Watch the first Metal Gear Survive gameplay here

Livestreaming in 15 minutes

Konami is debuting Metal Gear Survive gameplay at the 2016 Tokyo Game Show after announcing the Metal Gear Solid V scrap recycling job at gamescom last month.

The four-player multiplayer game is set in an alternate universe following the events of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and won’t be full-price. It plays like The Phantom Pain in terms of mechanics, but “deepened by new survival elements,” which kind of feels like a nice way to say “we’re padding out a Horde mode, with stealth,” but, uh, yeah.

Anyways, gameplay premiere! September 17, 4:15PM JST, 12:15AM PDT. That’s in 15 minutes, if I managed simple arithmetic.
