Konami releases Beta for Metal Gear Survive
Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. announced today that the beta for Metal Gear Survive on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is now available for download in Europe. Starting today through January 21st, 2018, fans can experience new features in co-op mode, including new missions and live events.
The now available beta features two maps with three missions for co-op mode. Participants in the beta will also earn in-game bonus items which will be rewarded upon the full game’s release:
- One FOX HOUND name plate
- One Metal Gear Rex head accessory
- One bandana accessory
Metal Gear Survive picks up from the ending of Metal GearSolid V: Ground Zeroes. Players are pulled through a worm hole and land in a hostile world where they look for answers while trying to survive in the harsh environment. Not only will they fight off deadly creatures, but also explore and forage the environment for food, water and other resources to stay alive. Scavenged materials can be used to build weapons, buildings and other useful items, as well as develop a base camp, where crop growing and animal rearing facilities can be added. New weaponry will also be introduced to combat charging creatures and lethal environments, as well as familiar weaponry such as Walker Gears and Fulton balloons.

The focus of this beta is to playtest the cooperative mode ahead of Metal Gear Survive’s February 20 release. There are three missions available across two stages — Wrecked Base and Desert Mine. Unfortunately, progress made this weekend won’t carry over to the full game for those who decide to purchase it. However, participants will earn a few in-game items: A Fox Hound 2 nameplate, a Metal Gear Rex Head accessory, and a bandana.
Leading up to this event, there has been a handful of coverage that I’ve found interesting (and maybe you will too). Konami’s community manager posted five tips for cooperative mode over on PlayStation Blog. From a more critical viewpoint, PC Gamer shares its single-player hands-on experience trying to mentally sort how a proper survival game feels in the sandbox of Metal Gear Solid V. And, in a newsier vein, GameSpot has confirmed with Konami that the Metal Gear Survive needs a persistent internet connection and will have microtransactions.
