Remember back in Metal Gear Solid 4 when Altair was an unlockable costume for Solid Snake? Well it seems that Raiden from Metal Gear will be going through a VR mission in Rome to prepare for his mission in Metal Gear Rising.
Joystiq confirmed on November 3rd that the Raiden costume will be unlockable in Brotherhood after players complete the Animus “virtual training” missions in the game (virtual training…..VR Missions hmmm). This means that players can complete the training and then play the Brotherhood campaign from start to finish as Raiden.
Maybe this will tide over Metal Gear fans that also play Assassin’s Creed and keep them satisfied until Rising comes out (and yet we’re still waiting on a date to be announced).
