METRO LL SS 1 620x348 Metro: Last Light Media and Announcement

THQ and A4 Games want to go back into the sewers.  Announcing Metro: Last Light, A4 brings us back to the world of mutants, cobbled together weapons and items, and a deep need for ammunition to use as weapons and as currency.   Admittedly, I found the first title to be a little flawed, but from the sounds of things A4 agreed with me.  Claiming sweeping improvements to the title, we get our first look at Metro: Last Light.

It is the year 2034. Beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside – and within. Mutants stalk the catacombs beneath the desolate surface, and hunt amidst the poisoned skies above.

But rather than stand united, the station-cities of the Metro are locked in a struggle for the ultimate power, a doomsday device from the military vaults of D6. A civil war is stirring that could wipe humanity from the face of the earth forever. As Artyom, burdened by guilt but driven by hope, you hold the key to our survival – the last light in our darkest hour…
