The Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance demo that Konami promised us last month is now available to download from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace, provided that you have a Gold subscription of course.
The demo weighs in at 1.84 GB and will open up to all Xbox LIVE users next Tuesday. Here’s the sample’s description on Xbox.com (hit the link to add it to your download queue):
“Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance takes the renowned Metal Gear franchise into exciting new territory by focusing on delivering an all-new action experience unlike anything that has come before. Combining world-class development teams at Kojima Productions and Platinum Games, MGR: Revengeance brings two of the world’s most respected teams together with a common goal of providing players with a fresh synergetic experience that combines the best elements of pure action and epic storytelling, all within the expansive MG universe. The game introduces Raiden as the central character; a child soldier transformed into a half-man, half-machine cyborg ninja, equipped with a high-frequency katana blade and a soul fuelled by revenge.”
The full game will be released for PS3 and Xbox 360 on February 19th in the US and February 21st in European territories.
