Metal Gear Survive's Single-Player Campaign Gets The Spotlight In New Trailer

Konami hasn't forgotten about Metal Gear Survive, even though a lot of gamers might want the company to. The upcoming zombie survival game featuring zombies and open-world combat received a new trailer that spotlights the game's single-player campaign mode and what you'll be doing in the game.

The trailer was posted over on the official Konami YouTube channel. And, like all videos from Konami it has received tons of downvotes because people are still quite angry over what happened involving Konami and Hideo Kojima, where he was fired and the production on Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was cut short, which resulted in one of the chapters not making it into the game.

Getting back to Metal Gear Survive... the trailer is six minutes long and starts with Yuji Korekado, the game producer, explaining that the game is a spin-off from Metal Gear Solid V, but with a stronger focus on surviving against hordes of zombies either in single-player or co-op modes.

If you choose to play the single-player mode you'll create your character and start the story as one of the soldiers who get attacked on Mother Base during the end of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. However, during the attack a wormhole opens up and they get sucked in.

In the single-player game, players will have to first establish themselves by using a base camp for operations. Food, water and supplies are necessary, so you'll have to hunt down animals in order to keep on ticking. Just like in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, there are a variety of animals around that you can hunt down.

Once you get the basics done it's time to start upgrading. Find resources and crafting parts around the surrounding area so you can build new weapons, armor, and defenses.

It's mentioned in the video that players will have to go online and play the multiplayer if they want to unlock more powerful weapons and devastating explosives.

Much like other survival games such as DayZ and Rust, ammo is scarce and projectile weapons are in short supply. So, in order to compensate for the limited ammo, you can use melee weapons or craft melee weapons to take out the zombie hordes.

As you progress through Metal Gear Survive, you'll need to complete the main missions and side-quests, which includes eventually leaving the base and exploring the poisonous outside world by crafting a gas mask and oxygen supply.

Throughout the single-player campaign you'll need to rescue survivors, bring them back to your base, and upgrade your operations. You can use the items you acquire in the multiplayer in the single-player mode and vice versa. The game is due out in February for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
