Following MSF's destruction, Miller gets embittered, seeing the concept of a nation for soldiers appropriated by other groups and reduced to being mercenary bands. He is rescued by Venom Snake from Soviet forces, enabling him to help in the expansion of the new Diamond Dogs mercenary group, wearing a large trenchcoat and beret while walking with a limp having lost his left leg and right arm. He is deeply distrusting of anyone affiliated with Cipher, accusing the likes of Huey and Quiet of betraying them and calling for their deaths.
He takes little satisfaction with vengeance on Skull Face. Miller nevertheless believes in Diamond Dogs' cause. However, his faith is shaken with the revelation that Snake is actually Big Boss's body double as part of a covert war.
In the backstory of Solid Snake, Marv successfully creates a new algae species called OILIX that could produce petroleum-grade hydrocarbons with little expense and effort. Marv presented the algae to the World Energy Conference in Pragueand was on his way to a demonstration in the United States when he was kidnapped by soldiers from Zanzibar Land. Born from a French mother and an English father, she became interested in literature at an early age and was later awarded the Pulitzer Prize for her coverage in Afghanistan plus an Emmy Award mistakenly referred to in the original manual as a Grammy Award for her documentary, Unknown Bloodstream.
Her newfound fame eventually gets her the attention of the CIA. She infiltrates Zanzibar Land as a journalist and assists Solid Snake over the course of the mission. Once known as one of the world's best figure skaters with stints in the world championships and the Olympics under her beltHeffner was stripped of her competition rights after being caught in an attempt to seek political asylum in Canada with Frank Jaeger.
She sought to redeem herself by joining the StB. She is escorting Dr. But the end of the Cold War does not mean that peace will follow. Freed from the domination of the world's superpowers, nationalism will soon be the driving force behind global politics. And the ever-widening gap between rich and poor will fan the flames of hatred between nations. Nuclear weapons will slip from the superpowers' grasp and spread throughout the world. Soon no one will know when or where the nukes will come from.
Today's ally may be tomorrow's bitter enemy. Who of you can say that tomorrow you won't be aiming your rifles at your neighbors? Is there no one who has a grudge against you?
No one who mocks you? No one who really needs you? Is there truly no one out there who would kill you? One of my men is standing amongst you right now. His instructions are to kill you - for your betrayal. Your enemy is standing right beside you. This planet is like a giant bomb.
See how easily it blows itself to bits with a single nuclear warhead. Or rather, a single bullet. Why are you still alive?
I used to get dreams, about my comrades. They would save me with strong arms and laughing voices. When I woke up from these dreams, I had nothing. No joy, no sorrow, no hatred, no memory. When I woke up from the darkness, all I saw were the bodies of men I've killed, lying in front of me.
No matter how good a man you are, no matter how good a soldier, there are no exceptions. Even if I don't kill them, they die. This world is full of death and yet you won't be killed. Why do you still live? What do you hope to accomplish by living? Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots [ edit ] Old Snake: It's no longer about nations, ideologies or ethnicity.
It's an endless series of proxy battles, fought by mercenaries and machines. War, and its consumption of life, has become a well-oiled machine. Nanomachines inside their bodies enhance and regulate their abilities. Everything is monitored, and kept under control. The age of deterrence has become the age of control. All in the name of averting catastrophe from weapons of mass destruction. And he who controls the battlefield, controls history. When the battlefield is under total control, war This is only the beginning, Snake.
America will descend into chaos It'll be the Wild West all over again.

No law, no order. Fire will spread across the world. The people will fight Everything has its beginning. But doesn't start at "one. The world is born The moment zero becomes one is the moment the world springs to life.
One becomes two, two becomes ten, ten becomes Taking it all back to one solves nothing. So long as Zero remains, one And so our goal was to erase Zero. Even the mighty Patriots began with a single man. That one man's desires grew huge, bloated; absorbed technology; began to manipulate the economy. We realized too late that we had created a beast. We had helped turn Zero into And for that reason, I'm taking it upon myself to send Zero It's about doing our best to leave the world the way it is.
It's about respecting the will of others and believing in your own. We all fought a long, bloody war for our liberty to free ourselves from systems, nations, norms and ages, but no matter how hard we fought, the only liberty we found was on the inside, trapped within those limits The Boss and I may have taken different paths but in the end, we were both trapped inside the same cage In school I also learned that peace is an unnatural state for human society.
And that war is a constant threat to our relationship with others. So, to achieve peace, we have to create it ourselves.
Crying about it won't bring it about, or make it last. Each one of us must go and seek it out. You won't find it without making sacrifices. No offense, but I don't know what peace is. Never felt what it's like. Never even been interested in it. Chico, growing up means choosing how you're gonna live your life. No matter what happens, keep them safe.
Pain gets the better of us all. I was wondering when you'd come, Jack the ripper. No one calls me that anymore. Dolzaev, where is he? You're in charge here? I am "Mistral" - the cold wind of france. And you, your reputation preceeds you, liberian but white as snow, a natural born killer even as a child. That was a long time ago I was born in Algeria myself you know, I'm only half french.
We had our own civil war in the 90's. You don't know me. I lost my whole family, everything But I butchered those fuckers. My family's killers, that's when I realized I am a killer too.
And a good one at that. I slaughtered dozens in Iraq, in Afghanistan, and found my calling. Proud of that, are you? To be honest I found it quiet dull. My enemies fell like domino, one after another. Not once did I feel content. I was adrift, without challenge without purpose.
