Metro: Last Light packaged with Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 and above

Saturday, 20th April 2013 14:06 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Those planning on picking up Metro: Last Light who are also looking to purchase a new video card may want to consider killing two birds with one stone: Nvidia has announced the game will come bundled with its GeForce GTX cards – 660 or above.

The cards include PhysX effects and 3D Vision Surround built on Kepler architecture.

Once you have your card box in hand, upon opening it you will find a card code which will unlock the game when it releases next month. You have until December 31 to make use of the code.

A list of retailers which sell the cards can be found through Nvidia’s website along with information on regional terms and conditions.

Metro: Last Light will be available May 14 within the US and May 17 across Europe on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

PC users can find a list of minimum, recommended and optimum specs through a previous post on the matter.

    bundle a game with a graphics card that smart

    but as a console player i don’t have to spend cash on upgrading any time soon since most games get optimised for our crappy console specs which looks gorgeous on a big ass HDTV

    @1 Then the next consoles come out and all the developers start making games for that console instead.

    @1, Thanks for that super relevant insight.

    Metro is better known as optimised for high end PC hardware, but never mind.

    The first one wasn’t optimized that well though. I haven’t had any problems on any AAA-games for the last year or so, but Metro 2033 gets chuggy on high.

    Yeah, Metro 2033 was optimized like a potato…

    The game works fine, if you have a GTX 590…

    Mere mortals have to sit with ADOF off and similar tweaks, I can run mostly high settings ok, the 5809 struggled a bit at times, the 680 has more verve to it. VRAM is a bit of a killer, too.

    @1 1. Like DuckOfDestiny said, you have to upgrade.
    and 2. I’m sure this game will look so much better on your stone age console compared to how it will look like on ours PCs..
