Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance takes the renowned Metal Gear franchise into exciting new territory by focusing on delivering an all-new action experience unlike anything that has come before. The title brings two of the world's most respected teams together with a common goal of providing players with a fresh synergetic experience that combines the best elements of pure action and epic storytelling, all within the expansive Metal Gear universe. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance introduces Raiden as the central character; a child soldier transformed into a cyborg ninja, equipped with a high-frequency katana blade and a soul fueled by revenge.
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.
Entitled Jetstream, the new content focuses on the character Sam, seen in the full game. The new DLC adds a new chapter to the main game, and delves into the motivation and origins of the character. Segueing into the events of Raiden’s plotline, Jetstream’s side story features Samuel Rodrigues as a playable character.
Sam - AKA the ‘Cool Brazilian wind’ - was a lone swordsman who brought terror and chaos to the underworld in Latin America. Having slashed through the world's outlaws as a part of his training, he arrives in Denver, Colorado. During the course of the DLC, users can experience the events when he challenges ‘World Marshall" to test his skills. At last, the hidden story behind Raiden’s popular rival will be revealed as the user guides Sam through all-new stages within the REVENGEANCE game world, with the intuitive control system of the main game adapted accordingly.
The Jetstream pack will cost 9.99 Euro/£7.99 for PS3 or 800 Microsoft Points. A third DLC pack, focusing on the robotic Blade Wolf character will follow soon after, with details announced soon.
