'Metro: Last Light' trailer shows life in underground Russia
Wednesday 24 August 2011
Stitching together 12 minutes of gameplay first shown at this year's E3 expo,
Metro: Last Light's super-trailer offers a glimpse of a desolate, radioactive Moscow and its subway-dwelling population.
The first game, Metro 2033, was as much in the tense survival-horror genre as it was a shooter, but this Last Light video serves to emphasize its action elements.
Still, long manual reload times on DIY firearms emphasize the makeshift nature of high-caliber weaponry in post-apocalypse Russia, and there are some clever ways to stay hidden in dimly lit environments.
It's another visit to a desolate future, following in the footsteps of the Stalker series on PC and cross-platform epics Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.
As for Metro: Last Light, it's set in 2034 and arriving at retail roughly midway through 2012. The Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC are certain host platforms, and it's even been touted for Wii U as well.
