Released on 22nd February 2013, to significant critical acclaim, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance marked the collaboration between Kojima Productions and PlatinumGames. Taking the renowned Metal Gear franchise into exciting new territory with its mix of action and epic storytelling, the videogame features Raiden as its central character and the three new downloadable content (DLC) packs will further showcase the characters the videogame boasts, beginning today.
The first European DLC pack comprises the eagerly-awaited ‘VR Missions,’ wherein Raiden’s many attacks and stealth skills are challenged in a series of virtual reality environments. Designed to complement previously-released VR Missions seen in previous entries to the Metal Gear Solid series, the VR Missions DLC will add thirty new missions to the Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance VR Missions menu. Each new mission is designed to test the player’s reactions, movement and fighting skills.
This first pack will be followed soon after by two story-based DLC chapters. ‘Jetstream’ centres on the side-story of Sam, and features him as a playable character for the first time, while the ‘Blade Wolf’ pack focuses on Raiden’s enigmatic side-kick and its unique story. Both packs expand on the backgrounds of these two key characters, and provide origin stories that segue seamlessly into the main campaign.
All three packs will be available for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, With the ‘VR Missions’ DLC priced £1.99 GBP on PlayStation Network or 240 Microsoft Points on Xbox 360. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.
