Metal Gear Survive will be a parallel story, won’t be included in the whole saga

Recently Konami revealed a brand new Metal Gear title, Metal Gear Survive. The reveal trailer left people with a lot of questions, and while many will remain unanswered for now, here are some more details that may clarify a few things.

  • The game won’t be full priced when it launches, it will cost less than $60 (according to website Polygon)
  • The game is being made by the same team that made MGSV (aside from those who left Konami of course) and runs on the FOX Engine. Konami doesn’t want to specify who the director is at this point
  • A lot of people asked for co-op, that is why the team is designing a game specifically around this mechanic
  • However, the game can also be played solo
  • The game is a parallel story set in an alternate universe, similar to the side missions in Ground Zeroes, and thus will not be included in the whole saga. It’s spin-off game set in an alternate timeline
  • The game is meant to appeal not only to MGS fans but to all gamers by delivering a unique gaming experience

After seeing the reveal trailer, some people were worried that the game won’t feature the stealth gameplay the series is known for. However, Konami brand manager Richard Jones had the following to say about this concern:

“Co-op is only one of the gameplay mechanics. Obviously Metal Gear is well-known for its stealth, that is, primarily, what makes Metal Gear. There is stealth in it, I know when you’re watching the trailer it’s all very action-packed and it doesn’t really elicit that feeling, but there will be stealth and one of the really interesting things that we will be exploring and playing with is how stealth and co-op can actually co-exist.”

The premise of Metal Gear Survive is as follows: after the destruction of Mother Base seen in MGSV: Ground Zeroes, the Mother Base staff left behind on the collapsed structure is pulled through a wormhole that inexplicably shows up. Aside from the staff members, parts of Mother Base and items are pulled through as well. Jones explains what happens from here:

“When your soldier wakes up, they are in a desert landscape. A very forbidding, foreboding, alien-looking landscape with lots of twisted wreckage and lots of things that have fallen through this wormhole. So you’ll find half-formed, half-destroyed structures and all kinds of interesting stuff there.”

Since you’re not alone in this landscape, but other staff members are there as well, you have to work as a team in order to survive.

On Reddit, Konami also answered some questions by fans. Some information on the gameplay mechanics was shared:

“In order to survive, players will have to hide (Stealth), collect material and ressources in order to build new pieces of equipment, new weapons and new camps (CRAFT), and sometimes he also has to cooperate with other players to get his hands on powerful equipment (COOP) or to fight against the waves of creatures attacking the camp (DEFENCE).”

About the difference between The Phantom Pain and Survive, they had this to say:

“TPP was a game where you face other soldiers. The development team had already in mind the idea to make a stealth game where the player would have to face non-human enemies with different abilities and behaviour, and where the cooperation between the players to complete difficult missions would be an important element. The development team is really hoping to deliver a new experience, different from TPP, to the MGS fans.”

  • I like the comment about the same team that designed the game… So how much people actually left the company? 😉 And how much of this talent left to design the game?

    • Lamp123

      If you didn’t know already, Sean Eyestone left Konami and he is now at DICE according to Ken.

      https://twitter.com/Ken1555/status/765894528410656768

      • Yeah that could be the case. From November last year:

        “Konami has made the decision to close its Los Angeles Studio, effective immediately, due to the product development resources being restructured into a more centralized unit.”

        http://www.metalgearinformer.com/?p=23067

    • Tom

      Shouldn’t matter as long as they stick to Peace Walker’s co-op design. Fox Engine is more than capable for any new or old team members

      • Lamp123

        Agreed. As Kojima said, Fox Engine was made so the team will have a much easier time making games. The engine’s flexibility will help reduce game development time and costs.

    • Full Options

      Looks like very few of the Japan staff…
      Probably due to a more insular culture, understandable that it is morally harder for many of them to hit the road, and leave a place which is still a famous game industry’s place, despite having the most stupid board of dirs.

      Judging by his linkedin profile, Junji Tago is still FoxEngine’s tech dir.
      Programmers like Yuji Korekado, the art dir Hideki Sasaki or lighting artists such as Masayuki Suzuki are still in their walls.

      It seems they just cut the Snake’s very head… Let’s hope the rest of the body won’t have too erratic moves, so they can at least manage to build something great. Even if all happened in the most shameful manner, it was still Hideo’s wish to have MGS directed by someone else.

      • Yeah, the only worrisome thing is that this series really needs a director who can steer the project under his vision, so it won’t be just a corporate product but also an artistic one.

        • Full Options

          Yeah, such talented director plus assisted by an awesome artistic dir, totally impossible to get someone as skilled as Yoji and that well trianed with the franchise. :/
          Let’s however hope they’ll manage to tie up something decent.

    I find in GAME.UK MG Survive for 49.99£. If this is true, i think that is a very expansive price for this game. What do you think?

    • Could be just a placeholder price.

