Metal Gear Survive
Metal Gear Survive

Action 20 February 2018

A spin-off to the popular series from Konami, mixing cooperation-oriented play style with stealth and survival elements. Metal Gear Survive creates an alternative version of the events seen in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeros, in which the oil rig housing the self-appointed country has been destroyed by XOF, a ravenous military wing of CIA. As a result of unexpected worm-hole rupturing the sky, the remnants of Militaries Sans Frontieres are teleported to an alternative, bleak dimension, inhabited by zombie-like monsters and scourged by numerous dangers. Our squad traverses post-apocalyptic locations, fighting off enemies using a wide arsenal of weapons, which includes firearms as well as melee weapons and bows. However, this time the players are cut-off from the support of the mother base – we need to gather the scarce resources, and use them to craft new weapons and equipment.

A third-person action game and a spin-off to Metal Gear Solid - the popular stealth game series created by Hideo Kojima.

The story is set in an African country devastated by a civil war, where the hero faces an army of robots and cyborgs belonging to Desperado Enforcement corporation. Although the title retained some elements of a stealth-action game, its fast-paced, brutal gameplay puts it well within the bounds of the hack-and-slash genre. Raiden’s main weapon is his electric katana – with it the hero destroys elements of environment and dismembers his enemies, thus ending their lives. Thanks to the Blade Mode he can also execute more precise cuts in slow-motion.

Action 12 May 1990

Metal Gear is an action game that at first glance brings associations with classic shooters such as Commando or Ikari Warriors. However, unlike Konami products, they are more focused on surveillance activities, not necessarily manifested by the constant use of weapons. A well-equipped and deadly enemy is better to avoid "quietly" than to enter into an open fight.
