Konami will reveal the first gameplay footage of Metal Gear Survive this weekend as part of its presence at TGS 2016, the publisher has announced.
A surprise unveiled during this year’s Gamescom, the Metal Gear Solid V spinoff is set to be the very first entry in the franchise to be released since the departure of series creator Hideo Kojima, although we can’t imagine the industry legend is too concerned about the direction Konami are taking his brainchild in; he’s no doubt hard at work on his newest project.
Besides the upcoming reveal announcement, Konami also confirmed that Metal Gear Survive is being developed by several “members from the original MGSV: TPP production team,” an interesting revelation, to be sure, considering the less-than-stellar reception the latter half of that title received.
As of now, all we really know about Metal Gear Survive is that it takes place between Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain and centres around the soldiers left behind in the aftermath of Mother Base’s destruction. Judging by the original trailer though, it seems that events take a decidedly absurd turn after Big Boss escapes the off-shore installation, as all remaining survivors get sucked into a nightmarish alternate dimension that’s inhabited by equally terrifying humanoids.
