4A Games and Deep Silver announced both Metro games will be re-mastered for next-gen consoles. Titled Metro Redux, the collection will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC this summer.
Metro Redux features both Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light fully remastered. Each version contains reworked visuals, 60FPS gameplay on consoles (running in 1080p on PS4) and new and improved content and features. Metro Redux allows players to choose from two unique play styles in both Metro titles. Now players can choose a “Survival” or “Spartan” play style in either game.
“Survival” is a slower paced style with limited resources, tougher enemy AI and slower reload speeds. “Spartan” is a faster pace, action-oriented style giving Artyom powerful combat skills and more resources. Additionally, the Ranger Mode returns to both games stripping away the HUD and applying hardcore rules to each game.
[adsense250itp]One of the biggest changes in Metro Redux is the complete overhaul of Metro 2033. The original game now runs in the latest iteration of the 4A engine granting it all the graphical and gameplay improvements of Metro: Last Light. Players will experience re-mastered visuals with advanced lighting, dynamic weather, fire and particle effects, more detailed characters with improved animation, more dynamic destruction and improved smoke.
Gameplay improvements feature advanced enemy AI, improved combat and stealth mechanics, superior weapon handling and improved controls. Metro 2033 Redux also features other signature features from Last Light such as the “mask wipe” mechanic, weapon customization, silent kills and take downs. Metro: Last Light Redux also receives some graphical and gameplay improvements. The improvements carry across both games and include new melee animations and the “Check Watch” and “Check Inventory” features. Additionally, Last Light Redux includes all the Season Pass add-on content.
Both Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux will also be available as individual digital downloads this summer on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. It will also launch as a retail box compilation at the same time as Metro Redux. The digital versions will each be $24.99 upon launch, while the retail compilation will be $49.99.
Metro Redux Announcement Trailer
Metro is a series everyone has been meaning to play. And with good reason too because it is such a fascinating universe and experience. The only issue was having a PC capable of doing it justice, especially when the previous console versions paled in comparison. With the PS4 and Xbox One versions running at 60FPS and a good resolution, this will be the best time to check out the Metro series.
