THQ have today quashed the speculation and confirmed that there is indeed DLC in the works for the surprisingly successful Metro 2033
The Ranger Pack - that's the DLC's name, just to be patronising - will add new weapons and new game rules. Big whoop right? How about this enticing titbit: the DLC will be accompanied by new achievements, worth 250G.
THQ have described The Ranger Mode rules like this:
In standard Ranger Mode, ammo is dramatically reduced and all weapons cause more damage. Your foes are deadlier than ever – but so are you! ‘Ranger Hardcore’ adds an additional challenge as the HUD is totally removed, creating the most immersive Metro 2033 experience yet.
The two new weapons have also been named: the Heavy Automatic Shotgun and Miller’s signature gun, the Volt Driver.
No price or release date yet, but THQ have stated that it's coming "in the very near future" and will confirm the price closer to release.
