[embedded content]At Gamescom today, Konami announced the latest entry in its flagship Metal Gear series, the first since the departure of series creator and director Hideo Kojima. It’s not what you were expecting.
Metal Gear Survive is a four-player cooperative survival game, set in an alternate reality wasteland where former soldiers serving under series protagonist/antagonist Big Boss must fight for their lives. Are there zombies? There sure are! In a press release, Konami insists that this game will “continue the pedigree of Metal Gear Solid V‘s highly praised gameplay design,” but it’s hard to overstate just what a departure this is for the stealth action series.
How will Konami explain the significant shift in tone and style for the new entry? Wormholes. No, seriously, watch the trailer–it’s wormholes.
