Metal Gear Survive Comes to Life With Open Beta

Wanna' try Metal Gear Survive ahead of its February 20 release? If you’ve got a PS4 or Xbox One, you can — now through January 22.

As we get closer to the release of the first Metal Gear not made by franchise mastermind Hideo Kojima, a lot of conjecture around the gaming world has focused on a simple question: Will true survival elements work in a Metal Gear game?

Starting today, Metal Gear Survive will try to answer that question through its open beta. Franchise fans can test the game themselves from January 18 to January 22 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. According to all sources at the time of this writing, the beta will not be available for PC gamers. 

The Metal Gear Survive beta will feature three missions and two maps. Although the maps were revealed to be Wrecked Base and Desert Mine, the available missions were not detailed ahead of the beta’s release.

Any progress made in the Metal Gear Survive beta will not carry over to the game’s retail release. There will be in-game items available for beta participants, such as a nameplate, head accessory, and bandana, but it is currently unclear if these items would carry over from the beta. 

Metal Gear Survive will release February 20 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more news and information on the game as it develops.
