Watch new Metal Gear Survive gameplay footage from Tokyo Game Show

Konami offers more details on the mission-based stealth and survival game

At Tokyo Game Show today, Konami demonstrated how Metal Gear Survive, next year's stealth-survival game being developed by members of the Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain team, will play. The multiplayer co-op game will include a variety of missions and stages, Konami promised, and today's demonstration showed how an infiltration and defense mission will work.

In the roughly 15-minute demo, four players sneak their way through a desolate, alternate universe map in an attempt to place a distress beacon. The former Mother Base soldiers, who were unlucky enough to be caught in a wormhole and transported to a mysterious, creature-filled world, are tasked with gathering survival materials, battling zombie-like enemies and defending their stronghold.

Fans of the series who played Metal Gear Solid 5 and its Metal Gear Online component will recognize many of the returning gameplay elements in Metal Gear Survive. Players can still Fulton enemies and items, exclusively using wormholes, and develop new weapons. This time, however, players will need to gather resources themselves and build objects like barricades, fences and mounted machine guns at a crafting table.

Check out the video above (and some screenshots in the gallery below) for a closer look at Metal Gear Survive. The spinoff is coming to PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One in 2017.
