Metro: Last Light pre-order DLC detailed

Wednesday, 27th March 2013 14:17 GMT By Dave Cook

Metro: Last Light publisher Deep Silver has unveiled pre-order incentives for its dark, harrowing shooter.

The game drops across North America on May 14 and across Europe on May 17. Pre-orders are open now for the below goodies.

First up is the Ranger Mode DLC, which is being offered to all pre-order customers who buy from supporting stockists. It’s essentially a hardcore mode that completely removes the HUD and caps your resources, but gives you a new AKSU weapon and 100 military-grade rounds to help you along your way.

UK customers pre-ordering from GAME stores will also receive the RPK machine gun that boasts a fearsome rate of fire.

That’s all for now. Meanwhile, I recently spent three hours playing Metro: Last Light and I came across an attempted rape scene. It’s very dark and raised many questions about how mature content is handled in games. Read what I had to say here.

    those fucking nazies from deep silver

    pre order my ass i always go watch the reviews first

    but what bullshit is this??!

    do i have to pay 3-5$ just to play the game on hardmode?!

    *sheding a tear* does the gaming industry have any hope?

    microtransactions everywhere, pre-release DLC everywhere and more annoying cash-grab bullshit from shit companies

    only FROM SOFTWARE and CD PROJEKT RED remain sane

    but for how long? this is truely the dark age of gaming…

    To be fair, I’m pretty sure THQ had the exact same pre-order incentive planned with the ranger mode.

    Deep Silver CM here!

    Ranger Mode was DLC in Metro 2033 as well. Paid DLC for Xbox 360, an update for Steam.

    In Last Light, it changed a bit and it is designed to fit into the entire campaign with some more bells and whistles. It’s not a Hard mode, but a separate mode with its own difficulties.

    As it was already a pre-order incentive during THQ days and available at all the retailers where people in some countries put money down up-front, the options weren’t as easy as it might look like. So we kept it as it was. It’s still an awesome mode for replayability, and one that everyone gets for free by buying one of the first copies in stores; pre-ordering just guarantees you one of those copies.

    It’s spelled “Nazis” without the e btw :)
