If there was ever a time when a company needed to remove the captain of one of their flagships and decided to steer it alone because they felt it was “best for business”, that pretty much sums up the state Japanese video game publisher Konami is in right now as they officially reveal their new Metal Gear game after severing ties with the creator of the franchise, Hideo Kojima. Now the company is looking to move forward and continue the series with new blood… And they are doing just that with a new game that literally looks “out of this world” with Metal Gear Survive – a Co-Op Multiplayer game that looks like MGSV combined with Resident Evil.
Literally taking place after the conclusion of the prologue chapter game that is Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Metal Gear Survive’s first trailer shows a survivor of the destroyed Mother Base being sucked into a portal that leads to some god forsaken land… And he encounters monsters that were once human and hell bent on making him a new victim.
Fortunately there are other survivors who help him out, and a new resistance group is formed from the remnants of Mother Base to combat these “zombies” and make sure they stay alive and find a way home.
I think Konami ran out of ideas. They treated it like noodles, where you add hot water and you’ve got food. They added Zombies and group of survivors and… tada!!! new game, sell it for 70USD.