      • Barret47

    • Tom

      • Tom Brearley-Smith

        As for GZ, when it came out, I bought it on Amazon for £23.

  • Lamp123

    “there will be stealth and one of the really interesting things that we will be exploring and playing with is how stealth and co-op can actually co-exist.”

    This was done in Peace Walker. But yes, we haven’t seen it done in an open world format as of yet (that i could think of)

    • SNKtheStampede

      That was a nice compilation! Thanks for posting it! Solo infiltration is the real thing, PW coop felt very fresh though; that whole game felt fresh and light to me, and coming after MGS4 that was just what the series needed.

    • Future_TraX

      Aw man, i wish MGSV were more like MGS:PW in some way…

      • Leguywhodrownedquiet

        It is
        The ridiculous unrealistic Fulton
        The stealth
        The AI
        The MB development
        Weapon Development
        Tank battles

      • No Place For Hayter

        It’s too similar in the wrong ways .You are not supposed to bring mobile/portable super time sink grind mechanics to a console game, poor design choice.

        It is unsimilar in the wrong ways as well unfortunately, like the cool mission variations and the boss fights, OK I’ll be fair TPP had one amazing boss.

        TPP feels like one step forward 2 steps back

        • Janeo

          Phantom pain had a lot of cool missions but I agree with you about the boss fights, most of them didn’t even feel like boss fights and they didn’t have the same feeling that all the others in the series have. I think survive has the potential to have some really cool boss battles so I’m looking forward to seeing what they do with that.

  • Matrixcity

    Obviously Konami, obviously. I bet someone familiar will have been sucked into the wormhole as well…

  • Well it sounds like this is more of an elaborate stand-alone expansion pack for TPP, so maybe that is a relief to some people. It doesn’t look like this is ‘MGS6’ or anything like that, but rather something to tide us over until the next big thing.

    • Full Options

      Exactly my impression too. A rather more intermediary title than a regular opus. They for sure did not add “Solid” on purpose.

      • Yeah, there’s that, the fact that it’s a spin off with a parallel timeline, the lower price point, the different looking logo, the fact that it used MGSV mechanics, all hints that this is more of an expansion to The Phantom Pain experience focused around co-op.

        • Full Options

          100% correct, plus the fact that it will be released as early as next year which probably does not leave much room for developing something bigger / with a higher price.

  • stocchinet .

    still not buy, sorry

  • Leguywhodrownedquiet

    Why? Well chaccaron maccaron is slang for tubular powder aka cocaine party

  • ADAMJENSEN13

    Maybe it will not be so bad but I think we would like to see something new.
    Like MGS6. New story etc
    Maybe they are doing this to preapare for next Metal Gear game.
    Play survive for year and next e3 we will show teaser for MGS6. Something like that.
    If this will be cheap I might take this but I think I would prefer buying older MGs than this.

  • ADAMJENSEN13

    I also wonder what Kojima thinks about this game? 🙂

    • Full Options

      Not sure if he is at least as perplex as we are, but must have some insiders friends to keep him tuned.
      I think he already knows all this since a while more than us. Some old colleagues / friends shared for sure some infos, would be logical that the father of the serie benefits from such premium infos.
      What’s sure is that Ken does not look very happy with news around MGS, when he is asked for it. I hope they are not too upset.

      • ADAMJENSEN13

        Yeah. And we dont know how long Survive was in production. Maybe Kojima did something for this game and we could never know.
        Or the situation looked like this:
        Kojima shut door behind Him and everyone in Konami : Finally we can do a MGS Zombie game! Banzai!!! 🙂

        • Full Options

          Kojima wanted to realize a zombie game with Guillermo.. Not sure, but perhaps you are right, probably part of Kojima is in this plot. The way the marketing executed tho… Shows definitely the difference with if he was on board…

          • ADAMJENSEN13

            Lets hope someday they would team up again for next game! 🙂 I mean Kojima and Del Toro not Konami and Kojima 🙂

            Cant wait for TGS! There will be for sure some news from Kojima.

            Too bad… But its great too.

  • Gatsu

    Sorry Konami, but I won’t forget and forgive what you’ve done so easily. Anyone who will buy it, hopefully you enjoy :).

    • Lex Radu

      Let’s think for a second, what has exactly Konami done?

      Possibility, just possibility: Maybe Kojima wanted his name removed from TPP, since TPP it’s basically the bridge between Kojima and whoever continues it, it was made to allow a Reboot in the same timeline, without an actual Reboot.

      Maybe Kojima wanted to Cancel Silent Hills, maybe he felt that his Script would work better as a Stand alone Game than a Sequel to a Franchise that select people would play, so he told Konami to cancel it.

      Conclusion: I don’t think there is bad blood between Konami and Kojima, it might just be us wanting to flood our frustration of MG being done on someone, so we choose Konami.

