KONAMI ANNOUNCES NEW ADDITION TO THE METAL GEAR SOLID V UNIVERSE: METAL GEAR SURVIVE
Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. today announced a new addition to the METAL GEAR SOLID V experience, METAL GEAR SURVIVE.
Available on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and PC via Steam in 2017, METAL GEAR SURVIVE is a brand new co-op, stealth game that takes a divergent look at familiar METAL GEAR themes and pursues a fresh spirit of exploration in unique gameplay mechanics.
"We are delighted to announce another exciting addition to the METAL GEAR franchise,” said Tomotada Tashiro, European President for Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. "METAL GEAR SURVIVE will offer a fresh take on the series’ famed stealth elements but within a unique co-op setting that is designed for a truly engrossing multi-player experience.”
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.
But every chance of introducing that variety they either drop, cancel or don't follow through with improved sequels. E3 needs to be amazing from them. (1 Hour ago)
Before we get them. They need variety to bring in new people. Because forza and halo aren't going to do that (1 Hour ago)
@Moonwalker: basically MS say a lot of things but nothing about what they're ouputting suggests any of it is true. Even if they announce new games, or a SO, or recore sequel, it could be years (1 Hour ago)
I think people who want Rainbow Six to have a narrative focus must be the minority. (1 Hour ago)
@AndreasZ94: I don't think of GR as one of those service games is all. And I'm not sure that Rainbow Six would benefit from having a narrative focus is all. (1 Hour ago)
@AndreasZ94: why does it have to be single player *only* anyway? Games like Halo get by just fine doing both. I think there's room for all three experiences. SP, MP, and games that do both. (1 Hour ago)
Going to guess one is the new Wolfenstein and the other maybe The Evil Within 2, hope not. Please let it be Bethesda Game Studios' new IP. (2 Hours ago)
