KONAMI RELEASES BETA FOR METAL GEAR SURVIVE
Sydney, Australia – January 19th, 2018 – Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. today released the beta for METAL GEAR SURVIVE on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One™. Starting today until January 21st, 2018, fans can experience new features in co-op mode, including new missions and live events.

METAL GEAR SURVIVE picks up from the ending of METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES. Players are pulled through a wormhole and land in a hostile world where they look for answers while trying to survive in the harsh environment. Not only will they fight off deadly creatures, but also explore and forage the environment for food, water and other resources to stay alive. Scavenged materials can be used to build weapons, buildings and other useful items, as well as develop a base camp, where crop growing and animal rearing facilities can be added. New weaponry will also be introduced to combat charging creatures and lethal environments, as well as familiar weaponry such as Walker Gears and Fulton balloons.
In the single player campaign, players will learn resource management, character progression through base camp development, and craft useful weapons and equipment that can be utilized in the co-op gameplay. In co-op mode, up to four players will thwart enemies together online and collect rewarding loot which can aid in the single player campaign.
METAL GEAR SURVIVE will launch on PlayStation®4, Xbox One™ and PC via Steam on February 22nd 2018.