      As for the Pachinko, the only reason we even saw the commercials now, even though this is not new, it’s the Media feeding with our Hate, all for clicks, making Konami a mutual enemy, Media riding the hate Train.

      Think about it, what has Konami done that would not be Kojima’s decision?

      • The pachinko footage was new, that’s why it was posted, not to feed Konami hate to the community (at least, that isn’t the intention of this website).

        It seems unlikely Kojima wanted his name removed from the box itself, let alone from the older games. Then there is some other fishy stuff about Konami as well, such as the Nikkei report, the insider who first broke the story and the fact Konami’s lawyer prohibited Kojima from accepting the award at The Game Awards.

        • Lex Radu

          The Pachinko footage, was it promoted via Konami Entertainment though?

          • It was promoted via Konami’s pachislot channel, but it doesn’t really matter how it was promoted. It’s Metal Gear related, which is why it was reported here.

          • Lex Radu

            Exactly, it is your Job, i don’t blame you, i’m glad you’re doing it, i’m just saying that Konami might just not the Evil we consider them now as, since they didn’t promote it outside Japan, they didn’t even made an English Trailer.

            Just like Snake considered Zero the Evil he actually wasn’t.

          • Janeo

            People should stop hating Konami so much, they bought them some of their greatest gaming moments ever, if it wasn’t for konami metal gear wouldn’t exist and hideo may have never become the legend that he is today. We can’t possibly know what happened between konami and kojima so we shouldn’t just assume Konami are some evil company, yeah they took his name off the box but his name was everywhere in the game, he wasn’t allowed to attend an award ceromony but he was leaving konami. It’s time to move on, hideo is doing his own thing now but the series still exists, if hideo stayed then we wouldn’t be getting anymore metal gear for a long time, the series was never about one man and if people stop hating so much and just give konami and survive a chance then we can just wait and see what happens in peace. I think we should show some respect to the people making the game and let them market the game without all this hate.
            It’s nice to see this site reporting the details of the game without any hate, far too often you see sites present you with news and then throw their own opinion in and I have seen a lot of that with survive. I’m disappointed with how yong has been handling this, he was my other main source besides this site for phantom pain but I think I will just stick to this site only from now on, just feels like yong and many others are fans of kojima more than the actual series.

          • Lex Radu

            This might just be the smartest and most civilized comment i have ever read on this website.

            You’re pretty good!

          • Janeo

            That could be the best compliment I have ever gotten lol so you’re also pretty good. I’m glad others think like me, sometimes it feels like almost every fan has turned on the series but there is still hope, I wonder if the hate will ever die down, seems like whatever konami do the hate grows stronger.

          • TheUppu

            There is also the fact that konami is a company and as such must always think of the best way to make profit. Now that is not to say that it is ok to treat people badly cause you are trying to make money and that they could not have handled the kojima break up better but they must think of their investors’ money. it’s a business after all. what made them think treating their developers and fanbase like that would profit them? why would they do all the things that they supposedly did? now let’s assume the people at konami are sane and rational thinkers, would they not know that pleasing their fans is the best way to make money? would they not know that if they treated their beloved developer poorly the fans would be mad and it would cause an uproar?

            It’s just stupid behaviour that they have not made everything clear to the fans and the fact that they have not is the only reason I believe they are at least in some way at fault. what I believe most likely happened is that kojima wanted to leave the company because they would not give him all the money and time he needed to make his visions come true. Konami released mgs v tpp unfinished to make money as it was taking too long and wasting too much money.

          • No Place For Hayter

            It’s like people don’t understand what reporting news means anymore, lol.

      • Jak

        Well, we can also remember that outside of Kojima stuff Konami hasn’t released a decent game in how many years?

        Plus his comments on marketing vs. acknowledging a single name on the box is pretty telling, I doubt it was an amicable split in anyway.

    Hmm.. Plot still seems bogus as hell but from a gameplay standpoint, it sounds alright. All of those guns in mgsv and being all stealthy makes you wanna stick to only a few.

  • love want 82 love

    nice

  • My problem with this (even though this is a spin off and they are probably developing a next proper MG game anyway) that they choose the most generic-industry standard concept for a legendary franchise. It’s not even a concept, it’s just anotherzombiegame. We are talking about Metal Gear here.
    Metal Gear is ofc a stealth title but it is also a game about an ESPIONAGE. Not just themes, war and great story.
    Konami could make this easily an exciting spin off where mother base soldiers were possessed by some kind of a biological weapon within Metal Gear universe. TPP had already a biological threat where soldiers were turned to smth else.

    Zombies is not what we want right now. Konami refuses to communicate with their fanbase.We want to know what will happen in the future. People every fucking day give them a small chance and they just don’t even care.

