Konami has announced a co-op event for Metal Gear Survive on PS4, Xbox One, and PC that draws inspiration from Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. The event, titled 'The Encounter 1964,' is set to launch on April 10 and will run for two weeks.
According to Konami, the event will feature "recognizable elements and fatigues from Snake Eater" as "items such as the iconic Crocodile Cap, camo fatigues worn by n***d Snake, and EVA's jumpsuit can be added to the user's avatar." Additionally, "a new cassette detailing the Shagohod can also be found." You can take a look at the new cosmetic items in the image below.
Metal Gear Survive takes place after the events of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. You play as a member of Snake's army who gets sucked through a wormhole to find yourself in a harsh alternate reality filled with crazed zombie-like creatures. Here, health, hunger, and thirst become your immediate concerns as you venture out into the unknown in search of resources to stay alive.
