Toot! Metro 2033 Publishers Say No New Game In 2017

That story about word of a new Metro coming in 2017? Yeah, the publishers have responding with a statement saying that sure, they're planning another one but nah, don't expect such a thing next year. Where a site for the original Metro novels once said 2017 would bring a new game following on from Metro 2035, it now talks about "An untitled Metro project" due…

Book ‘Em Up: New Metro Game Coming In 2017

We'll be revisiting the subways of post-apocalyptic Moscow next year, it seems, according to a website for the book series first-person shooters Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light are based on. With the English edition of Dmitry Glukhovsky's trilogy-capping novel Metro 2035 coming in December, the site has added of a timeline of the series with a little note saying yup, another game will follow.

Metro Redux review

The beautifully bleak first-person shooters Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light have both been retooled and are being resold: a bit weird since the latter only came out last year. Is Metro Redux worth the dough if you already own the original games? How about if you don't? How about if, like me, you own one but not the other? Well, here's whut ah thank,…

Rail Replacement: Metro 2033 & Last Light Revamped

Update: Relax, everyone! A bit, at least. Steam's offering each Redux for half-price if you own the original game. Huh! Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light are being "remastered" for re-release, which is a funny thing. The pair of solid shooters are still quite recent, after all, not to mention pretty enough. It all seems quite odd until you remember new consoles now exist--shiny new…

What You Want To Hear: Saints Row IV Sold Well

Deep Silver have had quite the couple of years. They've gone from a European publisher of quietly successful strategy games and RPGs (the X games, Gothic, others), to finding mainstream success with Dead Island, to picking up where THQ left off with Metro: Last Light and Saints Row 4. In an interview with Deep Silver's CEO, The Penny Arcade Report mention that Saints Row IV…

A Work Of Artyom – Metro: Last Light’s Last DLC Out Now

Seems like only yesterday that we weren't even sure if Metro: Last Light would ever see the light of day. Seems like markedly closer to yesterday that it was flinging massive balls of spiders at us (this is the point where you should begin imagining this all like one of those fond memories flashback montages, except with the aforementioned imagery instead of a slow-mo snowball/food…

SPIDERS EVERYWHERE: Metro’s Developer Pack DLC

What's the deal with game developers and spiders? I'm actually working on a podcast-ish feature thing that tackles that very subject (it's been quite enlightening so far!), but for now I will sum up my findings in a brief, easily parsed expression of unbridled terror: EWWWEWWWWEWWWW. And also this for good measure. Metro: Last Light's "Developer Pack" DLC continues gaming's heartfelt, eight-legged embrace of arachnophobia with…

Ranger In A Strange Land: Metro LL Factions

Want to know all about Metro: Last Light's Factions DLC? Sure you do. Three short stories featuring new player characters from different groups. Nathan's already written quite a lot of words about the chaps in question and the kind of things that can be expected but he made a schoolboy error. Why write words when there's probably a trailer just around the corner that will…

Not Gonna Reich You A Love Song: Metro’s Story DLC

Hmmmm. I was really hoping that Metro: Last Light's story-based, world-expanding "Faction Pack" DLC might at least put us behind the gas mask of one non-combat character just trying to live in the game's diseased, decaying cesspit of a civilization, but alas. Still, it sounds like it'll be an interesting opportunity to understand where more militantly proficient folks who aren't Artyom come from, and that's definitely…

Freeze Maim: Metro – Last Light’s ‘Mobius’ Trailer

Launch trailers are released weeks before anything launches, trailers have their own trailers, and one day there will be a fifteen millisecond teaser for the reveal of the logo that is set to appear in a five second viral video that is itself advertising an advert for a web-based spin-off of your favourite game. I'm sorry, that's just the way of it. Metro: Last Light…

Metro: LL Getting A Metric Ton Of Single-Player DLC

Metro: Last Light is my current slithering, senses-constricting conquest, but I haven't quite finished it yet. Thus far, however, my feelings align pretty well with Jim's, bringing Hivemind Orgiastic Synergism rates up to 212.5783 percent. Last Light's different from 2033 but still of a similar spirit, and I quite like the idea of viewing its intoxicatingly disheveled world from different perspectives. That's precisely the idea…

Metro: Last Light review

4A's sequel to their widely-enjoyed post-apocalyptic shooter Metro 203 appeared last week, and I've been waving my Geiger counter of critical analysis over its glowing innards. Will Metro: Last Light be remembered as a worthy sequel, or as a the point where 4A's filter finally failed? Here's wot I think.

Left Hand, Metro Right Hand: 4A On Poor Work Conditions

To hear former THQ boss Jason Rubin tell it, Metro: Last Light studio 4A Games is maybe not the best place to work. He doesn't mean that in a whip-crack-y, everyone's-a-jerk way, though. Quite the contrary, actually: he recently claimed it was a case of absurdly talented people working elbow-to-elbow in "appalling" conditions. Their offices? "More like a packed grade school cafeteria than a development studio."…

Power Cuts And Responsibility: Making Metro: Last Light

We've yet to WiT Metro: Last Light on RPS, thanks to the review code not working, but its recent release has prompted ex-THQ boss Jason Rubin to write an astonishing article on the development of the game. Over at GamesIndustry.biz, Rubin has written an incendiary post on the daily struggles that Kiev-based dev team 4A Games faced, calling their game "a stunning achievement", and asking…
