Metal Gear Solid Rising: Revengeance to have playable build at E3

The first playable version of Metal Gear Solid Rising: Revengeance will be playable at E3 next week, according to an announcement during Konami's pre-E3 presentation.

The first playable version of Metal Gear Solid Rising: Revengeance will be shown at E3 next week, according to an announcement during Konami's pre-E3 presentation.

A video that was shown during the presentation revealed more information about the game's story, which appears to be set in a world of child soldiers and corruption.

Kenji Saito, the game's director, said that at its core the game is an action game that will feel good to play.

"The main focus of this game is slashing, being able to aim your swords exactly where you want them. Having complete control over your katana and how you wield it is the main element," he said.

Players will be able to slash up a wall and use it as a ramp, and slash background objects to use as weapons. The game also has a ninja mode that allows players to dash and jump higher than usual, which means players can launch into an attack even if they are far from their target.

More information will be revealed next week at E3.
