The third piece of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance DLC will be hitting both the PSN and XBLM May 17th. For those not in the know, this dlc has the player in control of Blade Wolf, robo-hound pal of both Raiden and Jetstream Sam. The DLC will take place during the time before Blade Wolf fights Raiden, back when he was working under Mistral. It’s a little difficult imagining how this DLC will play and control, at least with Sam we could figure he’d play similar to Raiden, but this thing is a damned robotic wolf with a chainsaw tail!! Regardless of whether or not we can understand how it’s going to control, if anyone can make it feel amazing, it’s Platinum Games.
Two new game videos were released today for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. The first video shows off a fight against a gorilla based enemy. What interest is that the enemy’s moveset changes whenever you cut off a limb. If the enemy loses an arm, it’ll try to get Raiden into a headlock. If the enemy loses both arms, it gonna dropkick your ass. Also, an old friend returns, and just in time for Cinco de Mayo it seems.
We get to see a Metal Gear Ray boss battle in the second video. It seems like the strategy is to avoid missile and laser blasts (very Godzilla like) while trying to cut off pieces of armor and limbs. The slow down sword frenzy mode looks to be crucial. There are a few quick time events, but nothing too extreme, meaning that the game won’t play itself.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be released on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 in the US on February 19, 2013.
