Metro: Last Light

THQ promises extra support for Metro 2034

Forthcoming FPS sequel Metro 2034 is going to get much more attention lavished on it than its 2010 predecessor, publisher THQ has pledged.

Speaking in an interview with IGN, games VP Danny Bilson announced that the follow up to the 4A Games-developed Metro 2033 would see considerable investment in both development resources and marketing in an effort to reach a wider audience.

"There were certain things in [Metro 2033], even though it looked sensational, some of the shooting mechanics need to be better polished to compete with the Call of Dutys. They are this time," he explained.

"For marketing, it'll get a much more respectful push," he added.

The original, which saw you gunning your way through post-apocalyptic Moscow's mutant-infested underground system, drew praise from Eurogamer's Jim Rossignol when it launched on PC and Xbox 360 in March last year.

"Metro 2033 is far busier and far more accomplished than I expected it to be" he wrote in his 8/10 review, "and it's also one of the best-looking games - at least in a few very special scenes - on the Xbox 360."

Bilson is clearly also a big fan of the franchise, explaining that THQ was striving to preserve its unique atmosphere and feel.

"I'm a big supporter of that team in Kiev," said Bilson of Ukrainian developer 4A Games.

"It's an original Russian franchise. We don't want to mess with it and Americanise it. It's got its own point of view. Even though our guys in Agoura did a lot of the work on the fiction, this time it's still that vision. You're going to see a more polished game, you're going to see some crazy technology. We green-lit it before the other one shipped and you're going to see some of it at E3."

THQ has revealed Metro: Last Light, a sequel to the acclaimed but slow-selling FPS Metro 2033.

It retains the same setup - survivors clinging to life in the subway system of a post-apocalyptic Moscow, while various mutant nasties try to make it otherwise - and we're promised it will retain the unique atmosphere as well.

That means keeping the survival horror vibe, while improving on the rather spotty AI and gunplay of the original. Also on the list: dynamic destruction and improved hit animation. Not the most exciting additions, yes, but we saw it running last week and can confirm it looks good, and still has the potential to be as unsettling as its forebear.

I just got Metro: 2033 from a CAG trade.  Maybe I'll get around to playing it before Last Light drops.   ... Maybe ;)

I'm still needing give it a try....hopefully before this hits, but considering I'm just now heading back to Fallout: New Vegas  :-[  and have a list a mile long following it, things may not work out that way.

A friend of mine borrowed Metro 2033 from me last week and loved it.  He's been borrowing an average of 2 games from me every week, beating them, and then exchanging them for 2 more.  All while it's taken me 2 weeks to complete 2 chapters of Shadows of the Damned.   #)

When he inevitably burns through my entire library in the time it takes me to complete 1 game, I'm going to seriously consider quitting my job and cancelling all aspects of my social life.    ;D
