The latest update in the world of Konami & Platinum Games‘ Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance comes in the form of the VR Missions DLC. VR Missions have been a part of the Metal Gear franchise since the first Metal Gear Solid on Playstation. This one continues the tradition with 30 new missions. It also let’s you play the VR Missions not only as the cybernetic star of MGR, Raiden, but also as the dwarf geckos. The DLC will also include a new weapon, the wooden HF Blade, which if the translation I found is correct belongs to the ghost of Snake.
Metal Gear Rising: VR Missions gameplay trailer….
Metal Gear Rising: VR Missions is due for Japanese release on April 02, 2013; although it will be free between March 14 through April 1, 2013 (according to a translation). No word on if it will be available for free in the US and EU regions. The next DLC will apparently allow you to play as Raiden’s nemesis, Samuel and the robotic murder machine, LQ-84i.
