Metro Redux coming this summer to PC and next-gen consoles
Next-gen remasters are all the rage (and we suspect they will be at E3 in a few weeks time). Next on the list is 4A Games’ Metro Redux; remastered, improved versions of Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
2033 sees the biggest changes, with the original game being rebuilt in Last Light‘s 4A engine. Advanced lighting, dynamic lighting, better effects etc. on the graphical forefront, as well as an array of changes to the game’s mechanics, such as improved AI and features previously only seen in Last Light.
As for Last Light, it too has received graphical enhancements, and will also include the oft-requested ability to check your watch and inventory. It’ll also contain all of the game’s season pass content. Both games will feature two “playstyles” – Survival and Spartan – one limits resources and makes the game a serious struggle, whilst the other brings more combat skills and plentiful resources.
Plus, for the desperately hardcore, the challenging, HUD-less Ranger Mode returns for both games. On consoles, both games will run at 60 frames per second, with the PS4 running at 1080p resolution versus the Xbox One at 900p resolution.
Both Metro 2033 Redux and Metro Last Light Redux can be bought individually as downloads for £15.99, or together at retail for £34.99.
We’re not too sure why it’s more expensive to buy them together, but the retail pricing is RRP, so expect retailers to discount.
