posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Konami revealed on Tuesday that it will release its Metal Gear Survive game for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 20 in North America, February 21 in Japan, and February 22 in Europe. Konami also revealed the game's "Survival Pack" release, which will include four gold plated weapons, two additional gestures, four survival scarves, the "Kabuki" face paint, a "Boxman" accessory, and Mother Base nameplate.
The game was originally slated for this year, but was delayed to early 2018.
The game's story is set after Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, and follows members of Militaires Sans Frontières who are transported to an alternate universe where they must battle a biological threat. Konami calls the game "a new addition to the Metal Gear Solid V experience."
Metal Gear Survive is the first Metal Gear console game to be announced since series creator Hideo Kojima's departure from Konami. The rights to the Metal Gear Solid name remain with Konami, and Kojima confirmed that he had no involvement with Metal Gear Survive.
Konami's KPE also developed a pachi-slot (pachinko/slot) game titled Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater since Kojima's departure.
