Today at the Tokyo Game Show, Konami released the first gameplay footage forMetal Gear Survive. The extended demo, which runs for more than 15 minutes, shows a squad of four players working together to break into a compound and then hold it as a wave of “relentless creatures” come bearing down.
“Using co-op stealth, infiltration, and defense tactics, and special new equipment and weapons, the squad provides a glimpse of both new and familiar survival gameplay elements that form Metal Gear Survive,” the video’s description reads.
Among other things, we learn that you can use the Fulton Cannon strategically, as the character traps a sheep with it. As the sheep hangs in the air, its bleating draws enemies to it, which you can then attack with a grenade or other means. There is no recovery chopper in the world of Metal Gear Survive, but items suspended with the Cannon can be transported back to your base through a wormhole.
Metal Gear Survive was announced during Gamescom in August. It is a multiplayer stealth game coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC in 2017. The spinoff is set in the same universe as Metal Gear Solid V and takes place after the events of Ground Zeroes.
In the aftermath of the attack on Mother Base, Militaires Sans Frontières soldiers are sucked into wormholes along with chunks of the base itself. They are transported into alternate timelines and are forced to fight for survival alongside their comrades. Players will take control of one of these soldiers and team up with others to take on what look like zombies. You can watch the first trailer for Metal Gear Survive here.
Konami has said Metal Gear Survive will not cost $60. Instead, it will be “somewhere in the vicinity” of what Ground Zeroes cost at launch, which was $30.
