Even though Hideo Kojima is no longer at Konami, the publisher is working on a new Metal Gear game. Metal Gear Survive is a spin-off from Metal Gear Solid V, and today, Konami revealed a lot more information about the title, including details about its single-player campaign.

Although Metal Gear Survive is being positioned primarily as a cooperative, zombie-killing action game, it also has a full single-player mode. In a new video, game producer Yuji Korekado explained that the mode is based on MGSV gameplay with a bigger emphasis on survival. This will entail building up your Base Camp and ensuring that you collect enough food and water.

In addition, you have to collect materials throughout the world to craft better items needed for combat and exploration. For example, you need to build an oxygen tank so that you can explore outside of Base Camp. There's even a story justification for items scattered across the world: they are sucked through a wormhole from MGSV's world and thrown into Metal Gear Survive.

As seen in the video embedded above, base-building is a big part of the game, and you can build structures, tools, and even farms throughout it. The zombie-like enemies will mount random attacks on the base, so it's important to strengthen it as much as possible.

Today, Konami also announced that a cooperative beta will be available for the game on PS4 and Xbox One that'll run from January 18-21. The full game launches on February 20 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
