Hideo Kojima is no longer standing behind his most successful project but, looking at what the developers are giving us, we have enough reasons to believe that Metal Gear franchise will still succeed in following the footsteps of its predecessors.

We already got some bits and drops of the multiplayer content that is coming with this title but, for the first time, we are able to get an insight of what to expect from the single-player campaign as well.

Konami dropped a narrative trailer that lasts nearly 7 minutes and we get to listen to the producer of the game, Yuki Korekado, who explains the basic mechanics of the campaign. The main protagonist is a soldier from Mother Base who is pulled into a wormhole at the very beginning of this trailer and he ends up in an alternate reality full of undead monsters and other....well, not so friendly creatures.

As you can quickly realize and as it is explained by the developers themselves, this is a single-player campaign with a strong focus on survival. As soon as your protagonist ends up in this twisted world, he needs to start crafting his defenses right away and he also needs to hunt wild animals and gather all sorts of materials that will help him to make it out alive. You will also be able to cook your own food and to craft your own recipes too. In order to lay your hands on the best in-game items and weapons, however, you will need recipes that are only obtainable by playing the multiplayer mode.

On top of having the main mission, there will also be some side-quests available throughout your journey. You don't need to complete them in order to beat the campaign but the rewards that you get by doing them are definitely worthwhile. For example, you can rescue the civilians and then use them as your side-kicks inside your own headquarters.

All of this certainly looks (and sounds) promising and, luckily for us, we won't have to wait very long until the game is released as Metal Gear Survive is coming out on February 20, 2018 in the US and, 2 days later, the European audience will get to enjoy it as well. The beta will also be open between January 18 and January 21 but only the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One players will be able to join whereas, PC players will need to wait for the final product.
