Metro: Last Light DLC expansions revealed

Deep Silver will release a trio of Metro: Last Light DLC packs in the coming months. The first single player add-on, Faction Pack, will launch in June, with the other two arriving later this summer. All three will be available at a discounted rate to those who purchase a just-announced season pass, which is priced at 1200 MSP on Xbox 360 and $14.99 / £11.99 / €14.99 on PS3 and Steam.

  • The ‘Faction Pack’ and the ‘Chronicles Pack’ will include new, original single player gameplay that expands on the Metro: Last Light universe and story
  • The ‘Tower Pack’ will present a unique solo challenge to Metro veterans
  • Meanwhile, the ‘Developer Pack’ will give creative players some interesting tools with which to explore the world of Metro

Season pass purchasers will also receive access to the Abzats, “a semi-automatic shotgun rifle with a devastating secondary fire mode that unleashes six shells in one blast”. PlayStation Plus subscribers are being offered a 25 per cent discount on the season pass between May 21 and June 4 in the US and May 22 and June 5 elsewhere.

4A Games creative director Andrew Prokhorov said of the DLC: “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. Since completing the game we have been working on these new stories and hope to release them throughout the summer.”

In our Metro: Last Light review, we said the shooter’s “fantastic sense of pacing” and “surprising level of detail” helped make it “an exceptionally immersive game”.
