Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is an all new breath-taking action title wherein the player guides Raiden through a series of beautifully-realized stages. Raiden is armed with a High Frequency katana blade which he uses to cut through anything that stands in his way.

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.
