It may not be the first Metal Gear title you’ll ever want to play, but for free, and to save up for a rainy day, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will just about do.
Available to download for absolutely nothing on Xbox 360 and Xbox One (thanks to the power of Backwards Compatibility) is Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Stripped of its price tag due to the Xbox Games With Gold scheme, Revengeance attempted to take the Metal Gear series in a new direction when it released back in 2013, focusing on an all-action style to deliver a fresh experience to Metal Gear fans.
Throwing gamers into the world of Raiden – a child soldier who was transformed into a half-man, half-machine ninja – Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance ensured that a decently deep story, lovely visuals, and eye-opening cutscenes was to be had by all. And right now all of those elements are coming together again – free of charge.
Should you be a newcomer to the Metal Gear franchise and wish to take in the wonders of Revengeance, then the freeness that is delivered thanks to the Xbox Games With Gold scheme for March 2019 shouldn’t be ignored. It won’t be around for long though, with just a stripped down price in place until the end of March – after which you’ll be expected to pay the usual £14.99.
