It seems like famous modder Durante has managed to remove the limit of 1080p resolution for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance on PC. What’s more impressive here is that he managed to do it within a few hours of the game’s official release on Steam.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance faced quite a lot of controversy when it was revealed that the game is limited to 1080p resolution on PC. Considering the fact that most of the PC games never limit the option to change resolution, this was a strange decision from Konami. It also sparked a whole community outrage on Twitter.
Now it seems like the 1080p limit was merely a fluke, and something that could be fixed with a simple patch or update to the game. According to NeoGAF modder Durante, he managed to easily bypass this limit and run the game above 1080p resolution. But he thinks that this limit might be removed by a simple update as it didn’t really require much effort, not to mention that Konami could probably patch it out in future.
It is still unknown why Konami decided to release the game with such limit in the first place. Hopefully they can officially patch this out in a future update.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is now available on Steam. The game was released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 last year. It is a spin-off story set in the Metal Gear Solid universe and stars Raiden.
