The first Metal Gear since Konami parted ways with series creator Hideo Kojima just got a new trailer. And it looks pretty good.
Survive takes the open world stealth mechanics of MGS V: The Phantom Pain and adds, well, hordes of zombies. There's loads of crafting, plenty of base to build, and countless opportunities for undead-related hilarity.
The idea of a zombie-themed spin-off to Metal Gear Solid V is both preposterous and the most utterly predictable thing a conservative publisher could have done. But what we dig about the way they appear to be approaching it is the sense they understand it should be funny, and just a little bit janky.
We also appreciate that this self-described gameplay trailer shows nothing but actual gameplay. Maybe there's a future for Metal Gear - and Konami - post-Kojima after all.
Metal Gear Survive launches on February 22. There's a beta starting shortly but it looks like that's only for consoles.