        Zombies are a popular thing in games so I agree it’s a great move by konami and it could attract people that are more into survival horror type games along with the usual metal gear fanbase and the new ones they got from phantom pain

    • moto hellogoto

      I want zombies (walking dead fan here). In the quarantined area of mgsv some of the infected acted a bit like zombies and I loved it.

      • Leguywhodrownedquiet

        Yeah but they weren’t random zombies
        They were random zombies you actually cared for
        I’m sure kuntami must have taken the parasite storyline for this shit

    • IStealthierI

      “Possessed by some kind of biological weapon.” To do what exactly? Is that your explanation to… zombies? If so, then, essentially, they’re still zombies, no? What would have these soldiers done, then? Would they be like the dead soldiers every time the skulls showed up? That’s practically zombies… And anyway, we don’t even know the story behind these “zombies”. It could very well be what you’ve said.

      And, I get that your trying to use the “anotherzombievideogame” argument. But against statistics, it’s very weak. It’s weak because compared to most genres out there, including the stealth genre (which btw has more video games than the zombie genre), the zombie genre is the new kid on the block. That’s why it’s weak, if you’re going to complain about one thing, but let another have a pass, how can your argument be valid? Now, unless you’ve played many zombie games and are just tired, I can understand. But that would be your fault. Not the companies. Also, correct me if I’m wrong, but were you not one of the fans shouting from the rooftop that you were done with Metal Gear and Konami after Kojima’s departure?

    • Janeo

      We don’t know much about the game yet so who knows if it’s just zombies, it’s gonna have very similar gameplay to phantom pain so the stealth will be fun depending on how enemies act, I doubt it will just be normal zombies, I wouldn’t be surprised if they have some type of super soldier zombies that it would really be best to sneak past instead of trying to take head on. The more I think about the more potential I see in this game, it will be really fun keeping an eye on your supplies and trying your best not to use too much ammo.

          • Full Options

            Not sure what he may share at TGS will be related to today (TGS is in less than a month, some heavy optimization is required if he want to render a new trailer in real-time).
            He perhaps have more ready stuff to show instead, but still very possible.

            What’s sure is that the pretended Yoji’s villain already has a 3D mesh since they used it to 3D print a statue, and definitely had enough time to optimize those. Maybe we will have an extended version of the trailer more focused on these dudes/robots ?

    This is what happens when the trailer is crap.

    “Crap Trailer get released”
    “People get mad”
    “Konami: No No, don’t worry the game is not all that”

    Then why the hell did you release a trailer showing so? It’s not that I’m expecting a fricking Kojima trailer but come on, how about a trailer that actually represents the fricking game.

    • TheUppu

      most likely because the game was supposed to be just what they showed but due to the reaction they had to come up with the stuff people really want and the release will then be delayed so they can at least on some level give us what they promised…

    I started to play mgo in pc. I wasn’t getting any gp, then I read konami quit the points if you select a match. Then I create an infiltrator character and when I was in level 9 I discover it was an enforcer. WTF? I’m not that stupid to make that kind of mistake.

  • SholidOnline

    Like I’ve said before, I’ll play it and see. There’s no point in complaining since it’s not even out and you’ve no idea what the gameplay is like. I replay TPP, even though I think the story is crap. Great gameplay. So everyone: STOP COMPLAINING. THEY DON’T LISTEN ANYWAYS.

    Lousy Theory: I think Chapter 3 wasn’t cut by Konami, but by Kojima, my theory is that he felt it wasn’t necessary, that would explain the “Truth” too much, that “Truth” is probably a better ending than what Chapter 3 could have ended.

    • Idk wut a Kuvacode Smart Shooter is tho

    • Leguywhodrownedquiet

      So they’re starting production

    • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

      So it’s safe to assume they are capturing some new characters (tests must have been done already), and that requires actors or models, and that means some form of script is in the works or is already present.

      My imagination is running wild now.

          *In Snake voice* 3 Modeling?

          Nah, I meant hire actual people (actual models) to use their appearance in the game, whilst having an actor do the all the performance capture, happens all the time in industry.

          I think Kojima said Venom Snake was made from the 3D scan of 4 different models (including a plaster sculpture) and then they blended them all together and appropriately rigged to allow for animation.

  • Full Options

    Mates, I think I spotted where Boss is hiding… I think he is in Sheffield, South Yorkshire in a Ten24 facility, using a T170 capture stage build. It also fits with the time spent on the road since it is 2hrs with train from the airport… http://ten24.info/

          • Full Options

            I think they are scanning actors for mesh and texture. Boss apparently grabbed consistent data (140Gb), I believe he would not have shared this detail if it was just dummy data, but perhaps it is some tests too..

          • I am pretty sure it’s real data but I can’t really explain why. The file size is imo too huge for just some random test data, they’re already most likely in the production of the game and he had enough time to test out technologies so yea.

