Konami Announces Metal Gear Survive
Konami, having apparently pulled their heads out of their asses long enough to realize they were once a video game company and hold the rights to one of the most beloved franchises out there, announced a brand new Metal Gear game at Gamescom. Called Metal Gear Survive, this game marks the first time a game in the Metal Gear series is being produced without Hideo Kojima, the series creator.
The game is described by Konami as a co-op survival game, with the press release reading…
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.
The press release goes on to say that the game will introduce new weaponry to help combat the weird Last of Us unicorns, as well as “a unique blend of stealth and co-op play mechanics.”
When the trailer dropped, the jokes just started pouring in, comparing the game to one of the latter Resident Evil games. The trailer has also been getting bombed with dislikes on YouTube. At time of writing, the trailer has almost 1.2 million views, over 40,000 dislikes, and over 10,000 likes. While not nearly at the level of the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare trailer, which has racked up over 3 million dislikes since debuting in May, it’s safe to say that not many people are happy with this new direction Konami is taking Metal Gear.
