Metal Gear Rising: Revengence To Seek Revenge On PC

Metal Gear Rising: Revengence To Seek Revenge On PC

Konami front-man Hideo Kojima stated on his blog that the game will be coming to the PC.

Metal Gear Solid is a popular, convoluted stealth-action series from publisher Konami. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance was a spin-off from the main series, starring cyber-ninja Raiden, and built around the core gameplay concept of "you can cut anything." It is set some time after Metal Gear Solid IV, and was only available on PS3 and Xbox 360. Until now. Konami big boss Hideo Kojima first stated on his blog (in Japanese) and it was later confirmed in English on Twitter by Platinum Games creative producer Jean Pierre Kellams, that Metal Gear Rising: Revengence will be released on the PC.

MGR:R first turned heads back when it was initially only announced for the Xbox 360. Up until this point, the Metal Gear games had been the saftey-blankey of Sony gamers, and the mere thought of their Microsoft brethren getting an exclusive sent them into a flurry. Luckily, it was soon announced for PS3, and we all breathed a sigh of relief.

The game released on consoles in February this year, and was developed by Platinum Games, the guys behind the librarian fetishist wet-dream: Bayonetta. It received some relatively favorable review scores.

With the announcement of a PC version, MGR:R will be the first Metal Gear game to see a PC release since Metal Gear Solid 2.

No further details regarding the PC port have surfaced as yet, but we may hear more at Konami's E3 2013 presentation. Platinum Games has never produced a PC game, so it's still not known if they will be the team developing this PC port.

Hooray PC gaming.

We're stealing Japan. One game at a time.
Guess it's time to be a smarty and join the PC party. What are the axis powers without Japan and Italy?

In all seriousness I'm pretty happy to see the PC getting more love from Japan. I assume this will be coming to Steam. This would also be a good time to add their older Metal Gear PC ports to Windows 7 and Windows 8. Like maybe a Steam and Good old Games dual release of Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2.

I'm guessing those other games didn't get a PC release because PC gaming wasn't seen as popular then. Now, PC gaming is popular again. New consoles won't do anything to diminish it, this time.

On one hand, this looks like a really fun game - I wouldn't know, I don't own a PS360, but I've seen it on Youtube and it looks kickass. On the other hand, most companies seem to have a lot of trouble with PC ports, whether in-house or outsourced. Guess we're going to have to wait and see.

Depends on the company.

And there's always mods. Mods always fix a game to be better than the console version.

Unless they're games that nobody cares enough about to actually fix.

"The game released on consoles in February this year, and was developed by Platinum Games, the guys behind the librarian fetishist wet-dream: Bayonetta. It received some relatively favorable review scores."

Dear, dear. Not a fan of Bayonetta, are we?

I am less than excited.

Sure it might be interesting, but... its a game from a japanese studio, which hasn't touched a PC in how many years...

...I will be excited if they manage not to blunder the port.

YES! :D

As someone that doesn't own a console and looked at PS3 and 360 users in envy, I must say that this news greatly pleases me!

Holding thumbs for a good pc port and access to the DLC.

While I'm with you on his choice of words, Bayonetta was their most prolific title before Metal Gear Rising. Not many people seem to know they're the ones behind Madworld. Even less seem to have heard about Vanquish, which is a damn shame because that game is excellent as well. They also did Anarchy Reigns and one or two other projects. I never played Mad World but I heard good things about it, especially since it was a Wii exclusive. I'm glad they're getting noticed, but worried it'll turn downhill too soon.

I am happy to see that Revengence is coming out for the PC. It looks like a pretty fun game and I have been wanting to rent it for the last week or so. Knowing that it is now coming to PC I will just wait and buy it instead when it releases. I am guessing and hoping it releases on Steam and doesn't use Game For Windows Live.

Hopefully if Revengence sells well it will convince Konami to put the rest of them on Steam and Good Old Games as well too.

Well...I guess at least this time it won't be a fan petition so when the port is absolute garbage we all can blame the developer.

Shit port heeeeeeeeeeeeeere we come

As long as it's handled well (more of a Mass Effect 1 port, although even that had warts, than a Dark Souls port) consider me interested.

- no hard coded buttons
- good gamepad support
- support all screen ratios without black bars
- flexible resolutions
- no framerate cap at 30
- mouse support in general UI
- REVERSE BLOODY MOUSELOOK

None of that is a big deal for a well developed game ... just like if Metro last light had just developed it's animations for widest FOV with a narrow FOV frustum visible in outline in developer mode for the animators it would have been no problem to support variable FOV. Up front thinking about this kind of stuff avoids so many problems with no significant increase in development time, hard coding everything for some fixed configuration saves hours up fronts for weeks down the line ... it's just so wrongheaded.

I'd like MSAA, but I recognize that is generally too much work for a game designed for crappy post processing AA. Higher texture resolutions would be nice.

Pinky's Brain:
- no framerate cap at 30

The game runs at 60fps even on consoles, so theres no reason for the PC version to have any less.

This is why I never understood the stereotype of the almighty PC master race. PC gamers getting happy about console leftovers. I understand that that the PC has it's own library of good games, I am sort of joking.

Here's hoping it isn't Revulsive!
And yes that's also a real word (I know!)

The stereotype was always supposed to be sarcastic, but some unwitting gamers ran with the moniker with sincerity.

Mind, though, it's usually the niche, genuinely great console stuff that we crave (the Souls series, everything made by Platinum/Clover, etc) not the mainstream exclusive action stuff which we have plenty of already.

OT: I hope Kojima continues its PC support. Already heard MGS5 is coming to the PC, I'm hoping against all odds that a new ZoE comes out complete with a PC port. The more players the merrier.

Now only if we could get Vanquish with proper KB+M controls. That would be glorious.

I want all the actual Metal Gear Solid games released on the PC first. Then I'll think about tolerating Bayonetta: Raiden's Gaiden.

Metal Gear Solid is a popular, convoluted stealth-action series

In other news, the ocean is damp.

As I said in the other thread:

I am so hyped for this. I loved the demo, but I don't have regular enough access to consoles. Hopefully it's a decent port. I don't want enhanced graphics or anything, I just want it to run properly. I'll be happy if it's identical to the console version.

They should have called it: Metal Gear Rising: Revulsive.

nice, here's hoping its a decent port

Let's hope that this ends up being a good port.

SHOW ME A GOOD TIME PLATINUM!

Plus MGS PC ports are really hard to come by. I know that at least MGS1-2 got ported, but we haven't seen anything since, and even though PCs can support blu-ray drives, I don't see use getting the Legacy collection.

Is PC only going to get Raiden games now?
The last one had Raiden and the first one had almost broken controls,as far as I remember it. And the next Snake one has not been announced for PC yet.
However, if that is the case who is up for Metal Gear Raiden?

A lot of PC ports are still good. Darksiders 1 and 2, Max Payne 3, Binary Domain, Prototype 1 and 2 and several others.

success!!! i was wanting to pick this one up for a while, but didn't want to be forced into using my PS3 again so have instead been clearing through my backlog. now i'm glad i waited

I'd rather have MGS3 on the PC. Even after all these years.