At times I even envied my prey, at least they had a cause to die for. And then, I met him. And I knew what I'd been missing. His ideals gave my life meaning. It seems we have less in common then I thought. I'll take that as a compliment. If you would kill for your ideals, then surely you are ready to die for them! We can play up here without damaging the merchandise. What happens in three hours? Even at Mach 2, you wouldn't make it. And killing you is gonna take some time: Like I said, kids are cruel, Jack.
And I'm very in touch with my inner child. Played college ball, ya know. At some cushy Ivy League school! Coulda gone pro if I hadn't joined the Navy! I'm not one of those beltway pansies. I could break the president in two… with my bare hands. Don't fuck with this senator! You're right about one thing -- I do need capital, and votes! That one day, every person in this nation will control their own destiny! A land of the truly free, dammit!
A nation of action, not words -- ruled by strength, not committee! Where the law changes to suit the individual, not the other way around! Where power and justice are back where they belong, in the hands of the people! Where every man is free- to think, to act- for himself!
Fuck all these limp-dick lawyers, and these chickenshit bureaucrats! Fuck American Pride -- fuck the media -- Fuck all of it! America is diseased -- rotten to the core We need to pull it out by the roots!
Wipe the slate clean -- burn it down! And from the ashes a new America will be born! The weak will be purged, and the strongest will thrive; free to live as they see fit! They'll make America great again! What the hell are you talking about You still don't get it! I'm using war as a business to get elected! So I can end war as a business In my new America, people will die and kill Not for money, not for oil, not for what they're told is right!
Every man will be free to fight his own wars! How the hell did you get elected Well, I don't write my own speeches. You should try fighting for what you believe in sometime, Jack. Not for a company, or a nation, or for anyone else. Maybe I was wrong about you Am I finally getting through? You're not greedy- [Shakes Armstrong's hand, moves in close.
Commence boss battle Raiden: Not used in anger. Not used for vengeance. I needed this place, to listen to the words people have to say. That's something they could never understand. You've done your part. You told us plenty. You've known the pain of ages. And even now you think, as any person would, that this can't be happening. Just an imprint of a lifetime of stories? Face to face with oblivion, which is where you are, and you still think that help is coming.
The world you were born into is made to save you. Of course it is. Until your last breath, you know it. Without the slightest chance or reason left to them, humans are capable of hope. But for one thing. When my time came calling I didn't die. My family died, my country died, but they didn't take me with them.
All Hell took from me was this skin, this outer peel that marked me "human. Every day my friends and I would see our parents at work in that factory. That's all I had. All the world I knew. Then one day, aircraft came droning in from some far-off sky. The factory was bombed. We tried to flee outside. The crowd blocked the exit. The crowd of people. I tried to push through their legs and get ahead, but a boot in my stomach put me on the ground.

The smoke of them burning filled me up. I heard my name called At the infirmary they carried me to, a nurse in the corner saw me and remarked, as if it happened every day: It was the language of my village. Until foreign troops invaded. Then the last identity I had left - the words I spoke - were pulled from me. My skin would never feel anything again. This face would be burned again, in torture, at foreign hands, but I, I still writhe in that burning factory.
Doused in scalding rapeseed oil. That's all I have to feel, that pain - all I have to remind me I exist here. Those "spies" reported well. We made weapons all right. As cartloads of rifles came in from the battlefields, we fixed them up and sent them back out. So our country could win. Or rather, so that little world we knew could continue. I came to realize I mustn't die. I'm their last hope, all those who perished and left me here. I have to accomplish something. If I don't, their will will be swept out of this world.
Do you see me now? What do you see? What do your eyes see? You see a skull face. This skull is who I am. My mark, my proof of humanity. I have no country, no language, I have no face, but I haven't lost my skull. So I told myself The pain and effort that keep me alive will never know relief, never bear fruit, never be repaid. I know that, but I told myself to focus on some hope, a nonexistent hope to guide me through this burning world.
A hope - call it a dream. As the pressures within me stretch me to bursting, and I force myself not to cry out, though the words I thought were carved into me are gone, and all I knew is dead.
I know how you feel. That I'm not the only one. That you too can return to this world, for revenge. Revengeance, was first revealed via a trailer shown at the Spike Video Game Awards on December 10, Revengeance with "Revengeance" coming from Kojima Productions' desire "to get revenge or vengeance on the original failed Metal Gear Solid: Rising project" while the stating "Rising" represents Raiden's character.
There was also a need to reduce the length of cutscenes so that it would balance the playing time. However, no part of the script was removed in the process. Revengeance in Japan without a Japanese voice localization but in Augustit was revealed the game would have Japanese audio confirming new and returning actors. The decision was made in order to avoid a repeat of the performance issues that Bayonetta had on the console. The arm contained a small teaser from the game in the form of a live-action scene.
The teasers are meant to give a few hints regarding the game's plot and none of the footage is to be used in it. As a result of the game being focused on action rather than stealth like the previous Metal Gear games, the music has a different style.
Director Kenji Saito proposed the idea of heavy and fast music featuring lyrics to Kojima Productions. When the studio accepted Saito's idea, the two developers started working together to make the music. A soundtrack featuring themes from the game was featured in the limited edition.
Rising was initially planned, release for this platform was put on hold. The first one, "Premium Package", contains an artbook by Yoji Shinkawa, and a soundtrack package. The second limited edition is the "Premium Package Special Edition" including all the contents from the other one with the addition of an action figure of Raiden. The same version was released in stores with the label of Special Edition on December 5, in Japan. It was claimed that the requirement was an accidental bug.
The game also has region locked serials and cross-region gifting. Revengeance was confirmed to be coming to the Nvidia Shield Console. The VR Missions set and bonus campaigns were made available during the months following the game's release.
