Konomi today announced that the next DLC for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be out on May 14 for Xbox 360 and May 15 for PlayStation 3. The North American price for the content hasn’t yet been revealed, but the European price will be €6.99 or 560 Microsoft Points.
Titled Blade Wolf, the DLC will feature a campaign side-story that revolves around LQ-84i, one of the bosses in the main game. The story will take place before the dog-like mech’s encounter with Raiden, when LQ-84i is working for another main game boss, Mistral.
The gameplay will feature LQ-84i’s special abilities and weapons, implying that players will get to step into the mech’s shoes as they uncover the origins of the so-called “Blade Wolf.” Konami has promised “multiple hours of gameplay,” “countless” enemies, and a new boss battle to conquer.
Konami has released some preview images for the Blade Wolf DLC which can be seen below. If nothing else, the new DLC will help occupy Metal Gear fans during their wait for The Phantom Pain.
