A while back, we informed you about the possible DLC packs for Metro: Last Light. As we said, 4A Games planned for alternative stories and it seems that we were right all along. Deep Silver today announced that 4A Games will be supporting Metro: Last Light with a series of original single player content packs throughout the Summer.
There will be four DLC packs for Metro: Last Light and these are:
· The ‘Faction Pack’ and the ‘Chronicles Pack’ will include new, original single player gameplay that expands on the Metro: Last Light universe and story
· The ‘Tower Pack’ will present a unique solo challenge to Metro veterans
· The ‘Developer Pack’ will give creative players some interesting tools with which to explore the world of Metro…
Andrew Prokhorov, Creative Director at 4A Games said:
“Artyom’s story may have been concluded in Metro: Last Light, but there are other characters with stories to tell, some familiar locations that fans of the Metro series wanted to revisit, and some new challenges that 4A wanted to explore. Since completing the game we have been working on these new stories and hope to release them throughout the summer.”
The Metro: Last Light Season pass is available to download now from Xbox Live, PlayStation Network and Steam for $14.99 / £11.99 / €14.99 or 1200 MSP. In addition to all the new individual content Packs, the Season Pass also includes the Absats weapon – a buckshot-firing heavy machine gun — ready for use in the Metro.
The first chapter will be the ‘Faction Pack’ , set for release in June 2013.
As said in the past, 4A Games wanted to release the mod tools for Metro: Last Light. However, it seems that those tools will be coming as a DLC. After all, that’s what Developer Pack hints. If that’s the case – if the Developer Pack is the game’s Mod Tools – then it’s a sad day for PC gamers.
4AGames informed us that the Developer Pack is not the Full SDK.
