I got to get my hands on Metal Gear SurviVe for several hours and enjoyed the story and Co-op and here I am to write about my impressions. If you haven’t read my Story impressions please go check that out first to get a full grab on what to expect with this game as it is tied to the Co-op deeply through the resources and rewards.
Check out this video of my hands on.
My video breaks down the core aspect but I wanted to touch on a few things. First I really love how the resources in story and coop intertwine and carry over which give Story driven players a chance to change it up and Multiplayers a incentive to play story. I encourage all to get invested in learning the Co-op just to get all the goodies it offers. There is even Daily, weekly and special events that will happen with some great rewards and materials.
Once you get your hands on this game you will realize that team work makes the dream work and some good coordination will make the experience even better as after a few rounds with the same journalist we started to build a system and pattern to our play and it was functioning tremendously. I am excited to play with friends and Family which the beta is out jan 18th if you are reading this go download and play as the open beta is avaiable on Xbox1 and PS4 right now.
