Konami has offered some details on the single-player campaign and upcoming beta for Metal Gear Survive.
Firstly, the beta is going to take place from January 18th-21st, 2018 where players will be able to jump into the co-op mode to build, defend, and fight on PS4 and Xbox One. Participating players will also be able to redeem in-game bonus items including a FOX HOUND nameplate, Metal Gear REX Head and a bandana accessory with the purchase of the full game. At this time, there has been no announcement about a PC beta or how PC players can obtain the same bonuses.
Additionally, Konami showed off a new video (above) showcasing basic survival and gameplay mechanics critical to player success in Metal Gear Survive as well as information about gathering resources, crafting, and defending the base camp.
Metal Gear Survive picks up from the final portions of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and is described as a “spin-off”. Players are pulled through a wormhole and forced to survive by foraging for food, water, and other resources in hostile environments where biological threats will do everything to prevent the player from making it back home.
Metal Gear Survive releases February 20th, 2018 for PS4, Xbox One, and PCs via Steam. This is the first Metal Gear title since Hideo Kojima parted ways with Konami.
