Players already had a chance to try out the Metal Gear Survive beta that ran last month, but now players will get another chance just a few short days before the game releases. During the second Metal Gear Survive beta players on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will get to try out the game for a second time, and PC players will get their first chance to see how the game plays on their system.  Today we’ll tell you everything you need to know about the beta, including the Metal Gear Survive beta start time and end time so you can get the most out of your play time.

When Does the Beta Start and End?

The second beta for Metal Gear Survive will kick off on February 16 and will run until February 18. This means that players will get a last-minute chance to try out the game and see what all it has to offer, as well as get a good idea of what kind of content it includes and whether they want to pick it up or not. There’s no exact time as to when the beta will kick off just yet, so keep an eye on this article to see what time the beta will arrive.

Players who already have the beta downloaded on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will simply need to update to the latest patch, though players on the PC will have to download the full beta. Players that enjoy the game won’t have to wait long to play the full game, either, as it will release fully on February 21, just a few short days after the beta ends.

Players who participate in the beta will get to enjoy three missions across two different maps in cooperative mode, which can be played with a total of up to 4 players in the game’s online mode. This time players will also get to try out the new daily missions, and they will also get access to a special in-game bonus after they create their character and play the beta.

Those who participate in the beta this coming weekend will receive the FOX HOUND name plate, a Metal Gear REX Head accessory, and a bandana to showcase on their character models in the Metal Gear Survive online.

Those who played Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will get access to the DIAMOND DOGS nameplate, the MG03 nameplate, the Eyepatch accessory, and the Metal Gear RAY head.
