Metal Gear Survive gets a release date


The spinoff to the Metal Gear series, Metal Gear Survive, now has a release date after being delayed out of 2017.

Metal Gear Survive, the first Metal Gear game to be made after Hideo Kojima's departure, will be released on February 20 in the U.S., and February 22 in Europe.

When launched, the Metal Gear Survive will cost $39.99.

Metal Gear Survive is scheduled to release in 2018. Today, out of the wild, Konami dropped a surprise. A PC version was also mentioned in the game's initial announcement last August, but was conspicuously not mentioned here.

4x gold plated weapons: bat, spear, machete and sledgehammer. The tweet, which you can see just below, also lists the pre-order bonuses, which include four gold-plated weapons, four metallic "survival" scarves, and the "Boxman" accessory, which harks back to Metal Gear Solid's "The Orange" cardboard box.

The news comes directly from Konami's Twitter account and promises a simultaneous Xbox, PS4 and PC Steam release for $39.99 Dollars. More accurately, Survive is the target of quite a bit of hate from fans who think that the series is moving in a direction that's unbecoming of the Metal Gear games.
