Metal Gear Survive is made by the MGS5 team, gameplay coming Saturday

Keep up to date with all the new Tokyo Game Show news, gameplay and trailers here

Metal Gear Survive 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 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.
