Metal Gear Survive Beta Available for Download on Xbox One; Has HDR and Xbox One X Enhancements
The Metal Gear Survive beta is now available for download on Xbox One via the Australian store. Weighing in at 8GB, it's certainly not something that will fill your hard drives up.
Interestingly, the Metal Gear Survive beta is tagged as Xbox One X enhanced though KONAMI didn't provide any details on the enhancements yet (and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain didn't receive an Xbox One X update yet). Support for High Dynamic Range (HDR) displays is also included. Here's what you'll find in the beta test content-wise, according to the store description.

Kai was able to try the game a while ago and came away fairly positive that it could be a fun experience.
I was somewhat cautious on the prospect of a cooperative survival title being connected to Metal Gear, but after having played through Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and loving every minute of it, I knew that engine could put in some work. I was already a huge fan of the multiplayer missions to Peace Walker (Isla del Monstruo in particular) and knew that creating a strange synergy with survival and the FOX Engine could actually turn out pretty decently if the team could pull it off. While my time with Metal Gear Survive was brief, every minute of it left me wanting more.