          • Full Options

            Same feeling here. Although 140 Gb is big but could be not that big, depending whether it is raw or compressed, however definitely big enough for real production. Maybe various actors / models, various clothing… Again we don’t know what this size could represent depending the accuracy settings they use. I am wondering what is optimized on the fly, but they will for sure require consequent further efforts for properly decimating those surfaces so they become suitable for real-time rendering. Hopefully we will have further glimpses of some at TGS.

    At least Konami isn’t trying to pin this as a ”canon” event by some ultra stretch of the imagination.

      If they would , imagine all the anger it would generate.

      • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

        Well, Randy Pitchford got away for making Alien: Colonial Marines official canon. I’m surprised Konami didn’t at least attempt it.

        • Leguywhodrownedquiet

          That game traumatised me and I didn’t even play it
          That fucking AI thoughhhhh

        • True, but they would make it much more difficult for themselves. Now they can just do whatever they want and call it a parallel story / spin-off (which is probably for the best given what we know so far).

    • How exactly do we know it’s non-canon?
      I wouldn’t call it non-canon just because it’s set in a different dimension.
      Though, you’re free to mock me once the game is out and it has absolutely nothing to do with the story.

      I read some time travel/alternate dimension theories regarding MG’s time paradox screen.
      God I wish I never hopped onto this ruse cruise train.

      • Hoxtonite

        Haven’t Konami said it’s a spin-off, based in an alternate timeline? Most times, alternate timelines aren’t considered canon. Most times. >_>

        • Hmm I don’t recall them saying this is a spin-off. Maybe they did and I just missed it.

          • Hoxtonite

            From this article we’re on right now. :p

            “The game is a parallel story set in an alternate universe, similar to the side missions in Ground Zeroes, and thus will not be included in the whole saga. It’s spin-off game set in an alternate timeline”:

          • Yes but that is what Nyxus wrote, right?
            That takes us back to what I said: Alternate dimension doesn’t necessarily mean non-canon.

          • Hoxtonite

            Ah, I figured those bullet points were from Konami, and he was just plopping them in there.

          • I haven’t seen them anywhere, that’s why I thought it’s what Nyxus wrote/thinks.

          • Hoxtonite

            Makes sense, then.

          • The bullet points are summaries of what Konami said on Reddit (so not the exact quote of what they said). But it really does look like this game is to be considered non-canon, even if they didn’t use that exact word, the fact that they say it’s an alternate timeline and ‘won’t be included in the whole saga’ (which is an exact quote from a Konami rep, see here: https://www.reddit.com/r/metalgearsolid/comments/4y66ns/can_ukonamiussocial_maybe_answer_some_questions/d6mtnlm), and the use of the word ‘spin-off’ is reported by VG247 as quoted by Richard Jones: “It’s a side-story, a spin-off if you will, that takes place in an alternate timeline.”

            Hope that clears things up.

          • Hoxtonite

            Nice stuff.

          • Ah, I haven’t seen that reddit thread yet.
            Thanks.

          • No problem!

          Nah,i can see them making great detective/mystery movies tho!
          But right now i want them to focus their brain cells on making another great season of Stranger Things.
          Also Duffer brothers,the guys who are behind the show,stated in the interview that they don’t see Stranger Things as a TV-show,but as a movie(albeit an 8hour movie),cuz they actually had a hunch most people would have watched the whole thing in one day. ^^

          • Lex Radu

            Which is why i think a Netflix Miniseries made by this guys would be the perfect way to make a live action Metal Gear, and no, don’t adapt the stories done, go somewhere else, like show us how the “Cobra Unit” was created, show the first encounter between The Boss and Big Boss, make a Female Lead Bad Ass Spy Story with Supernatural elements, with “The Boss” as a main character.

            We know how Big Boss became Big Boss, so show us how Joy earned the title of The Boss, show the Dynamic between her and Sorrow.

            There is material in the story of Joy for multiple seasons of Netflix shows.

      • Lex Radu

        Wait…are we sure Kojima didn’t make that episode?

  • Lex Radu

    Conspiracy Theory: Maybe the reason they are not making full Metal Gear games is because Konami wants Metal Gear Movies/Netflix shows, so they put them on hold to not distract our attention with Big Games, instead doing additions like this one.

    Take Ubisoft for example, there is not AC Game this year to not detract attention from the Movie, they want all of our eyes…and Money there.

    • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

      In interesting shower thought, but unfortunately nothing more than that. There is no single piece of information we currently have access to which (by its own merits) suggests that Konami wants to move into TV and/or Movies, in fact quite the opposite. Konami is a business, meaning they have shareholders to appease, they can’t undergo huge and costly ventures like this without informing sharing that information.

        Well, what we know so far is that the Director of “Kong: Skull Island” is attached to Direct!

        • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

          The Metal Gear film? Yeah, that’s just one film though, a film not even in production yet – and the fact that it still isn’t in production (or having issues) shows a disinterest or alternate focus (making video games) from Konami and the people involved in the venture. We also would of seen evidence of this focus in movies and TV in their fiscal report.

          • Lex Radu

            …Till Kojima left, now it looks like they aren’t focusing on Video Games anymore, so if there will ever be a Metal Gear Movie, now it’s the time they can do it!

          • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

            Exactly, here’s hoping.

          • According to Konami they are still focusing on video games, Metal Gear Survive is a new game as well whatever people may think of it. Konami itself doesn’t make the movie, they would just license it out. We probably shouldn’t have too much hope for the MGS movie anyway, it will probably be turned into a shallow action movie but who knows. They might surprise us.

    • Jav

      But you can´t have a metal gear every year, like assassins creed. The next big game will come in 3 or 4 years.

      • Lex Radu

        Probably, and hopefully for the Big Metal Gears they use external developers, like Rocksteady for example.

  • Batzi

    I don’t understand why people are making a big deal out of this. Is this the first Metal Gear spin-off? No. Why would you care if it’s not part of the canon series?

    Metal Gear: Snake’s Revenge
    Metal Gear: Ghost Babel
    Metal Gear Ac!d
    Metal Gear Ac!d 2
    Metal Gear Rising: Revengence
    Metal Gear Survive

    • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

      The fact that it’s a spin-off is not the issue, not in the slightest.

    • You’re right, but it’s probably because this is the first thing Konami showed after Kojima’s departure. So people are probably looking at it as an indication of the future of the series. But it doesn’t seem like it should be looked at as the next big thing, something on the scale of Metal Gear Solid 6, but rather as a standalone expansion to MGSV, a spin-off as you said.

      • Lex Radu

        I think Survive was supposed to be in TPP, but ended up being cut due to budget restrains, so they decided to finish it now!

        • Batzi

          Yea thought so too. It is something that Kojima would include in his games honestly. PW had Monster Hunter.

          • Lex Radu

            Yeah, so it should be treated as such.

    • Lex Radu

      Exactly

    • Jav

      Because we want the missing content in tpp like chapter 3 or “doing something” in camp omega. We just want something for tpp, not this survive shit.

      • Lex Radu

        Chapter 3 could ruin the “Truth” ending. Maybe Kojima took the right choice, after all, it’s all about the Story!

        • Jav

          Maybe truth was in chapter 3.

          • Lex Radu

            Doesn’t seem like it, considering the name “Peace” it was about Big Boss and Venom Making “Peace” with Himself!

        • Jav

          Won’t you like to play new missions with venom in a new map?

          • Lex Radu

            If it adds something to the Story, Yes!

    • Leguywhodrownedquiet

      MGR is canon
      MGR rocks

      • Lex Radu

        Yes and No, Story wise goes against EVERYTHING Metal Gear, Gameplay…HOLLY FUCKING YEAH!

        • Leguywhodrownedquiet

          Yeah but it’s canon I think

          • Well, it depends on who you ask, Kojima himself differentiates between the games in the series that have ‘A Hideo Kojima Game’ and those that don’t. So if you look at it like that the game that are canon are MG1, MG2:SS, MGS1, 2, 3, 4, PW, GZ and V.

          • Full Options

            THX for citing MG1 and MG2 first… Pretty rare delicacy, these crazy days.

    • Lamp123

      Might be because the above games you listed besides MG Survive are new games built from the ground up. MG Survive is just reusing assets from TPP. Also the developers that worked on the spinoffs were approved by Kojima and they worked with him on the MGS series as well. He trusted them well enough to make the spinoffs great.

      That being said, I do agree with your statement. Metal Gear Survive is more of an expansion dlc for TPP with new added mechanics. Also it is being done by MGSV team (remaining members). Although we really have to see some gameplay … not now .. but soon. It might change people’s minds.

  • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

    This is a work of art… Best use of MGSV mods period.

    Anyone wanna possibly take my place as a mod one of these days? Not that I wouldn’t have liked being one during these years, it’s been more of an honor to be honest. But just tired of dealing with some drama and for it to be spreading into Steam too…only because some members can’t follow simple requests and respect others.

    • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

      Awww, Guts… That’s a shame to here. I haven’t been here the longest compared to the rest of the staff here at MB but I’m down for helping in anyway I can.

      But to be honest if I had to nominate someone it would @FullOptions
      level headed, good at handling people and is here frequently. Yeah.

      • Hoxtonite

        FullOptions would be a good one, he’s sensible at least and can mind others.

        • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

          Yeah
          And at least he doesn’t post childish stuff or weird stuff unlike certain persons
          And atleast he wouldn’t be biased as a mod

          • Hoxtonite

            Lol, I see you’re back. Your profile makes it obvious.

