Metal Gear Survive starts from the ending of Metal Gear Solid V: GROUND ZEROES, to an alternate timeline caused by unexplained wormholes forming in the sky after an attack destroys the home base of Big Boss’ mercenary empire. By reading the first sentence you get the feeling that Hideo Kojima is not with us in the new Metal Gear.
Metal Gear Survive is made to look like a zombie apocalypse. You play as a random soldier from Snake’s unit. You sneak through the open countryside, crumble crystal zombies and collect stuff. Alot of the gameplay is explore, gather and kill. You have a food and endurance meters, there is also a counter for hunger and thirst. And it constantly goes down, which means you have to make sure to hunt animals and look for water holes. Equipment and weapons are worn out from using it. You will spend alot of time micro managing.
The gameplay can be very repeating, doing the same thing over and over and over again both in singleplayer and multiplayer. But after some time of playing, you find a routine that work for you and the farming becomes more efficient and a little bit satisfying. Or maybe it’s just me that wants to achieve the end-game base.
+ Same control as MGS V: The Phantom Pain, To be able to play with others
– To repeating with the quests, same quests in Singleplayer and multiplayer
