New Metal Gear Survive Trailer Overwhelmingly Disliked on YouTube
Probably not what Konami would have wanted.
The new Metal Gear Survive trailer, which provided the first extended look at the series spinoff following the first teaser, is not going over well on YouTube. The video has a less-than-great like to dislike ratio.
At press time, the video has 1,065 likes and 14,402 dislikes (via Kotaku).
Comments are all over the place. Some said they enjoyed the video, but thought the game might have been better-received without the Metal Gear name attached to it. Others were more blunt in their assessments, with comments like "Konami can't survive" and "#F**kKonami."
The new gameplay video was released over the weekend as part of the Tokyo Game Show. The 15-minute video shows off co-op gameplay, with a team of soldiers working together to defend a base against zombies.
Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima says he had no hand in designing Metal Gear Survive. He also recently said it's odd that a Metal Gear game would have zombies in it.
YouTube comments and dislikes are not necessarily indicative of anything. The announcement trailer for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare was also heavily disliked, but what effect that has on sales remains to be seen.
Konami has said Metal Gear Survive will not cost $60. Instead, it will be "somewhere in the vicinity" of what Ground Zeroes cost at launch, which was $30. The game is due to launch for Xbox One, PS4, and PC in 2017.
Kojima's first post-Konami game is Death Stranding, which is in the works for PS4 and PC. At TGS this past week, the veteran game designer shared new details about it, while he also revealed it will feature a female hero and may come out in 2018.
