Metro: Last Light Redux is a new edition of the 2013ís Metro: Last Light. The title was initially released for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The developers at 4A Games decided to issue an enhanced version for the next-gen platforms (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One) and PC. The production is available for purchase as a standalone title through the digital distribution channels, or boxed - as a part of the Metro Redux bundle that also includes Metro 2033 Redux.

Story

The story of Metro: Last Light Redux for PC, PS4 and XONE takes place in the near future. After a nuclear apocalypse, the world as we know has ceased to exists and most of the humanity died out. The only survivors were a few thousand people that hid in the tunnels of the Moscow subway. The player yet again assumes the role of Artem, the protagonist of the original game. His adventures continue after the finale of Metro 2033.

Gameplay

Metro: Last Light Redux is a first-person perspective shooter. Our main task is to roam through subsequent locations that are full of enemies. There are also stealth sequences available where we may silently eliminate our opponents. The size of the mentioned locations was also increased, allowing the player to be more creative and to take more than one path to his objective.

Game modes

The production offers two additional game modes: Survival - that aims to provide survival horror experience (limited resources, more dangerous enemies, longer reload time), and Spartan - more action-oriented (Artem has powerful battle skills and bigger supplies). The famous Ranger Mode is still available.

Technicalities

Metro: Last Light Redux for PC, PS4 and XONE is powered by the latest version of 4A Engine, thanks to which its graphics are significantly better in comparison with the visuals of its predecessor (better melee attacks animations, among other things). Moreover, the game comes with all expansions released as a part of the Season Pass, as well as two options that the fans have asked for: Check Watch and Check Inventory.
