Konami has confirmed that Metal Gear Survive will not be a full-priced game when the title releases sometime next year.
Konami told Polygon at Gamescom that Metal Gear Survive will not cost the full $60 that games typically run for, but did not specify the game’s exact price. The publisher also opened up a website for the title, which features a new batch of screenshots that you can see below.
Much like Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes, Metal Gear Survive is a companion piece to Metal Gears Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. Set shortly after Ground Zeroes, Survive will follow a group of soldiers who are left behind at a destroyed Mother Base, and are whisked away into a wormhole that transports them into a deserted, transformed version of Ground Zeroes’ setting. It is there that they are plagued by mutated creatures who were biologically damaged during the move across time. Survive will be a 4-player cooperative title that will take some teamwork in order to get through. Konami has promised that the stealth gameplay that the series is known for will still be intact in Survive.
Metal Gear Survive will release sometime in 2017. The game will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
