Konami begins work on killing Metal Gear with 'Metal Gear Survive'

0

Better than Pachislot?

There's another Metal Gear game on the way, and it of course won't feature the talents of Hideo Kojima. No, Konami is developing a "co-op stealth game" with "familiar Metal Gear themes," set for a 2017 release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

The gist is that it seems like canon, following the story of the soldiers left at Mother Base after it was attacked at the end of Ground Zeroes -- who then get sucked through a wormhole into an alternate dimension filled with zombies. I see people making fun of this premise already, but c'mon, Vamp ran up walls and floated on water. The series has arguably been wackier for years.

But while the premise is par for the course, the rest sounds...ugh. This is essentially the Umbrella Corps or the Metroid Federation Force of Metal Gear -- but likely with the intent of selling microtransactions like "Liquid Snake" skins and "Raiden" weapons.
