So with TGS under way we can learn a bit more about what’s going on in MGR:Revengance, this new trailer was released detailing whats happened and the challenges for Raiden ahead. Roughly three to four years after the incidents in Metal Gear Solid 4, Raiden has joined a private military company to serve under the Prime Minster of an un-named country. They’re attacked by a Desperado Enterprises, another PMC group linked with various terrorist incidents across the nation who kill the Prime Minister and leave him half dead. Afterwards he joins up with Maverick Security, he’s backed up by a team of experts in traditional Metal Gear fashion who will be providing players intel support via an improved codec system that works very similar to the communications screens in Dead Space.
Also in traditional Metal Gear fashion, are five bosses that are major players of Desperado Enterprises. Sundowner who is leader of the team with a heavily customized cyborg body, Mistral a female cyborg who uses multiple arms as weapons, Monsoon a ninja who’s sliced body can be manipulated over long distances and Samuel Rodrigues who plays Raiden’s rival who will influence him as the game progresses. Together they form the “Winds of Destruction”, as their named after various seasonal winds. Oh, and there’s BladeWolf, their canine killing robot who you can recruit later after defeating him. This trailer also shows of some extra gameplay features, such as a stealth killing enemies and cameras to gain the upper hand, controlling Scarab robots do take out enemies quietly, and possibly a new metal gear? We’ll just have to wait until its release on February 21st to find out more!
