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.

    So sad I’ll be missing the launch for this, I finally got my mitts on the demo a bit today and it just felt nice. Raiden was one cool customer. I’ll definitely keep my eye out on it post-launch and pick it up, VR Missions are awesome stuff.

      2013 is a crazy year!

        YES! Someone who feels my (wallet’s) pain! Don’t worry, we’ll make it through this. Nothing wrong with buying Post release ;D

    Glad as thats the platform ill be picking it up for. Good to finally see Ps3 getting some love on the exclusive dlc front (though id rather exclusive dlc not to exist entirely, at least this time its on a platform that i still own).

      AC3 had exclusive content… PS3 gets a lot of exclusive content/extras. Usually things that actually remain exclusive too. Unlike 360, which is usually always timed.

    F$#@! that I would not support this game if I was a 360 user. Konami games are a bunch of wh*&s who sell out to anyone willing to pay them that extra cash. Oh well… no longer a Konami fan at all.

    • AnimusVox

      You wouldn’t be saying that if it were 360 exclusive DLC :L

      So I guess you don’t support Capcom, Square Enix, Betheseda, or Activision because they so love taking money from MS. Also i seriously doubt Sony paid anything for dlc seeing as MGR is a PS3 exclusive in Japan and the MGS series well known on the Sony consoles.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Oh? Well that worked out since I’m getting it for PS3.

  • LordKaiser

    If these missions are exclusive to PS3 then it’s possible that they are disc locked content. Is this game PS Move compatible?

    Well… That really enticed me to get it since I’m waiting for a price drop or I shorten my to-play list first….

  • DrForbidden

    Ehhh. Me pay extra for VR missions?

    Not bloody likely.

  • Kobracon

    Oooooh VR missions…man that takes me back…glad I own a PS3

      Konami: Successfully putting a price-tag on Nostalgia…

      • Kobracon

        Wait….these are exclusive but not free?

    Awesome

  • PrinceHeir

    while it’s good they brought back the VR missions(been awhile)

    it’s a shame it’s console exclusive :P

    would love everyone to experience the same game, same content.

    exclusives should only be first party(like cameos of Kratos to MK, PS Move compatible, PS costumes etc)

    can’t wait for this!!!!!
