METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE pits cyborg against cyborg in battle that blazes past every human limit!
“Raiden is contracted for VIP protection, military training and other duties by PMSCs (Private Military and Security Companies) in a developing country piecing itself back together after a bloody civil war. Little does he know that the stage is set for a clash with an enigmatic force of countless cyborgs.”
According to the Konami website, at E3 2010 MGS: Rising was originally planned to be a spin-off of the MGS series but it has since been transformed by PlatinumGames Inc. into Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. PlatinumGames Inc. came on board and the story was changed to take place several years after MGS4, which gave them an opportunity to show what kind of creativity they have to offer to the series. Though, Kojima Productions is still overseeing the games story and is giving visual direction to ensure that classic MGS look and feel, will it live up to the standards of this epic series? Or has the MGS series become another franchise that keeps turning out games that don’t live up to gamer standards? *nudge nudge* RE and Silent Hill series
“Though its exact identity is a step apart from the METAL GEAR SOLID games, the blood of the series still flows within this new METAL GEAR.” Well, i guess we’ll have to wait until the release later this year.
