From the looks of this thirteen minute long game play demo of Metro: Last Light, one of the significant new survival mechanics will involve keeping your mask clean. You read that right: everything from rain water to vermin to congealing blood splatters have the potential to obscure your vision, leaving you to weigh when you can spare a moment to lower your weapon and wipe it clean.
If there’s anyone in the business doing a better job at this style of atmospherics than 4A Studios, I haven’t seen it yet. Click inside to see the full demo video right here!
Metro: Last Light is scheduled to release on the 360, PS3, Wii U, and PC early next year.
