Third Metro: Last Light gameplay trailer is on-rails, off the wall

Decimating sentry camps and infiltrating Reich rallies is cool and all, but up until now the gameplay footage we've seen for Metro: Last Light has been suspiciously lacking in actual metro trains. Thankfully, the latest pre-alpha gameplay demo seeks to rectify this oversight by showing us one of the sequel's high-stakes on-rails sequences.

This is the third Metro: Last Light gameplay trailer to be plucked from THQ's private E3 showing and released for the unwashed masses. It depicts heroes Artyom and Khan pursuing an enemy train in hopes of saving (and/or silencing?) a prisoner held within it. Watch the first and second trailers for more on the game's shooting, running and stealth mechanics, or read our hands-on E3 impressions here.

Metro: Last Light is being developed by 4a-games for release on PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC sometime in 2012.

    Please don't turn into a cod clone, also did anyone notice Hanza written on the train? I can see them coming back to bite Artyom on the ass.

    I couldn't have loved Metro 2033 more. It is, without a doubt, one of my favorite games of this generation, and especially of all time. It had its problems, but that's what also gave it its charm. But still, this game is looking AMAZING. The graphics and gunplay have been amped up to far past my expectations. This is definitely in the top tiers of my long list. I just hope the atmosphere remains in tact.

    i really enjoyed Metro 2033, it had shitty shooting mechanics, but it made it up with atmosphere, and what the hell is going on parts. It was also cool and a bit frustating being out in the open knowing you had no more gas mask thingys to use and started shocking. the ending is also pretty awesome and rewarding.
