Konami announced a new Metal Gear title back in 2016, set to be the first game in the series to arrive after Hideo Kojima's exit from the company in 2015. Metal Gear Survive had a 2017 release date at first, but the game was pushed back to 2018 early in June, with the developer attributing the delay to allocating more time for polishing the game.
Today, Konami announced the game's new release date, with it arriving next year on February 20 in the U.S. and February 22 in Europe.
As evident by its name, the game is a survival title with cooperative multiplayer support. The game picks up right after Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes' ending, with a wormhole transporting the Mother Base, its occupants, and attackers to another universe. Players will be facing zombie-like creatures as they try to go back to the original universe.
Metal Gear Survive will be available on PC via Steam, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Everyone who pre-orders the game will receive a Survival Pack as a bonus, incoming with additional gold-plated weapons, gestures, scarves, face paint, a Mother Base nameplate and a Boxman accessory.
