Craving more content after reading my first impressions for Metro: Last Light on Friday? Well you’re in luck as 4A and Deep Silver have come out with their post-release content plans for the moody shooter.
4A is planning on releasing four DLC packs and as such, they’ve released a season pass for purchase. The pass will cost only $15 so as you can imagine, you’re essentially getting all 4 for the price of 3. If that’s not enough, picking up the season pass will also net you an exclusive semi-auto shotgun rifle.
4A has also provided a few details on what they’re planning for the add-on content. The first two packs called “Chronicle” and “Factions” will be more story-centric and focus on expanding the world and universe. They also confirmed that Artyom’s story does conclude at the end of the main game so these two packs will feature new and original single player gameplay.
“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,” said Andrew Prokhorov, Creative Director at 4A Games.
The third and fourth seem to offer something new for players rather than an expanded story. The third pack is called “Tower” and from the description, it appears to be based around unique challenges for the player to complete. I’m wondering if this is something like Dishonored first offered with the Dunwall City Trials. Lastly, the fourth and final DLC included in this season pass is called “Developer” and the only real information given is that it will give creative players some interesting tools with which to explore the world of Metro. Maybe some sort of map editor or developer tools to mess around with? This could be very interesting.
The pass is available now on Xbox Live, PSN, and Steam with the first DLC being prepped and readied for release in June. For you Playstation Plus members, there’s an additional discount for a short time. So make sure you jump on this.
