Metal Gear Survive TGS Demo Map Was Apparently A Rip-off of Metal Gear Solid 5’s Afghanistan Map

Spin off? Rip-off seems appropriate at this stage.

That's lame and doesn't entirely make sense to me. I mean aside from the obvious that they probably want to put as little work as possible, the original mother base was near Cuba was it not? with the rebuild of it off shore of eastern africa?

It does not even make sense story wise. The game's story is alternate dimensions so new maps are a given. Instead Konami simply copy pastes maps from MGS5, adds fogs, changes things slightly and calls it a spin off.

It makes perfect sense to me, actually. Its the perfect allegory. The Metal Gear IP is a shambling corpse that Konami will squeeze for every dollar they can get out of it without committing significant resources or time.

Rip off? Konami said it's part of the MGSV universe what else do you expect? China? Moscow? They will definitely use parts of Afghanistan and Africa.

gameseveryday2864d ago (Edited 2864d ago )

Part of MGS5 universe does not mean they can copy paste levels. You need to understand that Konami are marketing this as a new Metal Gear spin off...a new game essentially. Batzi, you know this as well as I do. Even Rising was a spin off but Platinum did not just ripped off entire levels from previous MGS games.

Batzi2864d ago (Edited 2864d ago )

Rising was a rip off? How is that? None of the levels were part of any of the past Metal Gear games. Even Metal Gear Ray was modified to make it look different. The game won't be full priced either and we haven't seen anything else besides those 15 mins and why would I care if they reused the same map anyway? I am interested in the gameplay and the latter looks fun. It could be in a white room with 0 textures and it would still not make any difference.

I'm not going to hate on a game just because Konami fucked up in the past.

gameseveryday2864d ago

Yep I meant spin off. Not rip off. Regardless it's your opinion. For me, if it's a new game, it needs to have new maps.

Erik73572864d ago

I'm gonna hate on it because it looks cheap and gay and like others say...a copy and paste

i didnt realize Metal Gear Survive had a gender let alone a love interest


yes guy!

Hugodastrevas2863d ago

@Goldby it might not have a gender but it certainly is getting fucked by Konami!

Why should an alternate dimension/reality be in a different location?
Why should they be transported to Antarctica for example? Just because?

Nitrowolf22864d ago (Edited 2864d ago )

No but it doesn't make sense in a story. There's a nine-year gap when big boss is in Afghanistan and to the first incident at motherbase. Alternate reality I get it but why would they locate to Afghanistan, of all the places because that's not where the first motherbase was it was off the coast of either Cuba I believe. In the nine-year time kaz did work to secure that offshore base in Africa for the second motherbase

I don't even think we know if this does take place in Afghanistan this is just showing that they ripped at the map

Welp, no shit.
It's called reusing assets. Get comfy, folks, FucKonami is on it's way to destroy it's own self :) Let's enjoy watching this :3

rdgneoz32863d ago

Yah, they reused a ton of assets. Most of the buildings are direct copy paste from MGSV, and the "creatures" are basically the skull squad's minions (think the skull FOB missions) without their heads... All they've done is basically added minor base building and a co-op mode, for most likely $40...

sdcard4gb2863d ago

I didn't enjoy MGSV as it is, THIS.... thing will be acquired by me only if FucKonami pays me after giving me a free copy XD

I wonder if they will remove the load screens? I kind of hope they do.

"In addition, the game will likely lack the bizarre charm, humor, and depth that can only be found in games that Kojima himself worked on."

If its a remake that stays loyal to the source material how is this an issue?

Kojima cultists are wacky
