Titled the Story Trailer, we’re given a first look into the gripping story behind the game. As the raw recruit Ethan Brady, you are plunged into the desperate struggle for freedom as the Resistance try to save the one man who can inspire the people to rise up. That man is Benjamin Walker, the ‘Voice of Freedom’ himself. Just what lengths will the Resistance go to meet their goals and will the end truly justify the means?

Metro Redux Coming to Xbox One

4A Games and Deep Silver are bringing the iconic Metro series to the next generation. METRO REDUX features fully re-mastered and improved versions of both METRO 2033 and METRO: LAST LIGHT, creating the most compelling Metro experience ever.

With re-worked next-gen visuals, smooth 60FPS gameplay on console, as well as new and improved content and features, METRO REDUX is much more than a simple HD upgrade.

For the REDUX edition, Metro 2033 has been completely overhauled:

· The original game has been rebuilt in the latest and greatest iteration of the 4A Engine, bringing all the graphical and gameplay improvements from Last Light to Metro 2033 Redux
· Enjoy completely re-mastered visuals: advanced lighting, dynamic weather, more detailed characters with improved animation, more dynamic destruction and improved smoke, fire and particle effects

· Experience radically improved gameplay: advanced enemy AI, improved combat and stealth mechanics, superior weapon handling and more responsive, intuitive controls plus signature features from Last Light such as the atmospheric ‘mask wipe’ mechanic, weapon customisation, and silent kills and take-downs

Metro: Last Light Redux has also received a graphical face-lift and gameplay improvements that carry across both titles, including new melee animations, and the fan requested ‘Check Watch’ and ‘Check Inventory’ features. It also includes all previously released Season Pass add-on content – a further 10 hours of single-player gameplay.
With METRO REDUX, players now have the choice to experience both Metro games the way they want with the introduction of two unique ‘Play Styles.’

Those who favoured the more survival horror oriented gameplay of Metro 2033 can play both campaigns in the ‘Survival’ Play Style, a fraught slow-burn fight for survival with limited resources, deadlier enemy AI, and slower reload speeds. Those who enjoyed the more action oriented gameplay of Metro: Last Light can try the ‘Spartan’ Play Style, providing Artyom with a powerful set of combat skills and more plentiful resources.

In addition, the legendary Ranger Mode returns to both games, providing the most immersive and challenging experience as the HUD is stripped away and hardcore rules apply.

Upon release, Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux will each be available separately as a digital download for Xbox One as a suggested $24.99 / €19.99 / £15.99.

Alongside the digital release, a boxed compilation containing both games, titled METRO REDUX will be available at retail for a suggested $49.99 / €39.99 / £34.99.

Metro 2033 Redux, Metro: Last Light Redux and the compilation Metro Redux are scheduled for release this Summer for Xbox One and Windows PC

Deep Silver, with developers Rubicon Organization and Smoking Gun Interactive want you to meet the stars of their upcoming motion controlled racing game Freefall Racers for Kinect for Xbox 360. This week, three out of nine reckless racing squirrels from the game are revealed: Ace, Apex and Unna.

FreefallRacers-art-Ace

Ace has decent all around racing abilities. He heroically leaps into any race and loves to perform dazzling aerial maneuvers – even if his abilities do not always match the legend in his head.

FreefallRacers-art-Apex

Apex is confident and one of the best flying squirrels of all time, and often spends a lot of her time covering for Ace’s penchant for getting in over his head.

FreefallRacers-art-Unna

Unna finds it hard to contain her enthusiasm for anything and loves to play, especially mid-air. She might not be the fastest of the squirrels but she can turn on a dime and collect adrenaline boosts quickly.

Each squirrel character makes every race feel different. You will encounter different power-ups and various elements of surprise while racing through demanding tracks. The easily learned controls and the competitive multiplayer mode makes Freefall Racers a fun arcade game for every age. Using Kinect, Freefall Racers offers a challenging and fun racing experience: gain adrenaline while doing audacious maneuvers and use it to get special boosts that will make the race even more exciting.

The game will be available exclusively on the Xbox Live online entertainment network from Microsoft from September 6th, 2013 for $9.99 / €9,99 / £7.99
