It's a new era for the Metal Gear franchise and it's set to kick off early next year.

What do you get when you take a Metal Gear game, but remove series creator Hideo Kojima from the equation? You get Metal Gear Survive. Konami is, in fact, going through with this and the publisher has a release date set.

Metal Gear Survive has been given a February 20, 2018 release date, putting it right around the corner. No other new information has been given, but there sure are pre-order incentives. Pre-ordering the game offers the Survival Pack, which comes with four gold-plated weapons, two gestures, four survival scarves, "Kabuki" face paint, a "Boxman" accessory, and a Mother Base nameplate.

Look for more information on Metal Gear Survive to show up in the coming months. The game is set to hit Xbox One and PlayStation 4. A PC version was also mentioned in the game's initial announcement last August, but was conspicuously not mentioned here.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
