Metal Gear Survive: the new without Hideo Kojima Konami’s the end of the franchise?
Gamescom is being held in Cologne and have already begun the first important announcements occur. Not in vain, for Konami its European territory is Germany preferred because it is the resting place of its headquarters on the continent. The fact is that Metal Gear back … but in a way that many hubierais never imagined.
Zombies and cooperative action
Do not really know if we have a genius of Japanese or not, but Metal Gear Survive is the realization of the conceptual differences that existed between Konami and Hideo Kojima, who was not willing to bring the saga to a point where the they could be confused with Resident Evil by Capcom. At the end of the day, the zombies catch resource and turn them into enemies of Snake (and other characters of the franchise) is something that purists might consider heresy.
According to the president of Konami Europe, Tomodata Tashiro, “Metal Gear Survive offer a new approach to the famous stealth elements of the series […] but with a unique cooperative setting that is designed to take advantage of the multiplayer experience.” Then you have the trailer for the game:
Survival in a wormhole
Do not think that this is a game of small – scale, not at all. Metal Gear Survive will have the famous Fox Engine, released in 2017 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC and collect many of the elements of Metal Gear Solid V. In particular, the argument located after what happened in Ground Zeroes and the Mother Base traveling shattered by a wormhole to an alternate world. It will be there where zombies appear.
The gameplay will focus much on cooperative and seems to be very focused on action, although in the last hours (before the alarm fans of the saga) Konami has come out saying that has much to tell of Metal Gear Survive yet and there will be parts which will be very important not to be seen by the enemy.
What is clear is that Metal Gear Survive is the result of the intention of the company to put the franchise on the path to a brighter future because, Hideo Kojima, surely, was very stuck on old ideas that had been put in his glorious march from Metal gear Solid PlayStation.
Do you think Metal Gear Survive is a genius of Konami or the end of the saga?
