Metal Gear Survive is an action-adventure survival game developed and published by Konami. It is the first Metal Gear game to be developed following the series' creator Hideo Kojima's departure from Konami in late 2015. The game takes place in the time period between Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. It was released worldwide for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in February 2018. Metal Gear Survive received mixed reviews; mostly positive responses were given to its gameplay, with its rewarding sense of progression in single-player and satisfaction from multiplayer and co-op receiving praise, however concern was expressed over some of the mechanics, with the majority of complaints being directed at the story, characters, and inclusion of microtransactions.
