Not so stealthy
Metal Gear Survive was never going to have it easy -- that much has been clear since the moment it was revealed. But now that the game is actually out, players have been keen to express their disgust with one aspect of the release in particular. We are, of course, talking about the fact that you need to cough up real world money if...
Does it deserve the hate?
So, Metal Gear Survive. We've thought for a while now that Survive could be the greatest game ever made and it'd still be torn to shreds by fans of the series, but now that the game's released, we want to know your opinion on the matter. Those who have played Survive seem rather divided thus far. Some critics are calling...
Konami has announced there will be a second open beta test for the fast approaching Metal Gear Survive. Taking place just one week ahead of the game's release, the beta will last for three days, from 15th - 18th February. No specific times have been given. Going by the description on the publisher's website, it sounds like this second test...
Regrets confusion surrounding the game
Last week, we reported that Metal Gear Survive would indeed feature microtransactions, adding gamer-angering fuel to the already raging fire. In an effort to quench the flames, the game's producer, Yuji Korekado, commented on the issue in an interview with Official PlayStation Magazine UK. He told the...
Update: Beta now live everywhere
The open beta test for Konami's contentious Metal Gear Survive is available for download right now, but not in the Americas. For whatever reason, the beta is MIA in these regions for the time being. We will update you once this is resolved. For now, let's have a little look at what's included. The beta weighs in at...
To the surprise of no one
We already knew that Konami's upcoming and much maligned Metal Gear Survive will be an online only experience. We reported as much back in October, where our very own deputy editor Robert Ramsey joked, "Next they'll be telling us it has microtransactions and loot boxes." Well, we're certainly getting the former. Speaking...
Ocelot of zombies
Still love to hate Metal Gear Survive? IGN has just released a new video containing five more minutes of footage for your perusal, and honestly, it's still looking pretty decent. Sure, the subject matter feels like fitting a square peg into a round hole, but let's not forget the foundation of this game is based on Metal Gear Solid...
Beta coming in January
Metal Gear Survive, the co-op twist on Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’s gameplay, has a single player campaign. And here’s the crazy part: it actually looks pretty good. So essentially you’re tasked with completing missions in a sandbox-esque area. Beating quests enables you to recruit people to your home base, and...
Keep digging that hole
Coming off the back of its release date announcement, it turns out that Metal Gear Survive is an online-only game. The information comes from the title's official website, which states: "An internet connection is required to play the game." Just when you thought that hole couldn't get any deeper, eh? Next they'll be...
Following on from Konami's announcement of an announcement yesterday, the publisher has announced that Metal Gear Survive will launch early next year on PlayStation 4. In North America, it hits on the 20th February, while in Europe, it releases on the 22nd February. It'll retail for the slightly lower price of $39.99/£34.99. We...
Get your pointy sticks out
Yep, Metal Gear Survive still exists. It's been a while since we last heard about the incredibly divisive Metal Gear spin-off, and to be brutally honest, we're sure many series fans would have been more than happy to keep it that way. Alas, Konami is teasing an announcement for tomorrow, the 25th October. A tweet from the...
Metal Gear series concept artist Yoji Shinkawa is easily one of the most well known artists in the industry. His work has helped define Hideo Kojima's beloved series since 1997, and if you know Metal Gear, then you've laid eyes on his superb character art. As it turns out, Shinkawa's been busy - but his latest work has nothing to do with the...
Last month, the internet was in an uproar about a supposed sequel to Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, after a '2', which was printed in the same font as the game's logo, was spotted in a Japanese PlayStation montage. As it turns out, the mysterious number was actually referring to the PS3 title's second anniversary. The celebrations...
Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima has revealed that he's looking for an external studio to produce a new version of the original Metal Gear Solid, and he wants it done using the swanky new Fox Engine. Speaking during a closed interview session at E3, Kojima confirmed that he was actively seeking the help of another developer to produce the...
From conflict comes perfection
Speaking in a recent interview, Kojima Productions' Yuji Korekado has admitted that his company and Platinum Games have clashed several times during the production of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. However, far from presenting these tussles as a negative thing, Korekado was quick to point out that the process has...
What's the Big Boss up to?
Kojima Production showed off it's latest game engine, Fox Engine, during E3 this year, and in a recent interview with the PlayStation Blog, Hideo Kojima discussed his future plans for the engine, which include taking it beyond the PS3, and perhaps to the PS Vita. For now, FOX Engine has high performance in developing...
