Konami has revealed Metal Gear Survive at Gamescom 2016, the first game in the series to not have any input from series creator Hideo Kojima, who parted ways with the company last year following the release of The Phantom Pain. Set for a 2017 launch on PlayStation 4, the new title is a four-player co-op game that takes place in an alternate timeline after the events of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.

Metal Gear Survive will run on the Fox Engine and will pit four players against zombie-like enemies with the aim of surviving the onslaught. Sound like Metal Gear? Well, like previous entries, stealth will be a central mechanic; however, weaponry will also be available. More information will be released at Gamescom as the week progresses.
