Konami reveal new Metal Gear Survive single-player campaign details, and confirm January beta.
We’re probably not the only ones struggling to get excited for Metal Gear Survive, but it’s coming, so we may as well not hide our heads in the sand any longer.
Konami has today released a new gameplay video and commentary detailing Metal Gear Survive’s single-player campaign. Producer Yuji Korekado introduces the game’s survival and gameplay mechanics, as well as teasing a couple of action set-pieces.
It’s certainly not looking like the disaster we – and many others – forecast, but we’re still struggling to raise an exclamation mark over our heads.
Maybe the beta will help. From January 18-21, 2018 players can sample Metal Gear Survive’s online co-op mode on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Lucky participants will receive in-game bonus items – a Fox Hound name plate, and Metal Gear Rex Head and bandana accessories – which can be redeemed in the full game.
Players who preorder Metal Gear Survive can also look forward to getting the following in-game items and emotes.
Metal Gear Survive preorder bonuses
- Four gold-plated weapons: Bat, Sledgehammer, Survival Machete and Survival Spear
- Four metallic coloured survival scarves: Green, Blue, Pink and Silver
- Two gestures: “Thumbs Up” and “Happy”
- Mother Base nameplate
- BOXMAN [THE ORANGE] accessory
- Kabuki face paint
Metal Gear Survive will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Steam on February 20, 2018.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
