Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Online DRM Bug Sparks Community Outrage, Gets Fixed Quickly

By -

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is now available on Steam for PC. It is a spin-off story based on Raiden and set in the Metal Gear Solid universe. It is developed by Platinum Games, the acclaimed developers of Bayonetta and Vanquish from Japan. Unfortunately, its PC port wasn’t perfect and meet with some issues and bugs, that are slowly getting ironed out with updates.

The game started facing controversy when it was announced that it will be limited to 1080p resolution only. There was no way to go above that resolution. As the game got official release yesterday, acclaimed modder Durante from NeoGAF easily managed to bypass the 1080p limit, although he decided against releasing any fix to public since Konami could easily patch this limit in a potential future update.

Now it seems like the Online DRM Bug, that infested Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance on Steam has also been fixed by Konami. If you haven’t downloaded the game from Steam yet, just download the game and it will be up-to-date with the online bug sorted out. If you already have the game installed on your PC, files should just be replaced.

Hopefully Konami can also release an official patch to remove the 1080p resolution limit soon.
