Metal Gear’s upcoming spin-off title, Metal Gear Survive, has been given a release date of February 22nd 2018.
‘Survive’ will mark the first fully-fledged Metal Gear title to be developed without its original creator, Hideo Kojima. The game takes place after the events of Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes and will pull players through a wormhole and into a dangerous world filled with biological threats. It’s also the first title in the series to focus on co-op gameplay.
Those who pre-order on either Xbox One, PS4 or PC will receive the ‘Survival Bonus Pack’ which will contain the following:
- 4 Gold-plated weapons: Bat, Sledgehammer, Survival Machete and Survival Spear
- 4 Metallic survival scarves: Green, Blue, Pink and Silver
- 2 Gestures: “Thumbs Up” and “Happy”
- Mother Base Nameplate
- “BOXMAN [THE ORANGE]” accessory
- “Kabuki” face paint
Whilst the thought of a non-Kojima MGS might sound a bit bizarre, we’ll have to wait until February to make an official judgement.
