Get ready for a new spin on the Metal Gear series, as the Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance demo is poised to drop on both the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace on January 23! The demo will feature three stages, offering users to experience first hand the intricate control of the new “Zan-Datsu” combat system prior to the game’s release on February 22/23. A co-production of Kojima Productions and PlatinumGames, this new title takes the franchise into full-on action mode while keeping true to the deep and epic storytelling Metal Gear is known for.
Following in the wake of the events of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of Patriots, the new title picks up with Raiden as the central character. While working with an agency to protect the African Prime Minister, who is looking to create a better future for his Country, they are attacked by cyborg swordsmen. What ensues is a classic tale of revenge and hope as Raiden extracts vengeance on those who stand between him and those who managed to find a spot on Raiden’s bad-side.
The demo gives players a first-look at Raiden’s cyborg body and High Frequency Blade, which can cut through almost anything with total freedom. Already one of 2013’s most anticipated titles, this demo will only solidify what us players can first experience in the new age of Metal Gear.
