Metal Gear Survive deploys to PS4/Xbox on February 20

Konami revealed today that Metal Gear Survive, the 4 player co-op spin off using assets from The Phantom Pain, will release on PS4 and Xbox One on February 20th.

This not-full-price experiment pits a group of players into dire situations where they must work together to survive, as the title suggests.

It is of course, the first post-Hideo Kojima era Metal Gear game from Konami. I am personally okay with the idea of the game and think The Phantom Pain’s mechanics, setting and engine are perfect for this type of game.

Inevitably, due to the drama between Konami and Kojima the game will probably not fare well with fans but hopefully it ends up being a decent spin off in a proud franchise.
