Those waiting on Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
on the PC won't have to wait much longer. While a date hasn't been set yet, Konami has announced that the game will soon be available as a digital download.
Revengeance stars Raiden in a more action oriented Metal Gear wielding a blade that will cut through almost anything like butter. There isn't much said on what, if any, improvements were done on the PC version, but they are looking at bringing the game to play at 60FPS for most modern PCs.
