MetroLastLight

It is almost time to once again enter the mutant infested catacombs of post-apocalyptic Moscow, Deep Silver today announcing that Metro: Last Light, sequel to Metro 2033, has gone gold.

The story-driven FPS will be available for PC/Mac, PS3 and Xbox 360 starting May 14th. Those who pre-order will be guaranteed a ‘Limited Edition’ copy of the game containing a Ranger Mode DLC upgrade which will test hardcore players with a HUD free display, reduced resources and more challenging combat. Committed Rangers will also receive a Russian AKSU rifle locked and loaded with 100 rounds of ammo.
