Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance release date revealed
At this year’s Gamescom Konami has revealed that Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be released on February 19, 2013 for Xbox 360 and PS3. Konami also released a new trailer for the game.
While the trailer is pretty similar to the E3 2012 trailer the Gamescom trailer reveals the K-9000, a cyberborg dog which will assist Raiden in the game after it unsuccessfully tried to kill Raiden.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is set in the near future, cyborg technology has become commonplace throughout society. Three years have passed since the collapse of the Patriots system that had been secretly controlling the global power balance from the shadows. However, peace remains elusive. The dissemination of cybernetic technology has triggered instability and conflict as those who control the trade gain increasing power. Furthermore, large ‘Private Military Companies’, or PMCs, that had been supported and controlled by the Patriots have collapsed, spawning countless rogue entities with origins to larger criminal organizations. These renegade PMCs employing cyborg technology have become increasingly more disruptive shifting policy and power at will. As a member of the peace-keeping PMC ‘Maverick Security’, Raiden lives by the mantra of protecting and saving lives. But as the world plunges further into asymmetric warfare, the only path that leads him forward is rooted in resolving his past, and carving through anything that stands in his way.
