Deep Silver has today announced that the first official downloadable content (DLC) pack for the critically acclaimed Metro: Last Light will be made available next week. The Faction Pack includes three original single player missions, each casting the player as a different specialist from the warring Factions.
Returning to some classic locations from Metro 2033, these missions feature new weapons, the return of a truly terrifying mutant foe, and offer three distinct gameplay challenges:
· As a Special Detachment Sniper of the Redline, players must infiltrate a heavily guarded Reich Outpost at night, under the cover of a deadly radioactive storm…
· … before defending the front line as a Reich ‘Heavy’, armed with some of the most devastating weaponry found in the Metro.
· Lastly, players take the role of a Polis Ranger in training, tasked with exploring the vast Library complex for artifacts and relics. Salvage can be exchanged for ammunition, filters and hazard suits allowing ever deeper exploration into the Library. Rangers are advised to light torches and leave a trail of lights so they can find their way back to the base before their precious oxygen runs out…
The Faction Pack DLC will be released on 16th July 2013, on PC and Xbox 360, and 17th July on PlayStation 3.The Faction Pack will cost just £3.99 / 400 Microsoft Points, and is the first of four DLC packs to be included in the Metro: Last Light Season Pass, which at £11.99 / 1200 Microsoft Points offers a discount over buying the packs separately, and also includes an additional exclusive weapon, the Abzats.
