Blade Wolf DLC hitting Metal Gear Rising this month

Metal Gear Rising’s Blade Wolf DLC will be slicing its way onto the European PlayStation Store in mid-May, Konami has announced.

The pack will hit Xbox LIVE on May 14 and arrive on PlayStation Network the following day. It’ll set you back 560 Microsoft Points via XBL and €6.99 on PSN.

This latest post-release content focuses on Raiden’s sidekick LQ-84i (aka Blade Wolf), and takes the form of a prequel side-story revealing the nimble mechanical canine’s exploits prior to forming a partnership with Raiden.

Players will be able to control Blade Wolf in combat and scrap with multiple foes using his unique arsenal of weapons and abilities. The DLC culminates in a brand new boss battle, says Konami.
