Metal Gear Survive gets an in-depth single-player trailer

Metal Gear Survive, the upcoming Metal Gear-themed co-op survival title which will also be the first Metal Gear game to be released since Konami parted ways with series creator Hideo Kojima, will have a robust single-player component in addition to its online modes, and the game’s latest trailer puts the spotlight on that single-player mode.

As the above trailer shows, Metal Gear Survive’s single-player mode will feature a fully fledged story experience in which the player can establish and customize their own base of operations, rescue fellow survivors who will then provide services for their base, collect crafting materials and use them to construct things like weapons, traps, and structures, and, of course, slay plenty of the game’s zombie-esque enemies using both stealth and straight up combat. It’s not clear yet how much the single-player component will tie into Metal Gear Survive’s online modes, but the trailer does at least prove that those who’d rather play by themselves will still have a lot of content to enjoy.

Metal Gear Survive is set to launch on February 20 at a $39.99 price point for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Before that, console players will be able to play a free beta version of the game from January 18-21.
