Metro: Last Light trailer shows life and death underground

Metro: Last Light's latest trailer, "Salvation," is grim like a Russian novel. Nobody was expecting life to be grand for the citizens of Moscow's post-apocalyptic subway system, where they hide from the horrid beasts that claimed the surface world. But people always find a way to make things worse.

Players will sort things out for themselves, Russian-apocalypse-style, when the sequel to horror shooter Metro 2033 releases on May 14 in the Americas and May 17 in Europe. They'll find a different sticker on the box, too, since publisher Deep Silver picked up the license from the now-defunct THQ.