      • Lex Radu

        FullOptions has my full support (ba-dum-tsss)

        • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

          Well, I think we have a winner then 😛

          • Lex Radu

            Well, the problem is…where is @FullOptions, his name doesn’t appear when trying to tag him in this very comment.
            Does his account not exist anymore?

          • Hoxtonite

            He posted yesterday.

            @fulloptions:disqus

          • Lex Radu

            Yep, he survived, but it took too long…

          • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

            I think it’s just a glitch, it was working briefly in my original comment but I edited it and messed it up.

          • Full Options

            The Glitch is EYEM BACH, I was just returning to work today and everybody was pullin the h.ll out of me, so discovering this mess right now.. No way Gatsu leave. #gatsuMGILocked

      • Full Options

        Come on boys, you mates are too cool. It is a real pleasure to have fun with you MG diamond brothers. Could do it infinitely, no need to be a mod. Even if everybody was ok, I would refuse this great honor unless Gatsu stays (me black-mailing).

        • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

          True, no Gatsu is like MB without Kaz (the Peace Walker happy and fun one).

          • Full Options

            Yeah, just love this Beruseruku-cracked Dude !!! 😀

    • Wow, it’s that bad? Sorry to hear that, it wasn’t the intention to give you a huge workload. If you don’t feel like being a mod anymore then that’s fine of course, but hopefully you’ll change your mind because you’re probably one of the most liked people here.

      • Gatsu

        It’s not that the workload is huge or anything. I’ve been busy with other fansites for some time now also, so I haven’t kept track of this place much. But I banned leguy again ’cause he can’t respect the requests of others. We’re not all perfect and neither am I, but it’s annoying when I keep hearing of it in Steam also. I’ve done some bad choices imo but I just wanted to put end to it.

        So if you guys think I did wrong, then I’ll gladly give the position for someone else.

        I wish it wouldn’t come to this when there’s no real reason to start bitching to others, it’s like bullying which I can’t stand really. I didn’t wanna do it to be honest, because he’s been so active commenter here and I kinda like him, but well there we go anyway… It can always be removed later if needed I guess.

        P.S. sorry for the rant :(.

          Well if there is a replacement taking place,
          I nominate Full Options and maybe Tong Ninja?? lol

        You didn’t do anything wrong Boss . I’m not the most strict mod imo, so I have a hard time banning people lol.

        I felt like I had to get that out of my system so posted it, I’ll maybe change my mind. Just one of these days that I didn’t wanna deal with this D: .

      I’m pretty sure i’m not the guy for the Job, considering the way i act sometimes on here, i might even be part of the problem, and i’m working, i can’t be everyday here…and as i said, i’m most likely not qualified anyway!

    • People still think Kojima is working for Konami?

      • Oh there’s more than just that.
        I decided to go deeper into the rabbit hole and I regret it.

        • Yeah but why would Konami willingly let their reputation be ruined, for the sake of a marketing ruse? 😛 Seems extremely unlikely.

          • I know….UNLESS KOJIMA IS KONAMI

          • Lex Radu

            For Kojima, after all, Konami is Kojima.
            Don’t forget that Konami agreed TPP to be revealed as not a Konami Game, as a new IP from an Indie Studio, and Konami has pretty much done all Kojima wanted over the years, they never said no as far as i’m concerned.

            Kojima might have done this to create the Phantom Pain for TPP, feeling like he is still there, but isn’t anymore.

            And the way P.T. disappeared from Market, like it never existed, it’s very reminiscent of the “Government” making people that know too much…disappear.

            P.T. had to disappear in order to be relevant to Silent Hills.

          • Yeah, but it’s one thing to announce a game as if it weren’t made by your studio, but it’s another thing to make your company look horrible for months. Announcing TPP as something else than a Konami game was already a big deal for Konami, so it seems like a stretch that they would agree to something like this.

          • Lex Radu

            “Nothing is True, Everything is Permitted”

            Just a theory. All that matters is that we will find out soon if this is the case or not.

          • I don’t know if this has been talked about yet but the beginning of TPP (Literally the first minute, the plane crashing) is probably the end of TPP.

            It’s got to be happening after EP 51.

            That’s interesting, that doesn’t sound like a Chopper at all!

          • Maybe there are actually 2 planes….the first explosion at 0:14
            and then the next one at 0:21

          • Lex Radu

            So does this mean that in the MG universe Psycho Mantis was responsible for 9/11?

          • Maybe. Maybe I’m completely wrong.

          • Lex Radu

            So i guess either Chapter 3 or Survive will end with the Crash. Maybe it turns out that Psycho Mantis came from the “Survive World” that he is a phantom of 1 of the the Dead Snake clones, that came to get revenge.

          • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

            The 2 explosions are explained in the game.

            Big Boss wakes from his coma at the same time as the crash (and the Man on Fire’s awakening). If you listen during the prologue or Truth mission, before the doctor tells the player/Venom/whatever he has been in a coma for 9 years he turns off a radio broadcast.

