Metro: Last Light Slashes Multiplayer
Good new for fans of the engrossing singleplayer game, Metro 2033. The sequel, Last Light, has dropped its multiplayer mode - "the single player campaign is what the fanbase cares about the most." Wise words.
The previously announced multiplayer addition caused quite a stir, considering it felt (to some people) like a tacked on addition to a successful singleplayer title. But now, those who were worried it would effect the outcome of the game's main course, can rest easy. In a blog post on the Metro site, they have stated the reasons for removing the multiplayer, as well as answering other questions.
"We decided to fold this multiplayer team back into the main group and focus 100% of the studio’s resources on the single player campaign. As a result, Metro: Last Light will not ship with a multiplayer component."
Although a multiplayer mode would have had the potential to be at least interesting, it wouldn't have been why people were playing the game, or why they enjoyed the first. Metro: Last Light's release date is still set for 2013, what do you make of this news?
