Woooo – there’s a new Metal Gear game coming out next month! Boooo – it’s a zombie survival game. Metal Gear Survive is Konami’s new Metal Gear V spinoff, which swaps shooty men and paramilitary politics for clawy zombies and weird dimensional rifts.

It’s a premise that’s easy to scoff at, and arguably an unimaginative step for the series to take. But you know what? The sneaking, crafting and base building on display in the latest trailer – and a more detailed one from a few weeks back – look compelling enough to make me think that it might be worth giving the game a chance after all.

Metal Gear Survive shambles towards a Feburary launch

metal gear survive

Been a while since we heard from Metal Gear Survive, Konami’s co-op focused Metal Gear V spinoff. It was originally slated for a 2017 launch, Konami fell silent while estranged series director Hideo Kojima started his own independent studio, which I’m still half-convinced is just an excuse to hang out with Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen

Admit it, you’d do it too.

While perhaps a little late to cash in on the Zombie Survival Sandbox zeitgeist, Metal Gear Survive is alive and kicking, or at least slowly shambling closer. Today, Konami announced a release date for the game (February 20th – 22nd in Europe), along with a handful of perks for those bold enough to preorder.

As Old Father Time grabs his sickle and prepares to take ailing 2016 around the back of the barn for a big sleep, we’re looking to the future. The mewling pup that goes by the name 2017 will come into the world soon and we must prepare ourselves for its arrival. Here at RPS, our preparations come in the form of this enormous preview feature, which contains details on more than a hundred of the exciting games that are coming our way over the next twelve months. 2016 was a good one – in the world of games at least – but, ever the optimists, we’re hoping next year will be even better.

Fulton Risen Blues: Metal Gear Survive

If the very mention of Metal Gear Survive [official site], an MGS V cooperative zombie survival spin-off, makes you fume and spit like a malfunctioning furnace, the fifteen minutes of in-game footage below might not convince you to reconsider. I’m willing to give it a chance though, partly because the wide open spaces of The Phantom Pain seem well-suited to spotting of distant hordes, but mostly because the video shows the Fulton dragging zombies and sheep alike through a sky portal back to Hell.
