Metro: Last Light

Metro: Last Light is set to release on May 14 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC, Deep Silver announced.

The game will release in Europe on May 17.

Deep Silver, the publisher behind the 2011 hit Dead Island, acquired the rights to Metro: Last Light from THQ after the company dissolved due to bankruptcy. Koch Media, the parent company of Deep Silver, also purchased the Saints Row franchise from THQ along with the game’s development studio Volition.

Metro: Last Light was previously expected to release this month. After the acquisition, the future of the first-person shooter was in doubt.

This is the second time the game has been delayed. Developer 4A games says the latest delay will give the company time to add a final layer of polish to the game.

Metro: Last Light is the sequel to the 2010 survival-horror game Metro 2033. It is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland in the year 2034. The metro tunnels in Moscow have become a new home for the city. Players will have to fight against hordes of mutant enemies as well as other survivor factions. With a civil war on the horizon, gamers will take on the role of Artyom, the last light for mankind’s survival.

Dmitry Glukhovsky, the author of the Metro 2033 novel which inspired the video game franchise, wrote the plot for Metro: Last Light. He also wrote all dialogue featured in the game. Metro 2033 and Metro 2034, Glukhovsky’s novels, have sold more than two million copies worldwide. His latest book, Metro 2035, is expected to be available outside of Russia this year.

Pre-order details for Metro: Last Light are being worked out and will be revealed soon.
