Metal Gear Survive (opens in new tab) might seem like a far cry from your standard Metal Gear Solid game, what with its focus on survival gameplay mechanics and co-op over infiltration and someone with the codename "Snake". But Konami has revealed that the development on Metal Gear Survive is being led by members of the original Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain (opens in new tab) team (sans Hideo Kojima, of course), and gameplay footage will be livestreamed from the Tokyo Game Show, giving us all a chance to judge it a bit more fairly.
The stream starts at 4:15pm JST on Saturday, which translates to 2:15am GMT. Meanwhile, those of us in the western hemisphere will get to see the future of the Metal Gear franchise from the future, as 4:15pm JST on Saturday is 10:15pm Eastern on Friday. Trippy.
We'll see how Metal Gear can survive (I'm sorry) without its creator soon.
