Metal Gear Survive does its best to reference past installments in-game, with one example being it the ability to collect music tracks from older entries and play them at a radio station on the base. But on April 10, 2018, it will go a bit deeper with a co-op event based on Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. Konami says The Encounter 1964 will begin that day and run until April 24, 2018.