            If you listen closely to the radio before he turns it off, there is a news story about the DATA from the crash’s flight recorder which explains the 2 explosions. In short one explosion was Volgin awakening, the other was the plane actually hitting the ground.

            “… the administration has now made public the contents of the black box recovered from the wreckage but have stated that the reason for the crash was an as-yet inexplicable fire in mid flight. (First explosion triggered by Volgin, second explosion the plane actually crashing) The search has ended with a confirmed death toll of 94 and another thirty… [gets choppy from here for about a second because of the doctor’s voice]… however [? the only reason the search has been canceled ?] appears to have been the withdrawl from the Soviet army’s fort, and sources suggest this may be part of a cover up or straight… [?]…
            Then there is a pause, there are also suspicions regarding the recent [ ? ] crash in northern Ukraine. Multiple NATO countries have stated that they have absolutely no involvement in the accident and [? that they have gone on the alert ?]. They note that their own citizens were among the… [Doctor turns off the radio].

            They important part is that the plane “inexplicable fire in mid flight.”, and the crash was in Northern Ukraine. This is due to Volgin’s “thirst for revenge” triggering his resurrection as BB wakes up (BB woke up earlier than Venom remember). Mantis (Treji Rebenok) is was held in a eastern european country (like Ukraine), and the biggest smoking gun is the Mantis SFX playing after the crash largely implying he was involved.

            [Listen closely, you’ll hear Mantis making his breathing through the mask sound]
            https://youtu.be/0XoQeSmbujI?t=32

            A lot of the strange unknown things in the game are actually explained, you just have to look hard for them.

    Sure Metal Gear’s story’s been weird in the previous installments. But,
    it’s the characters and their relation to one another that surpasses
    most media outlets out there. I can’t imagine some one who has played
    MGS 1’s Sniper Wolf battle, watched MGS 2’s hand shake cutscene, pulled
    the trigger in MGS 3’s battle with the Boss, destroyed Peace Walker in
    MGS PW, walked Solid Snake through a macro wave corridor in MGS 4 and
    played A Quiet Exit in MGS TPP or that mission on the quarantine
    platform be exited for this! If Konami wants to make a zombie game,
    that’s their business. Don’t call it Metal Gear! That’s disingenuous.
    #Fuckonami.

    • Lex Radu

      I’m still wondering why hating on it BEFORE the release?

      Wait for the goddamn thing to release, then hate on it!

      Besides, Kojima said in 2013 that he wanted to make a “genuine zombie game” so Konami most likely took what Kojima Started, and finished it, to give us, the fans, what was left from TPP, either bad or good, it’s what Kojima would have wanted to be in TPP in the first place!

      • Janeo

        You’re really doing your best defending the game, that’s nice to see. I don’t know why people have to hate on this so much, it’s a spin off and it’s sets in an alternate universe so it is not canon at all. It looks like this game will focus more on creating your own story like you did in the phantom pain missions, creating your story through gameplay but you never know, maybe this game will have an interesting story to go along with it. I really don’t see the big deal, I started playing yakuza 5 a few weeks ago and it’s a terrific game, I played 4 too when it was free a year ago and I really enjoyed that but I rushed through, 5 I am taking time with and I’m really enjoying it. I decided I would play the entire series eventually and I found they have a zombie game too. Yakuza is similar to metal gear in the way that it has a serious story but it also has its light hearted moments and they did a zombie game too that isn’t canon and it’s didn’t effect the rest of the series just like survive won’t.
        Has anyone else here played the yakuza series?

        • Lex Radu

          Same for Sleeping dogs, it has a Zombie Game, and it’s dope.

          • Janeo

            I played sleeping dogs as well and that game really was a lot of fun, better than any grand theft auto game I have played before, it had an interesting story and the gameplay was great. If you haven’t played yakuza then I would recommend downloading yakuza 5 now since it’s free on psn plus for PS3, the story is quite deep and you come to care about the characters, it is a Japanese game so it’s very different than most games you would play which is a good thing.

            Well, i don’t have a console, just a PC!

    Funnily, many articles say that with Survive’s wormhole timeline, TPP does not happen but something else “instead”.
    TPP happens after 9 years coma anyways !? It is the future. Those event are happening right after GZ, full-stop. They won’t be included with the whole saga, but are neither overlapping it at all. It is like this wormhole sucks everything, time, brain analysis capacity, my tooth brush, and the piece of chicken left in my fridge (ah sorry, this last one ended in another wormhole)…
    In TPP, the wormhole is about teleportation, not about time travel. The alternate time-line Konami is talking about should be just between GZ and TPP and not in place of TPP… If Konami wanted they could even include some slight bindings with events that would lead to some TPP’s details…
    Few dudes mix things and many other are just doing copy-pasto nuts info as usual.
