Kojima Doesn't Believe Zombies Would Fit In 'Metal Gear Survive'

Konami just revealed its first gameplay footage for Metal Gear Survive, it will be a 4-player cooperative game that would put you in a zombie 'apocalypse' incident.

Previously announced at Gamescom, the setting for Metal Gear Survive happens in between after the events of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain. When Mother Base was obliterated, it was presumed that the MSF militias were left out to die. Metal Gear Survive's story, however, put those soldiers through some wormhole taking them to an alternate universe. The new setting is now a barren desert similar to Afghanistan, in Phantom Pain.

The gameplay footage below shows and infiltration mission and a defense mission where the players protect a transmitter against zombie attacks. In this clip, we discover that Fulton is still in use to transport items and enemies, but instead of balloons, it will utilize a wormhole technology. As the zombies herd together, a player takes this chance by throwing a Molotov at them, GameInformer reports.


Kojima made sure to clear any connection to him about Metal Gear Survive which is a supposed to be a spin-off from his masterpieces of Metal Gear episodes. When questioned if there were any ideas or inputs coming from Kojima himself about the latest Metal Gear installment, he simply replied: "That's nothing to do with me", IGN reports

Also on stage is Yoji Shinkawa, designer for character and mechanical aspects of the previous Metal Gear games who also denied any affiliations with Metal Gear Survive ending it with a joke: "If I had worked on that game, it would have mechs in it." Shinkawa is now on board Kojima's team for Death Stranding at Kojima Productions.

What Metal Gear should be

When talking about the zombie topic that Metal Gear Survive now has, Kojima expresses that the Metal Gear games should be all about espionage and political fiction, he then expresses: "Where do zombies fit in with that?"
