Metal Gear Solid: Rising is officially revealed to the public at E3 2009. Only a 45 second teaser trailer was shown, and it included little to no information about the game.

2009 info

Metal Gear Solid: Rising was supposed to release the same day as the console versions. Quote from a French game website "Konami vient de confirmer une rumeur persistante depuis l'annonce de Metal Gear Solid Rising : le jeu sortira également sur PC, en même temps que les versions console." Which translates to "Konami confirmed the release of Metal Gear Solid Rising on PC at the same time as the console release."

  • Different HUD for the healthbar.
  • Different stealth kill animation for killing enemies from behind.
