Just yesterday publisher, THQ, announced the sequel to the sleeper-hit Metro 2033, subtitled Last Light as a real game. It has been rumoured shortly after the release of the first game that a sequel would come as the game was considered a great new IP, that sadly had underwhelming sales.
Last Light returns to post-apocalyptic Moscow, expanding on the beauty and uniqueness of the original title. Danny Bilson, VP of THQ had some words on the release of Last Light and predecessor: “We believe that Metro 2033 was a flawed masterpiece, It was a beautiful, original game that didn’t get the marketing support it needed. We won’t make that mistake with Metro: Last Light. This game improves on the original in every way – it will have more polish, deeper and more sophisticated gameplay, and satisfyingly visceral combat, without losing what our fans loved about the original. Metro: Last Light is another artful piece of game development from an Eastern European studio that will thrill and terrify anyone looking for a more cerebral experience than your typical first person shooter.”
