Metal Gear Survive is expected pretty soon actually, with a February 22 release date. So it's high time Konami showed the Kojima-less spin off's single player campaign, which it has done with a six minute walkthrough video.

Introduced and narrated by the game's producer Yuki Korekado, we get a look at the crafting and hunting aspects of the game, as players are tasked with building up your base camp as they undertake missions and fight off the Wanderers. By gathering resources and recipes, players will, as the title suggests, try to survive either by themselves or with other players co-operatively. 

Konami has also announced an open beta is to take place for the game between January 18 to January 21 2018 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, before the February release.

The video is well worth a watch, and it seems like it might be an interesting survival game, but it remains to see if its Metal Gear universe setting and the loyalty fans have to Kojima's vision of that series becomes more of a burden than they intended.

Carry on the conversation on the VideoGamer forums!
