Metro: Last Light Sings its DLC Swan Song


‘Tis a sad day in the underground world of the Metro, for today marks the release of the fourth and final piece of downloadable content for Metro: Last Light, a game both Tim and I agree is one of the year’s best.

The Chronicles Pack, available starting today for $4.99 by itself or as part of the $14.99 season pass, closes out the DLC run with a set of three new single player missions telling the side-stories of Artyom’s four companions, Pavel, Khan, Ulman and Anna. With an estimated run time of two hours, these stories run parallel to the events of the main storyline, offering a new perspective on key events and filling in some of the gaps surrounding Artyom’s journey.

Here’s a quick plot tease for each mission:

Discover how Anna, the unflinching Polis Sniper, tried and failed to rescue Artyom from the Reich forces in the ruined botanical gardens. Put the irrepressible Pavel’s deadly skills and ingenuity to the test as he attempts to escape the Bandit Lair beneath Venice. And guide Khan and Ulman through the forgotten, haunted tunnels of Polyanka in a chilling supernatural tale that reveals a dark secret from Khan’s mysterious past …

The fan-designed Multi Barreled Bicycle Shotgun also comes included in the Chronicles Pack as an extra little bonus.
