Beta get prepared.
Metal Gear Survive will hold an open beta on PS4 and Xbox One from January 18-21. No PC beta has been announced.
The beta will allow players to enter a co-op mode that sees them “build, defend and fight alongside friends online.” Playing the beta earns players bonus items in the full game upon release, including a FOX HOUND name plate, a Metal Gear Rex Head accessory and a bandana accessory.
The announcement comes alongside a new gameplay video, which explains the basics of the game’s survival mechanics:
The wave-based, survival-focused Metal Gear spin-off was announced last year to some confusion. We’ve since said that it seems not to understand the series’ strengths.
We’ll find out for sure just what Survive has to offer when it’s released on February 20, 2018.
Joe Skrebels is IGN’s UK News Editor, and he thinks just doesn’t think a bandana is enough reward for fighting crystal-headed zombie monsters. He could go out and buy a bandana right now without having to cave anyone’s head in. Follow him on Twitter.
