Metro: Last Light – Deep Silver clarifies PS4 port, SDK report

Friday, 26th April 2013 09:02 GMT By Dave Cook

Deep Silver has clarified reports that 4A Games was looking to port Metro: Last Light to PS4.

According to an interview with Ukranian tech website ITCChannel, 4A Games creative director Andrew Prokhorov spooled off many interesting nuggets of information regarding Last Light, stating that there will be a PS4 version, and that it could come with the original game.

The interview also claimed a DLC season pass may happen, spanning five pieces of additional content. They may include story missions from the perspective of other characters. Work on the DLC began after the game wrapped though, suggesting they are not on-disc.

The game will supposedly get multiplayer as well, but as a separate release – possibly as an XBLA game

However, a Deep Silver representative has told Joystiq that some of Prokhorov’s comments were lost in translation.

Here’s the statement in full:

“It is no secret that 4A Games do want to release an SDK for Metro, finish the extremely promising multiplayer component and release this in some form, and investigate a PlayStation 4 version provided it makes commercial sense. Although no development has started on any next-gen console versions [of Metro: Last Light]. We have confirmed these hopes and ideas plenty of times before.

“However, all these ideas are just ideas at the moment. It will be some time before we can officially commit to any of these projects or suggest when they might materialize. They genuinely might all happen, but equally none of them might happen. Anyone expecting Metro: Last Light as a PS4 launch game is probably going to be disappointed.”

    Hmmmm…now, being interested in the game (not enough to pre-order it, but I am keeping my eye on it), I am actually hold off on a PS3 version if the PS4 one comes with the original.

    @2 I would man. I’ve seen this running at maximum spec on PC back in 2011, and it looked incredible then. PS4 may be the definitive build from a tech stand-point.

    Then again, I know fuck all about specs so I may have just got that wrong. But yes, it’s a very shiny game.

    So…the decision is clear.

    Cerny said yesterday, that PC games can be ported now in weeks not months on the PS4.
    I guess I will wait and get the game on PS4, to see how PC ported games can/will be look like.

    and PS3 can do games in 120 FPS.

    People believe everything they read on the internet.

    Mark Cerny should say that PS4 can run games in 4K so console fanboys could believe in it too.

    @6

    Are you some kind of hardware dev? or software dev? do you have any experience of porting games/software?

    Any experience in game dev? A degree in a subject like this?

    Hey, I guess you also believe that PS4 is the most powerfull device out there that will get every game in 60 frames per second. Woohoo. Keep up the Sony party alive.

    @#5 Here is a link to the original interview with Mark Cerny on Gamasutra. It goes into far more detail with regards to the enhanced tech in the GPU. The article is three pages long and the bit about asynchronous compute is particularly interesting.

    I like Deep Silver’s PR department so far. They seem much more open than the standard publisher.

    @14 I know, right? Make sense that they are open.

    “Hey, we don’t want anyone getting any wrong ideas and to start all these bad rumors. Maybe we should clarify some things”
