Of all the Metal Gear Solid titles, the third is hands-down my favorite and I don't think I'm the only one with that opinion based on Konami's recent announcement. Starting today and going until April 24, 2018, you can team up with a few friends and enjoy a special co-op event in Metal Gear Survive that will net you some special Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (snake eater) themed rewards.
While the overall reception to Survive was pretty mild, Konami seems to be somewhat committed to continuing to support the title post-launch. Last month, the 1.04 update added a new co-op mission (Rescue), and this month, the "Encounter 1964" event provides players with at least a little bit of a reason to hop back into the game. Every time you hop in and play the event via Co-Op Play, you'll earn Battle Points (BP) that will unlock new gear, gestures, and other cosmetic goods that have something to do with the third entry in the Metal Gear Solid series. Here's everything you can earn/unlock:
- Accessory: Crocodile Cap
- Accessory: Naked Snake Fatigues
- Accessory: EVA's Fatigues
- Gesture: "You're pretty good."
- Avatar Face paint: Zombie
- Avatar Face paint: Oyama
- Avatar Face paint: Green
- Avatar Face paint: Black
- Avatar Face paint: Splitter
- Avatar Face paint: Woodland
- Accessory: Ocelot Unit Beret
- Accessory: Ocelot Unit Beret [w/ Balaclava]
- Nameplate: FOX
- Nameplate: PATRIOT
- Nameplate: Shagohod
- Cassette Tape: Takin' On The Shagohod
Metal Gear Survive is available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It supports up to four players online in its co-op mode. The "Encounter 1964" event is available to play starting today, April 10, and ends on April 24 around 4:00 AM EDT.
