Metro: Last Light ‘Faction Pack’ DLC out next week

Wednesday, 10th July 2013 16:10 GMT By Staff

Metro: Last Light’s ‘Faction Pack’ DLC will be out next week.

Here’s some images for it:

The ‘Faction Pack’ includes three original single player missions, each casting the player as a different specialist from the warring Factions. Returning to some classic locations from Metro 2033, these missions feature new weapons, the return of “a truly terrifying mutant foe,” and offer three distinct gameplay challenges such as:

  • As a Special Detachment Sniper of the Redline, players must infiltrate a heavily guarded Reich Outpost at night, under the cover of a deadly radioactive storm…
  • …Before defending the front line as a Reich ‘Heavy’, armed with some of the most devastating weaponry found in the Metro.
  • Lastly, players take the role of a Polis Ranger in training, tasked with exploring the vast Library complex for artifacts and relics. Salvage can be exchanged for ammunition, filters and hazard suits allowing ever deeper exploration into the Library. Rangers are advised to light torches and leave a trail of lights so they can find their way back to the base before their precious oxygen runs out…

Deep Silver also revealed additional details on the content of the future DLC packs:

  • The ‘Tower Pack’ presents a unique experience for seasoned Metro gunslingers – a challenge based game mode, with online Leaderboard support, as players fight their way up the combat simulator known as The Tower.
  • The ‘Developer Pack’ boasts a fully stocked Shooting Gallery, the AI Arena and Metro Museum… And a bonus solo mission – The Spiders’ Nest – offers some new tools for dealing with an infestation of the skittering Spider mutants.
  • The Chronicles Pack will feature original single player missions that cast the player as three of the game’s standout characters – Pavel, Khan and Anna – and explore their side-stories away from Artyom’s adventure.

After teasing the above images earlier today, Deep Silver has announced the Faction Pack will release on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 July 16. The PSN version will arrive in Europe on July 17.

The Faction Pack is $4.99/£3.99/€4.99/400 MS Points but you can get all four packs in the Season Pass for $14.99/£11.99/€14.99/1200 MS points.

    first day dlc wasn’t enough so the milking continues… you want to play the game like how it was meant to be played?, lol what a joke… anyway if you haven’t bought into this crap yet, and you don’t want to be exploited. i suggest you wait for the goty edition that will be coming next year. it will have everything on disc for a budget game price.

    Feels good that they don’t have multiplayer so they can do single player DLC’s like this.
