Konami has finally revealed where the Metal Gear Solid franchise will be going after their crippling break-up with renowned video game developer Hideo Kojima.
Metal Gear Survive looks to be taking place within the same universe as the previous entries in the series up until giant rifts in the sky appear in Metal Gear Solid V. The game seems to be co-op as well, similar to the upcoming Ghost Recon: Wildlands and Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City.
The following comes from Konami’s PR.
“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.”
