New three-day Metal Gear Survive beta kicks off next week

A new Metal Gear Survive beta begins next week. It runs from 16th to 18th February on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The beta includes three missions across two maps in co-op mode, which can be played by up to four players online.

Expect special daily missions during the beta. If you finish creating your character, you'll get a few bonuses for the full game: a Fox Hound name plate, a Metal Gear Rex head accessory and a bandana accessory. The beta will be the last chance to play Metal Gear Survive early, Konami stressed.

"It's like a nightmare that you can't wake up from!"

Konami revealed the first gameplay footage of Metal Gear Survive today at Tokyo Game Show.

As you can see in the following footage, this four-player co-op spin-off looks a lot like Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. The graphics and setting appear almost identical, only now there's co-op and zombies.
