Default Sequel to Metro 2033 announced

First Sight Of Metro: Last Light | Rock, Paper, Shotgun

Loved the first game beyond all belief, and loved to book to tears (waiting for 2034 to be translated!).

Metro: First Light will not exactly be 2034 though, since the book is about Hunter.

Also... MULTIPLAYER. Yup. 4A games is creeping up my favorites list.

I guess I need to start saving for a new GPU haha, can barley do 2033 with 3D on a 580!

If you havent played the first game I encourage you to, its absolutely outstanding! I was considering doing a review of it, but I dont think anyone wants to listen to me, or watch me play a game haha.

Ugh. Multiplayer. No thanks.

Metro 2033 was a great game because of its lack of multiplayer. If the sequel has it, I'm predicting the single player campaign will suffer. :(

My one issue is its pulled out of thin air, since its not based off of 2034 (since after 2033, Artyom is just... Well thats the end of his story...).

But im optimistic for it, I hope the multiplayer is more of a co-op or defence/exploration type of mode. I guess we will see when the info drops.

By the way, have you read the book sky? It made me have way more understanding in that game.

Damn that looked nice.

I still haven't finished the first one since I got stuck in one spot that I just couldn't get past. Might have to get back into once I get done with the current games I'm playing.
