Jack Into Metro: Last Light’s Virtual Combat Simulator Next Week


Metro: Last Light‘s Tower Pack, the second of four planned DLC add-ons for the atmospheric first-person shooter from 4A Games, is scheduled to go online next week. Specifically, the date’s set for September 3rd on Steam, PSN, and Xbox Live (or September 4th for international PSN users). The pack will sell for $4.99 on its own, but is also included as part of the $14.99 DLC Season Pass.

The Tower Pack appears to stray about as far away from the dark tunnels and radioactive swamps of the core game as is possible, throwing down a gauntlet of a VR combat simulator for Metro weapons specialists to prove their skill against one another on the global leaderboards. Inside the simulation, players will fight their way up the tower’s increasingly difficult levels, each floor swarming with more fearsome enemies than the last.
