The third piece of DLC for Metro: Last Light, the "Developer Pack”, is arriving next week and according to its developers, Deep Silver, it is “a little schizophrenic”. The pack will include a substantial solo mission, by the name of the “Spiders’ Lair”, in which the player must escape from a spider-infested missile silo while keeping on top of their extremely limited resources.
Deep Silver described “Spider’s Lair” via their developer blog
as “pure survival horror”, adding:
You’ll be frantically wiping gore from your cracked mask, and hunting for spare filters as your oxygen ticks relentlessly down. The flamethrower’s fuel tank needs to be constantly cranked to maintain pressure, and you’ll need your torch on full beam at all times…
The other half of the “Developer Pack”, on the other hand, is something very different and is actually the result of a test level the developers used to experiment with different weapons and AI during the game’s development. The pack gives players an opportunity to try out every possible weapon configuration and take part in a series of marksman challenges in the Shooting Gallery. The AI Arena will allow you to pit AI enemies against each other while the Metro Museum gives players the opportunity to get “up close and personal” with the game’s many mutants and NPCs.
The “Developer Pack” also includes a brand new weapon not found anywhere else in the game, though Deep Silver are holding back on the details for now.
The “Developer Pack” is due to be released on September 17th and will cost US$3.99 / £3.19 / €3.99. Alternatively, Season Pass holders will be able to download the content in-game at no extra cost.
