dialogue.”
Bear in mind, this game has nothing to really do with the main Metal Gear Solid series as it serves as a spinoff. Not to mention the game has not been developed by Hideo Kojima.
The game is quite different mainly because you are facing up against zombies rather than human soldiers. It still has an large open world for you to explore and it utilizes the same game engine as Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
The game itself releases worldwide on February 20th, 2018 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC platforms.
