Deep Silver has officially announced that 4A Games will be releasing Metro Redux this summer, bringing together Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux in one boxed collection for Xbox One and PS4. Additionally, each game will also be available to download separately, if you’d rather try the series out before taking the full leap.

Like most revamped games coming to current-gen consoles, Metro Redux features “re-worked next-gen visuals.”, including completely overhauled 1080p graphics that will be running at 60 fps. “Improved content and features” are also among the enhancements to Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, with each game rebuilt using the latest iteration of the 4A Engine. Enhanced lighting, dynamic weather, more character detail, improved animation, more dynamic destruction and boosted smoke, fire and particle effects should help make Metro Redux a tasty-looking proposition.


4A has also worked to improve Metro’s gameplay, with better enemy AI, as well as improved combat and stealth mechanics, “superior” weapon handling and more responsive, intuitive controls. Metro: Last Light Redux will also include all of the game’s Season Pass content, adding an additional ten hours of single-player gameplay. Ranger Mode will be included as standard with both games, and two new play styles have also been introduced: ‘Survival’ and ‘Spartan’.

Survival tasks players with getting through both games with limited resources and even deadlier enemy AI, as well as slow reload speeds, while the Spartan play style arms protagonist Artyom with a more powerful set of combat skills and plenty of resources at his disposal.

Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light were two of the best and most under rated games of the previous console generation, so if you’ve got the spare cash, do yourself a favor and try them out. Metro Redux will be available as a boxed compilation with both games for $49.99 / €39.99 / £34.99, while Metro 2033 will also be available separately as digital downloads for $24.99 / €19.99 / £15.99 when it launches for Xbox One, PS4 and PC this summer.
