Metal Gear Solid Rising: Revengeance takes place three years after the Guns of the Patriots arc. War is no longer a business for the PMCs - or so the people say.

Desperado has taken control of Abhaasia. Raiden's company, Maverick, accepts the job from Russia to take the country back. With renewed armour and more powerful Cyborg parts, Raiden charges into enemy territory to fight Desperado, and to avenge his honour.
