It´s only been a short while since Deep Silver released the dark and gritty FPS Metro: Last Light
. Today, the publisher has announced that 4A Games will be continuing to support and expand on the game throughout the coming summer by releasing a number of single player DLC packs.
Currently there are four different packs planned for release. The ‘Faction Pack’ and the ‘Chronicles Pack’ will include new, original single player gameplay that expands on the Metro: Last Light universe and story. The ‘Tower Pack’ will present a unique solo challenge to Metro veterans, although what that exactly means at this stage remains unclear. Finally, the ‘Developer Pack’ will give creative players some interesting tools with which to explore the world of Metro.
According to the publishers,
“Artyom’s story may have been concluded in Metro: Last Light, but there are other characters with stories to tell, some familiar locations that fans of the Metro series wanted to revisit, and some new challenges that 4A wanted to explore,” said Andrew Prokhorov, Creative Director at 4A Games. “Since completing the game we have been working on these new stories and hope to release them throughout the summer.”
The exact pricing of the individual packs has not been revealed although it will be made easier by those purchasing the newly announced Season pass which is available from the Xbox Live Marketplace. This season pass will enable to pre-purchase all future DLC at a discount as well as having the bonus of an additional in-game weapon, the deadly Abzats, a semi-automatic shotgun which can fire six shells in one single blast.
The first chapter will be the ‘Faction Pack’ , set for release in June 2013.
