Metro: Last Light developer 4A Games and publisher Deep Silver have announced recently that four pieces of new DLC will be coming to Metro: Last Light in the months ahead and that anyone who buys it will receive a free weapon in-game. Some of the DLC sounds interesting, read on to find out a bit more about them.
4A Games creative director Andrew Prokhorov said “Artyom’s story may have been concluded in Metro: Last Light, but there are other characters with stories to tell, some familiar locations that fans of the Metro series wanted to revisit, and some new challenges that 4A wanted to explore, since completing the game we have been working on these new stories and hope to release them throughout the summer.”
The upcoming DLC will include the Faction Pack and Chronicles Pack, both of which are single player content that “expands on the Metro: Last Light universe”. There will also be DLC called the Tower Pack, which is a “unique solo challenge to Metro veterans”. Last but not least is Developer Pack which 4A Games say will “give creative players some interesting tools with which to explore the world of Metro” which I hope means some sort of level editor or at least some cool new equipment to navigate the world more.
You can pre purchase all of the DLC through the usual Season Pass method for about $14.99/£11.99/€14.99 or 1200 Microsoft Points which will give you a small discount. You will also get an in-game “Abzats” which is a semi automatic shotgun with an alternate firing mode that fires six shells at once. However Season Pass wont give you the preorder DLC, the Ranger Mode (costs £3.99). PlayStation Plus subscribers can get 25% off the Season Pass between 21st May and 5th June.
The first bit of DLC, the Faction Pack should be out sometime in June for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
