Metro Last Light 2 Metro: Last Light PC specs revealed

Sure, the console versions are great and all, but the Master Race know that it’s the PC is where it’s at.  Well, Deep Silver wants you to know what it’ll take to run Metro: Last Light when it releases next month.  Before we get to that, here’s a nibble about the sequel title if you happen to also live under a rock:

Metro: Last Light is a first person shooter and the highly anticipated sequel to the extraordinary Metro 2033. In the year 2034, a nuclear war has turned the world into a post-apocalyptic wasteland. In Moscow, the tunnels of the Metro have become a new home for the former inhabitants of the city. Within the catacombs, they fight for their survival, fending off hordes of hideous mutants born from the toxic atmosphere, as well as other factions desperate to take control of what little hospitable land remains. As they fight, they also search for a doomsday device that could be the key to their victory. A civil war is inevitable. During these dark hours, the players will embody Artyom, and become the last light for all of mankind.

The plot of Metro: Last Light was written by Dmitry Glukhovsky, acclaimed author of the novel Metro 2033 which inspired the creation of both video games. Also, Glukhovsky is responsible for all dialogues in Metro: Last Light. Glukhovskys novels Metro 2033 and Metro 2034 have sold more than 2.000.000 copies worldwide. In 2013, his latest book Metro 2035 will be also available outside of Russia. The film rights for Metro 2033 were bought by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM), the movie is currently in development.
