Metal Gear Solid 3 Event On Its Way To Metal Gear Survive
Series creator Hideo Kojima may not have a hand in the Metal Gear franchise anymore, but publisher Konami still sees fit to keep the series going with Metal Gear Survive. The game is largely a departure from the series’ signature stealth gameplay in favor of a survival / crafting focus. While the new direction may rule out some players, developers continue to provide updates in the form of a new co-op mission, as well as a themed Metal Gear Solid 3 event set for release later this month.
On the date of April 10th, an all-new co-op event dubbed The Encounter 1964 will take players back to the era of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, and feature the ability to earn numerous cosmetic items from the previous Kojima-produced title. Featured content includes Big Boss’ fatigues, Eva’s jumpsuit, and the totally-stealthy Crocodile Cap disguise.

What isn’t known is what else the event will entail, that is, if there even is anything additional planned. Either way, the new MSG3 DLC should please those who’ve been wanting more stuff to do, or at least content that greater utilizes the Metal Gear property. Perhaps this new nostalgic event will only be the beginning, leading to further content from other titles in the series. Metal Gear Survive is out now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
