Metal Gear Survive will never stop being a controversial game – especially when Konami doesn’t let the game be what it’s supposed to be, just a general survival title (with no proper relation to the Metal Gear franchise). Unfortunately, the company can’t help but to continuously milk the series, with the latest being a MGS3 content themed event.
The Encounter: 1964 will be a Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater themed event that will run for Metal Gear Survive from April 10 to April 24. The Encounter is set to add new co-op missions and a little bit of more content to the game, players can expect the iconic Crocodile Cap, camo fatigues worn by Naked Snake and EVA’s jumpsuit which players can add to their own avatars. Players can also find a new cassette which details the Shagohod.
If you want to read up more on this title, we did a first impression of the game which you can find, here.
‘Metal Gear Survive takes place after the events of Metal Gear Solid V. The game starts off with a ridiculous amount of cutscene setting up for considering how bland the story is. Mother base is under attack, a portal opens up in the sky and people start to get sucked into this wormhole. 5 minutes in I found myself mashing the ‘skip cutscene’ button because the cutscenes were so damn long and boring. I just wanted to head in and play, not receive a visual thesis trying to link these two clearly separate games together.’
Metal Gear Survive is out now for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
