Release Date for ‘Metal Gear Rising: Revengence’
February 19, 2013 is when we can expect to finally experience the next installment of the Metal Gear series. The latest press release describes the game as such:
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.
I am a huge Metal Gear Solid fan and I have to say that I was very skeptical about this title before I saw a few trailers. Rather than approaching it as a Metal Gear Solid game and comparing it to its predecessors, I will keep an open mind and most likely enjoy what is shaping up to be an awesome ninja game.
