Metal Gear Rising On PC Suddenly Requires An Internet Connection
Metal Gear Rising has been out on consoles for nearly a year now, but those patiently waiting for the PC finally had the chance to get their hands on the hack and slash title, starring series favourite Raiden, yesterday. Sadly though, there seems to be a pretty major bug that is putting and dampener on the entire experience.
Many Steam users have reported that the game will not run when Steam is in offline mode, which is very odd for a title that is not multiplayer. Even worse are reports that the game is kicking players out as soon as their internet connection drops, seemingly insinuating that Metal Gear Rising requires a constant internet connection to run. As you might expect, this is not listed on the game’s Store page.

That’s because it’s not a feature or some sort of draconian DRM system that Konami has put into practise. Konami has acknowledged the error and says it is a fault on their side, and they’re working on getting a fix out as soon as possible. The official Konami Twitter account confirmed this earlier today.
We are aware of the offline play issue for Metal Gear Rising for Steam and are working on a fix. Please stay tuned for more updates!
So if you’re having you play sessions cut sort because of your shoddy internet connection, then have faith in Konami and their ability to fix this quickly. We hope.
