Konami Digital Entertainment breaks new ground in the famed METAL GEAR series with an new take on stealth titled METAL GEAR SURVIVE. This title introduces a fresh spirit of exploration, unique mechanics and strategic co-op gameplay.
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.
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 4-player online cooperative play. New weaponry will also be introduced to combat charging creatures and lethal environments as well.
In the battle for survival, scavenged materials must be wrought into usable items, gear and weapons if you are to have any hope of making it home.

Metal Gear is an undeniably unique game series that has incorporated the nature of war with an eclectic array of characters. With a nuclear concept that stands it apart from other action-adventure games, it’s classic, and sometimes humorous, approach sees it break down the fourth wall between the player and game. The Metal Gear franchise has been awaiting an new multiplayer game, and Sony’s PS4 now has an exciting CO-OP addition to the franchise in the form of Metal Gear Survive. Of course, you may be wondering how the Metal Gear series can get any better, but the Japanese entertainment company Komani brings you a totally new Metal Gear experience. Metal Gear Survive takes place directly after the final events in Metal Gear V: Ground Zeroes, where surviving members of the Militaires Sans Frontières are transported into an alternate, apocalyptic universe. The aim of the game is to survive by resourcing and developing your Base camp, to fight together against zombie-esque enemies, and to return home to your own world.
If you are a solo gamer, Metal Gear Survive boasts a survival-based single player mode; the greatest obstacles are hunger, thirst and creatures who roam the strange, mist-covered world waiting for combat with survivors such as yourself.
Hunting for food and gathering supplies whilst meticulously planning your base camp are all ways to survive, and to eventually return to your own world. Complete survival missions, collecting raw materials to make weapons to help you ward off an abundance of creatures. This is an intense single-player mode where you must learn when to avoid or tackle mist-engulfed zones depending on the oxygen levels in your air tank. CO-OP multiplayer mode provides you with the ability to experience Metal Gear Survive with friends, or team up with fellow PS4 players across the globe. Carefully work together to clear through various missions that test your combat and crafting abilities.
In this alternate reality, defending the base is a crucial part of survival. However, side missions, that see you exploring the open world, allow you to gain valuable items and weapons to enhance gameplay. Communication is vital between teammates; ensure strengthening of defences and completion of side missions is allocated amongst the strongest in the team. This fierce Metal Gear addition to the outstanding gaming franchise blends classic Metal Gear mechanics, stealth, combat and CQC, with base management and character progression. Whether you’re a long-term Metal Gear franchise fan, or looking for an exciting co-op experience that incorporates close quarter combat with strategy, crafting and survival, then this game is for you.
