Return to the Metro
Following the success of Metro: Last Light, it should come as no surprise that we're being graced with another foray into the grim, post apocalyptic mind of Dmitry Glukhovsky. What is surprising...is that we're getting a remake of the original. Which, actually isn't all that surprising when you really think about. HD remakes and whatnot are all the rage right now. And whilst Metro 2033 is not nearly old enough for that kind of treatment, it was...well, it did not live up to its full potential first time around.
We have no details on precisely what will be in the final product at this time, but Deep Silver issued an official statement to confirm that it is coming. Aimed primarily at the PlayStation 4 and Xbone, we won't be left out in the cold. So, at the very least, we're getting a collection pack that will contain everything from both games. But I expect, more than that, Metro 2033 will see a hefty overhaul of the gameplay as well as tweaks to the visuals. Perhaps even being completely rebuilt in the Last Light engine? 'Cause 2033 was already a damn fine game, but it had some serious flaws.
We'll just have to wait for E3 to find out more.
Mark your calendars.
