Konami has revealed what the first Metal Gear game without Hideo Kojima's involvement will look like, and it's a co-op survival title called Metal Gear Survive

As reported by IGN, the game is a direct sequel to Metal Gear Solid V prologue, Ground Zeroes, and follows surviving members of Militaires Sans Frontières as they're transported through a wormhole into an alternate reality filled with zombie-like creatures. 

It'll be the first entry in the long-running franchise to launch since Konami's well-publicized split from Metal Gear creator, Hideo Kojima, and it looks like the Japanese studio is keen to put its own stamp on the series.

"Metal Gear Survive will offer a fresh take on the series’ famed stealth elements," said Konami European president, Tomotada Tashiro, "but within a unique co-op setting that is designed for a truly engrossing multiplayer experience."

There aren't many concrete details in the wild at this point, although Konami has said players will have to team up to battle "massive threats" -- with a teaser trailer hinting at the return of the titular Metal Gears.

The studio has also confirmed that Survive will be built on the same Fox Engine that powered Metal Gear Solid V.
