Konami isn’t going to let the loss of Hideo Kojima stop them from using the Metal Gear license, announcing today an all-new game in the franchise: Metal Gear Survive.


It’s coming in 2017 for PC, Xbox One and PS4, and is described as a “co-op survival game”. Apparently it’s set straight after MSG V prologue Ground Zeroes in an alternate universe. Here’s the debut trailer:

From the press release:

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 Mother Base 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 4-player online cooperative play. New weaponry will also be introduced to combat charging creatures and lethal environments as well.

Um...did they make a Resident Evil game by mistake?
