Square Enix reveals its new apocalyptic creation, Left Alive

Left alive is a brand-new survival action shooter coming to the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Steam in 2018.

Veteran developers, Toshifumi Nabeshima (director, Armored Core series), Yoji Shinkawa (character designer, Metal Gear series), and Takayuki Yanase (mech designer, Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Xenoblade Chronicles X) join forces to create Left alive’s dark and gritty world.

Not much else is known about this title yet.

Though it does look spectacular, and I expect it will live up to the big names creating it.

The Metal Gear series is one of the most well-known and loved game series and having one of the major creative minds behind it backing this game gives me hope.

As well as this I expect the mechs will look and feel epic due to to the incredible talents of Takayuki Yanase.

I am an avid lover of dark games with bleak futures and I can’t wait to see more of this title in the coming months.

If nothing else this game could hold me over for the next 30 decades as I wait for Fallout 5.
