Well, we finally get our chance to play one of the most talked about games in 2017; Metal Gear Survive. Some people say that this is going to be one of the best games in 2018, while others doubt it because it’s missing a key person (Hideo).
Nonetheless, if there’s a beta you better bet I’m going to try it out.
The Metal Gear Survive beta is available until January 21st. However! There seems to have been some confusion in who the beta is for and who cannot play it.
According to Konami, the beta is available for Xbox One and PS4 players until January 21st, however, it’s only available to Xbox One players worldwide (including the US). It is not, however, available for PS4 players WorldWide – it is available everywhere EXCEPT the US.
Not really sure why they decided to do it this way, to be honest with you. Maybe there’s more PS4 players in other countries and more Xbox One players in the US? I have no idea but it caused quite a bit of confusion on their Twitter account!
The beta for Metal gear Survive features two maps, three missions, and live events, according to Konami. Those who play the beta will receive in-game bonuses in the full version, should they decide to purchase it.
Publisher Konami says the beta will provide an opportunity “to jump into co-op mode to build, defend, and fight alongside friends online.”
You should also be aware that if you purchase Metal Gear Survive you will need to play online (you will need to have a constant internet connection) and unlike some games that pulled out of the loot box race, Metal Gear Survive WILL have microtransactions.
I know, I hear the boos already, but hey, maybe this will change before the game comes out or maybe they think that they will be alright offering microtransactions in Metal Gear Survive.
In the meantime, if you are anywhere besides the US and a PS4 player or you are an Xbox One Player anywhere in the world, definitely check the beta out!
And if you are lucky enough to have the PS4 you can also check out Hideo’s NEW project, away from Metal Gear, Death Stranding.
