It comes out in May.
Metro: Last Light will be released on May 14, 2013 publisher Deep Silver has revealed. The European release date is scheduled for May 17, 2013.
“The new release date is the ideal way to strike the balance between bringing the best out of Metro: Last Light and not keep the fans waiting longer than necessary,” said Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Koch Media.
“We won’t leave that time unexploited and will work closely together with 4A Games to make the game even better. It will receive all the attention it deserves.”
Menno van der Bil, International Commercial Director, Deep Silver, said: “Since it has been made public that we took over the Metro franchise, the fans keep asking for a release date. Now we can finally announce when they will be able to get their hands on the game!”
“We would like to thank all of the Metro fans for their patience. And we can assure them that we have a lot more coming their way with the franchise.”
The game’s plot has been written by Dmitry Glukhovsky who also wrote the novel Metro 2033.
Here’s the game description:
“In the year 2034, a nuclear war has turned the world into a post-apocalyptic wasteland. In Moscow, the tunnels of the Metro have become a new home for the former inhabitants of the city.
Within the catacombs, they fight for their survival, fending off hordes of hideous mutants born from the toxic atmosphere, as well as other factions desperate to take control of what little hospitable land remains.
As they fight, they also search for a doomsday device that could be the key to their victory. A civil war is inevitable. During these dark hours, the players will embody Artyom, and become the last light for all of mankind.”
