A new six-minute video highlights much of what to expect from single-player and the survival game overall.
Metal Gear Survive will launch for PS4, Xbox One and PC on February 20.
As far as gameplay goes, the game seems to control in largely the same way Metal Gear Solid V did. Caskets are dropped off Mother Base into the ocean and the zombie-like enemies are seemingly transported through wormholes into the alternate dimension where the game takes place. You will see what smokelocke in the fight against local zombies, looks like base building and crafting, and also look at some other gameplay elements. The main character, who will look different for each MGS player, rescues survivors from a variety of backgrounds, some of whom may even be part of another military or law enforcement group.
Metal Gear Survive is due out on February 20 in the United States and February 22 in Europe, but if you've got a PS4 or an Xbox One, you'll be able to take the beta for a spin between January 18 and 21.
You can't know if you don't try it out, and a beta experience is the best way to try Metal Gear Survive for yourself and come to your own conclusion. The console beta will run January 18-21 and the game debuts February 20, 2018.
Konami says that Metal Gear Survive will be holding a beta programme, on both PS4 and Xbox One, between January 18 and 21 (as yet, it has not detailed precise start and end times).
