Metal Gear Survive, Konami’s spin-off from the main franchise, will be showcased at the publisher’s livestream event at the Tokyo Game Show. It will appear at 12 AM PST/4 PM JST on September 17th and can be seen in the YouTube stream below when the show is finally live.
Set after the events of Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes, Metal Gear Survive takes a different direction for the franchise. It focuses on MSF members who were sucked into a wormhole following the destruction of Mother Base and placed in an alternate universe full of zombie-like beings. Along with survival elements and co-op, Konami is promising the same stealth gameplay that made the Metal Gear Solid series so compelling.
At Tokyo Game Show 2016, Konami will be showcasing the “first ever gameplay demo which will include brand new information about the upcoming title.” So if the initial reveal trailer annoyed you, then at least you have some gameplay footage to help you decide whether it’s worth picking up in 2017.
