Watch the first Metal Gear Survive gameplay

"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.

There's still a fair bit of stealth though as players can slither through the grass and use fulton balloons on wildlife to bait the undead. Sometimes things get more action-focused, such as a section where the players set up a beacon and have to defend it from an onslaught of zombies.

One new mechanic is the ability to craft defenses, like fences and turrets.

Melee combat also looks like its been spruced up to deal with these supernatural foes. You can now wield a spear and poke it through zombie neckholes.

Some elements from previous MGS games have returned as well, like the healing system from MGS3. Your character now needs to go into a menu and select specific limbs to patch up.

Metal Gear Survive is due for PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2017.
