Metal Gear Survive, a new co-operative multiplayer title set in the same universe as Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, has been announced by Konami at Gamescom 2016.
The first major Metal Gear Solid game by Konami in the post-Kojima era is essentially an alternate universe co-operative zombie shooter.
The story of the game picks up after the ending of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Mysterious wormholes open up in the sky following the conclusion of the previous game. Characters are transported to an alternate world nearly devoid of life save for horrifying crystalline entities out to kill them. Four players will work cooperatively to survive against this onslaught with weapons from the previous game as well as all-new equipment.
Details on gameplay are light save for a note that the title will continue the blend of stealth and action from previous Metal Gear titles. The trailer gives us a good idea of the desert landscape setting in this harrowing alternate universe. The end of the trailer implies that the four players will face something quite large at some point during the game. The current speculation across multiple sites is that players will end up fighting against a Metal Gear of some sort.
Metal Gear Survive is expected sometime in 2017 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Steam.
