Steel Gear Survive disappeared off of the radar just a few months again, however now it is popped up as a gradual blip on the radar, with writer Konami lastly providing a launch date extra strong that “someday early 2018.” Get able to deal with the legendary sequence’ newest spinoff on Feb. 20.
The above tweet comes from Konami, the place the discharge date for Metal Gear Survive has lastly been introduced. Set to reach on Feb. 20 right here within the States and Feb. 22 in Europe, excited troopers can now pre-order the sport. And if you happen to get your pre-order in now, you will additionally benefit from the sport’s bonus “Survival Pack” DLC. This pack contains 4 gold-plated weapons, a pair of additional in-game gestures, 4 metallic survival scarves to put on into battle, a “Kabuki” face paint, a cardboard field that appears like it may be worn as a hat and a Mom Base Nameplate.
To not leap immediately into complaints, however we actually see the place all of that is heading. In an age the place each sport has to have loot bins and extra microtransactions, every part listed above positive does make it sound like the newest Steel Gear sport will boast precisely that.
As for the sport itself, Steel Gear Survive was first introduced throughout E3 2016 and, not boasting a really massive presence at this yr’s present, a delay was introduced back in June. However, whereas we solely knew that Survive was deliberate for an early 2018 launch up up to now, we now know that its arrival is barely about 4 months off.
For these of you who have not been following the sport, Survive is not your typical Steel Gear sport. Fastidiously sidestepping the messy Konami/Kojima break-up and the truth that the latter is just not in any means concerned with the challenge, this new sport is ready in what seems to be an alternate actuality. Within the closing moments of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (itself a kind of prequel to The Phantom Pain) Huge Boss’ ocean fortress is wiped off of the map. As our hero disappears from view, a kind of portal opens up on the crumbling construction, sucking troopers into one other world. That world is suffering from particles from our personal world and what seem like zombies. Yeah, I do know, it is form of insane.
As finest as we will inform, Survive goes to be one thing like Fortnite. Gamers will scavenge for sources, construct fortifications and combat off waves of baddies. We’re undecided if this might be scenario-based, location-based or sport a extra customary story.
However now that the sport has an official launch date, we assume Konami will quickly begin rolling out extra promotional supplies. We’ll let you understand as quickly as a brand new trailer goes reside. In any other case, search for the sport to reach in late February on PlayStation four, Xbox One and PC for $39.99.
