Deep Silver Get Metro Last Light DLC Fever

It may have only come out a couple of months ago but publisher Deep Silver have unveiled four upcoming expansions to the creepy FPS shoot-em-up Metro: Last Light.

You can pick up the tediously named ‘Faction Pack’ on Steam, Xbox Live and PSN (in the US) on the 16th July; us poor schlubs in the EU will have an agonizing extra days wait for some reason.

For your £3.99 or 400 MSP investment, you get three new single player missions, each casting you as a different specialist from the warring Factions – hence the name I guess. The press release blurb describes the missions thusly:

Returning to some classic locations from Metro 2033, these missions feature new weapons, the return of a truly terrifying mutant foe, and offer three distinct gameplay challenges…

As a Special Detachment Sniper of the Redline, players must infiltrate a heavily guarded Reich Outpost at night, under the cover of a deadly radioactive storm…

before defending the front line as a Reich ‘Heavy’, armed with some of the most devastating weaponry found in the Metro.

Lastly, players take the role of a Polis Ranger in training, tasked with exploring the vast Library complex for artifacts and relics. Salvage can be exchanged for ammunition, filters and hazard suits allowing ever deeper exploration into the Library. Rangers are advised to light torches and leave a trail of lights so they can find their way back to the base before their precious oxygen runs out…

If all of that doesn’t sate your thirst for novel based horror/sci-fi gunnery, you can grab the Season Pass which, at £11.99 or 1200 MSP, offers a discount over buying the packs separately and also includes an additional exclusive weapon, the Abzats.

Back to the marketing spiel for the details:

The ‘Tower Pack’ presents a unique experience for seasoned Metro gunslingers – a challenge based game mode, with online Leaderboard support, as players fight their way up the combat simulator known as The Tower

The ‘Developer Pack’ boasts a fully stocked Shooting Gallery, the AI Arena and Metro Museum… And a bonus solo mission – The Spiders’ Nest – offers some new tools for dealing with an infestation of the skittering Spider mutants

Lastly the Chronicles Pack will feature original single player missions that cast the player as three of the game’s standout characters – Pavel, Khan and Anna – and explore their side-stories away from Artyom’s adventure

Sounds like  a fair bit of bang for your buck there, ladies and gentlemen.
