Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance to get new Blade Wolf DLC in May

Platinum Games' hack-and-slash action game Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be getting one last DLC, titled Blade Wolf, soon. The lucky people of Japan will get to play it first on May 9, and while there hasn't been any word on when the rest of the world will get to buy it, if Platinum follows the same release pattern as the previous DLC, Jetstream Sam, we will get it in the same week. The DLC will cost $9.99, which roughly translates to Rs 542.

The game will have you play LQ-84i, which is a robot dog you might remember from the original Metal Gear Rising story. It will be a prequel and lead up to the events of the main game.

It's time for the Bladewolf to let her rip!

It's time for Blade Wolf to let 'er rip!


Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is set in the near future, where cyborg technology has become commonplace throughout society. Three years have passed since the collapse of the Patriots system, which has 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 power.

Furthermore, large "Private Military Companies", or PMCs, which were supported and controlled by the Patriots, have collapsed, spawning countless rogue entities with origins to larger criminal organisations. These renegade PMCs employ cyborg technology and have become increasingly 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.
