Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Metro: Last Light – Tower Pack
Metro returns today with the enhanced next-genified re-release Metro Redux. The $49.99 bundle includes Metro 2033, its sequel Metro: Last Light, and all DLC released for both titles for PS4 and Xbox One. Each is also available separately via download for $24.99. Both games have been enhanced with new animations, new voice overs, refined combat mechanics, and improved enemy AI. Ranger Mode is also available in both games as is the option to select two different play styles, the action-heavy Spartan mode and resource-restricted Survival mode.
Metro Redux, the retail double pack containing remastered versions of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, will launch on August 26, according to publisher Deep Silver. The set will include both games as well as all downloadable content packs for both titles as well as a host of graphical and performance enhancements. In addition, Spartan and Survival play styles will be supported across both titles, as will the formerly DLC-only difficulty level Ranger Mode.
Deep Silver has released three new screenshots from 4A Games’ Metro Redux, the upcoming double pack that includes updated versions of Metro 2033 and Last Light. Announced last week, Redux will upgrade both titles, adding Last Light features to Metro 2033, adding new difficulty levels, and more. The games will also be sold separately.
4A Games is bringing the Metro series back in a revamped form as a individual downloads and a physical double pack for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Metro: Redux will include remastered versions of Metro 2033 and its follow-up Metro: Last Light, along with its DLC, for $24.99 each or as a set for $49.99. In addition to both titles being updated to run at 60 frames per second, Metro 2033 is being rebuilt in the newest version of the 4A Engine, which adds dynamic weather and destruction, particle effects, and more. Both are said to sport improved AI, combat, and stealth mechanics; more responsive weapon handling; and extra abilities from Last Light, including mask wiping, weapon customization, and both silent kills and takedowns.
Deep Silver has announced that Metro: Last Light’s third DLC drop, Developer Pack, will be available on September 17 for 360, PC, and PS3. The pack will include a new solo mission, The Spider-Nest, which will require that players clear a catacomb of spiders using the lighter, torches, and the new Flamethrower. In addition, there will also be three new areas to utilize: a Shooting Range, where players can compete in marksman challenges with all gun and attachment combinations; an AI Arena, in which customizable squads of human soldiers and mutants face off in challenges; and a Metro Museum, where players can learn more about the characters and their mutant enemies.
Deep Silver announced that Tower Pack, the second of 4A Games’ planned four downloadable packs for Metro: Last Light, will launch on September 3. The 360, PC, and PS3 drop adds a new tower that houses a virtual combat simulator. Players who enter must battle their way up the booby-trapped tower against waves of increasingly difficult enemies.
