Where's You Metro Pass?
Those lovely people at 4A are teasing us with a Season Pass for Metro: Last Light. But stop right there! Wait a moment before you spew your vitriol at this much maligned, still controversial business model. Because this is most certainly not what you are expecting. It's all single player content. Which I really shouldn't even have to mention, since Metro is a single player game, but there you go. Fear not, no unneeded online multi-player is being shoehorned in. So cool your heels.
“Artyom’s story may have been concluded in Metro: Last Light, but there are other characters with stories to tell, some familiar locations that fans of the Metro series wanted to revisit, and some new challenges that 4A wanted to explore. Since completing the game we have been working on these new stories and hope to release them throughout the summer.”
The first of these, coming in June, is the Faction pack, which will be coupled (presumably soon after) by the Chronicles pack to expand on Metro's universe and story...doesn't that sound thrilling? Meanwhile, the Tower pack will introduce a new "unique solo challenge" (perhaps a side story from one of those 'other' characters mentioned above?) and the Developer pack will introduce new tools. What, precisely, all of this will actually amount to remains to be seen. So watch this space. We will give you more details as soon as they come to light. Until then, feel free to hypothesise away in the comments below.
The pack can be pre-purchased, via Steam, right now for $14.99/£11.99 and includes a semi-automatic shotgun for your troubles.
