Metal Gear Meets Zombie Apocalypse In Metal Gear Survive

Konami has announced its first post-Kojima Metal Gear game, and it's a bit off the beaten path. Metal Gear Survive takes place right after the end of Ground Zeroes, with members of the destroyed Mother Base ripped out of our reality and dropped into one much bleaker.

In Metal Gear Survive, up to four players team up to fight off "biological threats" that seem to look and function like mindless zombies. The trailer (via IGN)  even features a scene similar to one seen in The Walking Dead as former Mother Base soldiers clear the monsters from a fence.

While the cinematic trailer seems action-focused, Konami says the game is stealth-based. Metal Gear Solid Survive will be out in 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
