Metro: Last Light scheduled for early 2013 release
THQ have confirmed that Metro: Last Light, developed by 4A Games, is now set to release in early 2013, promising that more information regarding the game will be unveiled “closer to E3”.
“Big update everyone”, a spokesperson stated on the game’s Facebook page. “THQ just announced that Metro: Last Light is now scheduled for release in early 2013. That may be a little later than you were expecting, but trust us – the wait will be worth it! You’ll be hearing a lot more about Metro: Last Light closer to E3, so please be patient. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been up to…”
Previously confirmed for Wii U during a third-party developer montage at E3 2011, Metro: Last Light is set in the year 2034 beneath the ruins of a post-apocalyptic Moscow. The remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats both outside and within, with mutants stalking the catacombs beneath the surface and poisoned skies above.
Rather than stand united, the station-cities of the Metro are locked in a struggle for ultimate power – a doomsday device from the military vaults of D6. A civil war is brooding that could wipe humanity from Earth altogether, and the player, in the role of Artyom, hold the key to its survival.
Metro: Last Light will release during Q1 2013.
