[Metro Last Light] Teaser site Live. Ominous. Reveal is May 24
It's a sequel to that game you all have played and made comments towards its atmosphere and Russian-ness. The game has a vague 2012 release date so far but a steady stream of new information. For example...
12-minute gameplay demo just came out
The original Metro 2033 game is based on a novel of the same name by Dmitry Glukhovsky. As far as I know this game will branch off a bit from the printed follow-up, Metro 2034, as that book is less action oriented. I can't attest to this personally but then again I can't dispute it either.
In this world Russia lives in Metro stations as Russia is known for doing. Also they messed up the city pretty bad. Aside from the normal mutants, the world is now inhabited by Nazis AND Commies. It's a messed up world where everyone is trying to either kill a simple messenger or make him do all their leg work. It's a world where librarians are nowhere near as helpful as you would expect.
In both games you play as Artyom but that's all secondary to "Holy crap this subway has more variety and atmosphere than it has any right to" followed by "shit Moscow took a turn for the worse." While gazing at the scenery you may notice that you can no longer breathe the air, or possibly that a strange 8ft tall pig man is gnawing on you. You can spend your free time throwing pipe bombs with nails on them at strange winged beasts, leaving them in fear of you developing a bigger pipe with bigger nails in it.
First time trying to start a thread so I'm sure It will have some birth pains, but I'll keep working on it as I find new things. I just couldn't stand there not being a thread for this game any longer. I'm sorry if there is one but the search box found nothing and going through pages and pages of threads didn't either.
