Metal Gear Rising DLC to Feature Additional Playable Character

June 19, 2012Written by Alex Osborn

While the action-centric take on Konami’s upcoming Metal Gear spinoff may have a few fans uninterested, the insane story and cast of characters may just be enough to rope the skeptics back in. In fact, the first pack of downloadable content will let players jump in the of shoes of a different character from the Metal Gear universe.

Yuji Korekado, the producer at Platinum Games made this DLC-related announcement for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance during an interview with GameTrailers, in which he said:

Right now we don’t have any plans for competitive online play or anything like that. However, we do have plans for some downloadable content after the release of the game that will allow you to play as a different character or experience different types of missions.

It’s important to note that Revengeance takes place an entire decade after the events of MGS4, so it’s hard to imagine how Solid Snake could possibly a playable character. In addition, Platinum has confirmed that Vamp will not make an appearance in the game.
