Konami surprised us all with their co-op multiplayer spin-off of the Metal Gear franchise, Metal Gear Survive, but the studio seems to know what they’re doing. In a recent interview with one of Metal Gear Survive developer staff members, featured in the latest PlayStation Dengeki Magazine, via Play-Asia, the employee was able to answer some questions while avoiding others.
The questions he answered were enough to reveal some new bits of information regarding a few aspects of Metal Gear Survive, such as the customization, which apparently players are going to enjoy, since “you’ll be able to use several weapons such as the Spear or Bow from the announcement trailer,” as well as developing “your own equipment for your own play style too.”
He continued to talk about if the main character will have a Head Quarters of some sort, and he replied positively, mentioning the announcement trailer and the Mother Base featured in it. “As seen in the Announcement trailer, Mother Base will become the starting base. Enemies will be surrounding the base and may attack at certain points,” he said.
In terms of gameplay footage, Konami is currently “making preparations,” so expect an announcement or an official trailer to be released soon. Metal Gear Survive is expected to release for PS4, Xbox One and PC some time during 2017.
