It is the year 2034. Beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside – and within. Mutants stalk the catacombs beneath the desolate surface and hunt amidst the poisoned skies above. But rather than stand united, the station-cities of the Metro are locked in a struggle for the ultimate power, a doomsday device from the military vaults of D6. A civil war is stirring that could wipe humanity from the face of the earth forever. As Artyom, burdened by guilt but driven by hope, you hold the key to our survival – the last light in our darkest hour.
Metro: Last Light Redux looks to be only leaving Xbox Game Pass for console and will still be playable in the Game Pass for PC, albeit with its own separate Windows 10 achievement list. The first person stealth shooter has 49 achievements and can be completed in around 20 to 25 hours. There are a few difficulty specific achievements and plenty of collectables, so it's worth following our highly-rated Metro: Last Light Redux walkthrough.
