Konami has announced the release date for the co-op zombie survival game, based in the world of The Phantom Pain with Metal Gear Survive; they have also revealed the games accompanying pre-order bonuses.
Metal Gear Survive will release for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 22nd 2018 with an RRP of £34.99/€39.99 across all platforms. For those that pre-order the game will receive the Survival Bonus Pack, which includes bonus weapons, emotes and cosmetics.
The Survival Bonus Pack includes:
4 Gold-plated weapons: Bat, Sledgehammer, Survival Machete and Survival Spear
4 Metallic survival scarves: Green, Blue, Pink and Silver
2 Gestures: “Thumbs Up” and “Happy”
Mother Base Nameplate
“BOXMAN [THE ORANGE]” accessory
“Kabuki” face paint
Regardless of whether Metal Gear Survive will be a success of not, especially after the bad rep that Konami has been getting over the last couple of years remains to be seen. However, I have seen some positive words from via previews from some media outlets, so the game might have some hope yet. Though I would say that with games of this ilk, the success will all depend on the quality of the game of course, but whether it can build a decent sized player base at launch and keep those players coming back with their friends to play some good old co-op will be the true test.
