Despite confusion, the issue seems resolved.

Update, original story below.

Konami seems to corrected the issues which were hampering 'Metal Gear Solid: Revengeance.'

While Konami has stated via Steve Key that the game may need to be re-downloaded for those affected, High-Def Digest can confirm that the issue that was present this morning is no longer a problem. The game now runs fine even when the connection has been lost.

Original story follows:

'Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance' hit the PC yesterday, and immediate impressions reveal the game to be a decent PC port with a handful of nice additions and relatively limited visual options.

Unfortunately, the game has an aggravating issue, it only works when online. Not only does the game not work in Steam's offline mode, but when playing the game normally, losing an internet connection for a mere second or two causes the game to exit out to Windows.

The effect is one of online DRM, but while many are outraged at the notion and experience, Konami and Platinum Games have described the issue as an unintended bug, which they are working to fix.

Hopefully a fix will come soon, and allow players to tackle 'Revengeance' without worrying that a lost connection will kill the game.
