Check out the Metal Gear Survive single player commentary trailer released by Konami earlier this week below.
Metal Gear Survive takes place in the time period between Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and is set in an open world environment and played from a third-person perspective Providing both single player and cooperative multiplayer modes.
Following the evacuation of Big Boss and Kazuhira Miller from the besieged Mother Base, a wormhole opens in the sky and absorbs the offshore plant as well as the remaining Militaires Sans Frontières soldiers. The soldiers are transported to an alternate reality along with the remains of Mother Base, to find the world full of hostile, crystalline zombie-like entities known as “creatures”. Their goal is to find materials and do anything they can to go back to their own world. Metal Gear Survive is an apocryphal story set apart from the main timeline, similar to the Jamais Vu and Deja Vu mission in Ground Zeroes.
