By Ishaan . November 5, 2013 . 9:00am

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance’s DLC is now free on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Konami have announced. The game’s two DLC episodes, Jetstream and Blade Wolf, can be downloaded free of cost.

 

Additionally, the price of Metal Gear Rising itself has been reduced to $30.

 

Metal Gear Rising is also headed to PC at some point in the future, but Konami haven’t announced a release date for the PC version yet.

    ….Wait, why do I still see the prices? Are you sure this actually happened or is this a glitch? No prices have been reduced and the additional character DLC cost is still there.

    Or is this only in a specific region?

    • Ninastars

      I think you just need to wait for the store to update first before the changes apply.

      I really hope it isn’t just for the US. It felt like a rip-off when the US got the VR Missions DLC for free but it was paid here.

      • Kaihedgie

        I JUST updated the store :T

        • Ninastars

          The store updates on Wednesdays or Thurdays depending on the region usually.

          • Kaihedgie

            Why am I still getting downvotes

          • icup

            cause you need a 2d waifu avatar… like mine. :/

    • Brandonmkii

      Well, since the article mentions USD, it’s probably North America at least. And if you are in North America, the psn store won’t update until later today.

      • Kaihedgie

        I am in NA :V

        • icup

          it’s already updated. and i just downloaded it… for FREE!!!

    • AlteisenX

      It probably hasn’t taken effect until PSN updates, if its Xbox too, dunno.

    Fuck….yes

    • Ric Vazquez

      LOL

  • Luke Blackwood

    Is this an American PSN/XBOX Live thing only? Because on Brazillian PSN it is still costing the normal game price and the DLCs are still priced :/

    • DesmaX

      The store hasn’t updated yet.

      It’s still priced on the US store here (Checked on the browser version)

      • Luke Blackwood

        Oh, thank you xD

        • icup

          it’s now free on us store. i just downloaded it.

          • Luke Blackwood

            F*** Yeah, It’s free on BR PSN as well o/

            Now I’ve just got to wait for it to download xD

  • Arizato

    Damn! That’s awesome! Just hope this also applies to EU.

  • baha

    Ha, so being a fuckin’ slowpoke saved me actual money o/

    • Arcana Wiz

      i know, i just bought the game last week! And now i will have a free batch of dlc ^o^

    • Suzaku

      That’s almost always the case. Games tend not to appreciate in value over time.

  • XiaomuArisu

    Eu too I hope?
    Because I havent get the DLC´s yet!

    • TrevHead

      Not on UK 360s yet, even though Eurogamer has a similar article even though it’s not totally clear if the dlc is free to existing owners.

  • Randgriz

    better be free on EU too cause its free on PS+ .. aw man what a deal xD

  • Anime10121

    And I was just thinking about getting one of these (probably Sam) off of PSN a couple days ago! Glad I waited :D

  • Tom

    To the PSN!

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    Wow… this is a treat. I never finished all the DLC VR Missions… this game is calling me to play it again!

  • John Diamond

    guess who’s buying metal gear revengence

  • http://radiantloki.blogspot.com/ Mark Dinh

    Any new on when the bundle for MGR comes out?

  • ecoutercavalier

    Can I get a refund? That DLC wasn’t worth the price, but it’s pretty good if it were free.

  • Brion Valkerion

    sweet!

  • SirRichard

    And there was me thinking of getting it over the Christmas break! Cheers, Konami.

  • Godman

    And there’s my excuse to play it again, well that and the awesome music

  • Lee Chueng

    THANK GOD i waited!

  • Repede91

    Being lazy and putting playing something pays off for once. Konami will recoup what they lost with this gesture from, I’ll probably purchase 2 copies of Ground Zeroes…

    • icup

      actually it should always pay off for being lazy to play something. rather than buying full price on new release, wait it out until there’s a discount which usually happens 3-5 months down the line.

  • Jake_Indiman

    Confirmed in Canada. Already in my download list!

  • artemisthemp

    This is half true.
    It’s free on US PSN, but it still cost money on EU PSN

  • Riseabovethesky

    Are DLC region-free? Can I use a EU version of the game and the US version of the DLC?

    • Brandonmkii

      Probably not, if my past experiences with DLC says anything.

      • Riseabovethesky

        Thank you, both of you. I tried Google but opinions were divided and 19 GB is too much to find out by myself (I finished the game long ago).

    • Mister_Nep

      I’ve heard of very rare instances of it working, but from my personal experience the answer is no.

    • quasadra

      i have an asia MGR, and got the jetstream sam dlc from US server. to my surprise, it works. i got no idea if EU x US would work though.

      • Riseabovethesky

        There’s a chance it will also be free for EU soon, so I’ll just sit back and wait.

    • Sean ‘Geg’ Reddie

      I downloaded the American one to check and it wasn’t compatible. It also seems like our store hasn’t set them free as our update is up. :/

  • cj may

    i made the right choice not picking this up yet.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Whaaaaaaaaaaat? AWESOME!

    • Nice Boat Quatro

      Talk about timing for you

      • Solomon_Kano

        Right? Perfect.

  • icup

    wow i’ve been planning to get these dlc which would have cost me $20 i think ($10 each?)… money saved. :)

  • $61526767

    Free MGR DLC? Yup! Time to be badass with Samuel!

  • Aoshi00

    I know everyone s happy, but dang, I bought both dlcs when they were on sale at half price and I still haven’t played them, thought it was as good as a sale could get, should’ve waited. At least I got the ms points for cheap…

    I guess Lords of shadow dlc won’t be made free with the collection just out :(

    Wonder if Jpn would get them for free too with the revengeance re-release… I have the Jpn ver as well…

    K, just chked Jpn PSN, both DLC are still 1000 yen each, guess they might not get for free since there’s a re-release w/ DLCs.. man the PS3 d/ls are huge, 2Gb & 2.5Gb respectively, much bigger than the 360 ver.. and need twice the HDD size to d/ & install..

  • quasadra

    does not apply on asia psn, or it haven’t updated yet.

  • MoriyaMug

    Oh hell yeah. Glad I never paid for these. I was considering it just last week, too.

  • Luis Ibal

    damn, and revengeance is free at psn+?

  • Arz

    YES!YES!YES!

  • DemonicX

    Wow, this is definitely amazing news. Much appreciated, Konami!

  • http://confitdent.com thedood7

    Sweet :-D So this means whether I get an R1 or R3 Revengeance, I still get to enjoy its DLC! SUGOI!

  • shadowind

    It’s definitely good news for me as I recently got the full game on PS+ in the UK.

  • Qee

    when? I want to download but still pay like usual.

  • Arthur Lau

    This should happen more often with old titles

  • Tiramii

    Just found out about this now, and I’m downloading~

  • Hunter

    Does anybody know if it’s still free on the playstation plus? My playstation was destroyed before they announced this and I just bought another one.
