With just over a year separating the release of Metro Redux with Metro: Last Light, one has to wonder what makes this release so special. Firstly, it contains both Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light in a bundle. It might be easy to think that it’s just Metro 2033 as an HD remake and a simple re-release of Metro: Last Light for a quick cash-in to go along with it. This is not so. Many significant, substantial changes have been made to remaster each game that warrants the purchase, even if you’ve played recently.
UPDATE: It appears that the PDF novel and associated DLC may not be available Steam users outside the North America region.
Prior to the release of Metro: Last Light, I was looking through my DLC tab and nothing was there. I restarted Steam today, and while I was looking for something else, this caught my eye:
It isn’t explained to you, but if you navigate to where Steam is installed:
/Steam/steamapps/common/Metro Last Light/novel/
You’ll see the file: Metro 2033 – English text.pdf
Go ahead and copy it out to read on your PC, phone, or other devices. If it didn’t work for you, the DLC can be downloaded (for free), at: http://store.steampowered.com/app/43163/
Dmitry Glukhovsky’s book, Metro 2033 was the inspiration of the 2010 game of the same name. Also drawing from Metro 2033 is Metro: Last Light, which does not relate to Metro 2034 novel sequel. You again play as Artyom, a Ranger who is trying to find “The Dark One” who may hold answers to their questions. Along the way is tension, action, betrayal, and loyalty. If you didn’t happen to play the first game, the opening cinematic of Last Light does a good job of catching you up.
