Metal Gear Rising has exclusive VR Missions on PS3

Plus, play as the much loved, much hated Dwarf Gekko.

The PlayStation 3 version of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will have 30 exclusive downloadable Virtual Reality Missions for Raiden, Konami has announced.

“Featuring a mix of combat training, tactical maneuvering, stealth-based approaches and more, these missions will both provide practice in which to hone your skills in original stages not seen the in the game’s campaign, and feature an eclectic mix of challenges that any veteran of Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance or Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions would come to expect,” said Konami social media manager Dalton Link.

In what the publisher describes as “an interesting twist,” the VR Missions will also enable you to play as Dwarf Gekko.

Pricing for the download content will be announced at a later date. View screenshots of the VR Missions at the gallery.

Metal Gear Rising will launch for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on February 19.

Update: The VR Missions will be exclusive to PlayStation 3 only in North America and Japan (the latter because the game is only for PlayStation 3 in Japan). Elsewhere it’s available, you’ll be able to get it on either Xbox 360, as well.
