The house that Hideo Kojima built. That is the Metal Gear Solid franchise that we know and love. But the man who created the franchise was booted from the company he has worked for all through the years. That company is Konami.
Konami and Kojima have parted ways and since Kojima’s exit, the esteemed developer made Sony his new home.
In fact, he made it clear that Sony was so good to him that he was not pressured into releasing any new games if he doesn’t feel like it. Also, the artistic freedom is there, so there is no pressure from the executives.
Also, according to him, Sony has been so kind enough to give him all the resources he needs to create amazing games for the company.
With that being said, after Kojima and Konami have parted ways, a lot of fans of the Metal Gear franchise asked the question, “is the franchise gone for good”? That is a legitimate question and one that has lingered in the minds of the fans for far too long.
Well, that has been quashed now as Konami has released a new trailer for a game carrying the Metal Gear moniker. That game is “Metal Gear Survive”.
The story of the game revolves around an alternate universe. After the events that transpired in Metal Gear V: Ground Zeroes, a wormhole appeared, opening an alternate universe.
In this universe, players will need to survive the harsh desert climate. But, it is not only the climate that they should be worried about. Apparently, there are zombie-like creatures that roam the land as well.
The trailer is kind of mum when it comes to the details about these zombie-like creatures. The main character is almost going to be killed by this zombie-like creature when a group of survivors helped him by killing the unknown attacker.
The new trailer then revolves around the landscape, the area, and the possible characters that you can use in the game.
According to a short synopsis from Konami, Metal Gear Survive is centered on the past Mother Base soldiers as they cooperate to survive in the harsh environment.
This game is more focused on survival rather than those stealth kills that made the Metal Gear Solid franchise great.
I think this is in line with the gamers’ enthusiasm when it comes to zombie-themed games. The trailer is actually quite nice and it showcases the graphical prowess this upcoming game has.
Also included in the synopsis, Konami said that the game will also incorporate stealth elements as well, though, not as robust as the previous installments.
Furthermore, Solid Snake will not be the main character of the game, which is kind of sad considering he was the original character of the franchise.
Metal Gear Survive is a 4-player online cooperative game that pits you to a harsh desert environment and you must fight and survive against zombie-like creatures.
It would be interesting to see how this game would pan out considering that it isn’t Hideo Kojima who made this game.
This game is probably going to be available on the PC and on other popular game consoles.
