Konami made a promise to the legion of Metal Gear fans worldwide that they would continue the franchise after the departure of its creator and director Hideo Kojima. Konami’s first attempt at keeping that promise is Metal Gear Survive which is actually closer to an expansion of Metal Gear Solid V than a new game.

Metal Gear Survive takes place just after the events of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. Motherbase has been compromised and after the attack the kick starts the events of The Phantom Pain, a wormhole opens up and transports survivors to an alternate reality. Players must find a way back home by using familiar stealth skills and all-new survival mechanics to survive waves of zombie-like enemies and gather food, water and other resources.

More on Metal Gear Survive from Konami’s press release:

“METAL GEAR SURVIVE continues the pedigree of METAL GEAR SOLID V’s highly praised gameplay, with a unique blend of stealth and survival mechanics. Players will be able to experience both a single player campaign and co-op of up to four players. In the single player campaign, players will learn resource management, character progression through base camp development, and craft useful weapons and equipment that can be utilized in the co-op gameplay. In co-op, players will fight with their comrades online to collect rewarding loot which can aid in the single player campaign.”

Metal Gear Survive will launch in the Americas on February 20, 2018 and February 22, 2018 in Europe.
