Metro Redux leaked out a few weeks ago and now Deep Silver and 4A Games have made an official announcement, stating that both Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light will be coming to next gen consoles this summer.
Metro 2033 has had the biggest upgrade with a tonne of new features:
- The original game has been rebuilt in the latest and greatest iteration of the 4A Engine, bringing all the graphical and gameplay improvements from Last Light to Metro 2033 Redux
- Enjoy completely re-mastered visuals: advanced lighting, dynamic weather, more detailed characters with improved animation, more dynamic destruction and improved smoke, fire and particle effects
- Experience radically improved gameplay: advanced enemy AI, improved combat and stealth mechanics, superior weapon handling and more responsive, intuitive controls plus signature features from Last Light such as the atmospheric ‘mask wipe’ mechanic, weapon customization, and silent kills and takedowns
Metro: Last Light Redux has also been tweaked and includes better graphics, new melee animations, and the fan-requested ‘Check Watch’ and ‘Check Inventory’ features. It will also include all previously released Season Pass DLC which clocks in at around a further 10 hours of gameplay.
Both games will have two modes; ‘Survival’ has limited resources, deadlier enemy AI, and slower reload speeds, much like the original mode in 2033, whilst ‘Spartan’ includes powerful set of combat skills and more plentiful resources, which is more akin to the gameplay of Last Light.
Now the good news, Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux will each be available separately as a digital downloads for just £15.99. You can also buy both games as a boxed compilation got £34.99. Either way, it’s a bit of a bargain.
The team have also announced that Linux and SteamOS versions will also release later this year.
UPDATE: Deep Silver brand manager, Huw Beynon, has confirmed that the PS4 version of the games will run at 1080p whilst the Xbox One versions run at 900p.
