Deep Silver has announced the first DLC for their massively popular Metro: Last Light. The brand new ‘Faction Pack’ is set for worldwide release on Xbox LIVE from July 16th. Set to include three original single player missions, each one casting the player as a different specialist from the warring Factions.
Returning to some classic locations from Metro 2033, these new missions feature brand 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 will cost 400 MSP (varies for dash beta testers) and is the first of four DLC packs to be included in the Metro: Last Light Season Pass that offers a discount over buying the packs separately, and also includes an additional exclusive weapon, the Abzats.
Deep Silver also revealed additional details on the content of the future DLC packs.
The ‘Tower Pack’ presents a unique experience for seasoned Metro gunslingers – a challenge based game mode, with online Leaderboard support, as players fight their way up the combat simulator known as The Tower
The ‘Developer Pack’ boasts a fully stocked Shooting Gallery, the AI Arena and Metro Museum… And a bonus solo mission – The Spiders’ Nest – offers some new tools for dealing with an infestation of the skittering Spider mutants
Lastly the Chronicles Pack will feature original single player missions that cast the player as three of the game’s standout characters – Pavel, Khan and Anna – and explore their side-stories away from Artyom’s adventure
