Casting Light On Metro: Last Light

4A’s sequel to Metro 2033, Metro: Last Light, seems to have been slipping beneath our radar a bit. The post-apocalyptic original was so close to being proper good that it’s definitely worth keep an eye on what they’re up to next. With that in mind, we caught up with THQ’s Huw Beynon to find a bit more about what’s happening with the game, which is set for release in mid 2012.

The Many Lights of Metro: Last Light

THQ and 4A’s Metro 2033 sequel promises a ‘last light’. I would like to take issue with this, for I can see over ten different lights across the following five new screenshots of the forthcoming post-apocalyptic, subterranean beast’n’manshooter. Who wants to call trade descriptions?

First Sight Of Metro: Last Light

Gosh, it does look good.

We knew that Metro: Last Light was happening back in April, after THQ registered the related URL. However, the official reveal of the Metro 2033 sequel has taken place today, along with a whole one screenshot (click on it to see it full size) and a teaser trailer. It’s off to post-apocalyptic Moscow once more.

THQ Registers “Metro 2033: Last Light”

After the fifteenth casualty, Gregor's clan abandoned their pastime of Plasma Dodgeball

This story’s about as flimsy as a wet paper bag full of knives, but let’s soldier on. Joystiq note that THQ have registered a domain by the name of “Metro 2033 Last Light”, which could very well be the name of the forthcoming Metro 2033 sequel. …yeah. That’s all I’ve got. Who’s excited? I’m excited.

If Metro 2033 passed you by, it was an atmospheric FPS (a toxic, unbreathable atmoshpere, specifically) set in a post-apocalyptic rendering of Moscow’s subway system, full of shadows and mutants and terror and all that good stuff. Alec got along well with it, and you can watch the launch trailer after the jump. It’s more than a year old now but still every bit as impressive.

A Metro 2033 Demo, Eh?

Well, better late than never. I’m not sure which bit of the game it features, but this 3gb demo seems to have surfaced last week and can be grabbed over on Fileshack. Definitely worth taking a look if you have any interest in the Russian post-apocalypse, which we were fairly enthused about earlier in the year. Alec wrote up some conclusions about it here. I found it mixed, being impressive in places, frustrating in others, and incredibly atmospheric throughout. I look forward to the sequel.

Wot I Think: Metro 2033

This Stalker-meets-Doom shooter arrived late last week, and made quite the change from shepherding around tiny armies in that bizarre glut of real-time-strategy games which have marched onto our hard drives this month. 4A’s sci-fi/horror FPS is arguably the biggest-budget, highest profile Russian/Ukranian game to date, a real break from the eyes-bigger-than-their-stomach fare we’re used to from that neck of the woods – which makes it a fascinating moment in time. Is it worth the ride down its menacing, ultra-graphicked train tracks? Join me do.
