Platinum's cybernetic action game Metal Gear Rising: Revengance has finally made its way to a PC release after initially launching on PlayStation 3 early last year, bringing with it the chance to slice up even more fruit (and enemies) thanks to some PC-friendly changes.
One of the main changes coming in the PC port is the chance to inflict even more cuts in the new "Zangeki" mode, enabled through the graphics options. The PC version also includes all three DLC missions: Blade Wolf, Jetstream, and VR Missions, in addition to all customized body upgrades for Raiden, including: White Armor, Inferno Armor, Commando Armor, Raiden’s MGS4 body, and the ever-popular Cyborg Ninja.
Developed by Kojima Productions and PlatinumGames, METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE takes the renowned METAL GEAR franchise into exciting new territory with an all-new action experience. The game seamlessly melds pure action and epic story-telling that surrounds Raiden – a child soldier transformed into a half-human, half-cyborg ninja who uses his High Frequency katana blade to cut through any thing that stands in his vengeful path!
Currently everything seems to be going smoothly with the new port, though there are reports that an unintentional DRM bug has slipped through the dev team, causing the game to instantly quit if the Internet drops out. At this time Konami nor Platinum Games have commented on the situation but hopefully it's fixed quickly for those affected.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengance is now available through Steam for PC
at a price of $29.99.
Konami has issued a post on their official Twitter
outlining that the inability to play offline is a bug, apparently caused by Steam's API. "We are aware of the offline play issue for Metal Gear Rising for Steam and are working on a fix. Please stay tuned for more updates!"
