Get Ready for a Hot Summer of Metro: Last Light DLC

Metro: Last Light is an amazing game. Tim and I are in progress on a discussion review to elaborate on its atmospheric brilliance, but in the meantime there’s important news to talk about. You better stock up on gas mask filters and flashlight batteries, because there is plenty more Metro: Last Light action still to come.

Deep Silver and 4A Games have announced plans to release a series of downloadable content packs throughout the summer months ahead, beginning in June. The Faction Pack’ and the ‘Chronicles Pack will focus on telling new original stories in the Metro universe beyond Artyom’’s tale. Then there is the Tower Pack’, an add-on said to provide “a unique solo challenge to Metro veterans.” I’m not sure what that means exactly, but my hunch is that it will have something to do with stealth challenge maps, or something along those lines.

Even more ambiguous is the Developer Pack’, which “will give creative players some interesting tools with which to explore the world of Metro.” I honestly can’t even venture a guess as to what that could be, but I want it all the same.

“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,”” said Andrew Prokhorov, Creative Director at 4A Games. ““Since completing the game we have been working on these new stories and hope to release them throughout the summer.””

Individual DLC pack contents and pricing details are still to come, but a Season Pass is currently up for pre-purchase on PSN, Steam and Xbox Live for $14.99/1200 MS Points, with a 25% discount available for PlayStation Plus members through June 4th in the US. Buying the season pass will also unlock the Abzats, a semi-automatic shotgun rifle capable of unloading six shells with a single pull of the trigger. Man, that sure would have come in handy against the mutant bear beast later in the game…
