Solid Snake is returning in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, but not in the way you may think. Snake won’t be showing up with his gray hair and camouflage suit. Snake is coming back as a disembodied voice that lives inside a wooden sword that Raiden wields. This is all a part of the first DLC pack for Revengeance called VR Missions.
The PS3 exclusive VR Missions DLC contains 30 levels and has Raiden fighting enemies without the help of his sword. It’s just be hand-to-hand combat for Raiden this time around. We can also expect side scrolling gameplay.
The second DLC pack will let us play as Sam, one of the bosses in Revengeance that’s a part of the Winds of Destruction. Sam is a cyborg ninja just like Raiden, but one could argue his skills are more refined than what Raiden brings to the table.
The third piece of announced DLC stars the robot dog known as LQ-84i. This is the character that fights Raiden in Revengeance before becoming his ally. This DLC will bring a little more story to Revengeance as well as provide a different perspective.
The blog post from Platinum games didn’t go into pricing or release details for either DLC.
