Metro: Last Light’s Developer Pack DLC lands September 17, allows you to create custom AI battles

Deep Silver has announced the long awaited Developer Pack for Metro: Last Light will be landing on Steam, PSN and Xbox Live on September the 17th. Costing about $4, the pack is an odd combination of stuff, check it out after the cut.

First off: here’s everyone’s favourite, a model viewer like it’s that Bioshock DLC. A shooting range where you can go hog wild with any kind of weapon and complete some kind of marksmanship trial like it’s America’s Army 1. An atmospheric mission where you creep through a spider’s nest with a new flamethrower like it’s Aliens.

Lastly, there’s an AI arena where you can force NPCs to fight for your amusement like some kind of post apocalyptic Caesar (not this guy). Deep Silver’s PR also implies there’re challanges to complete via the AI fighting one another, which sounds really interesting and almost like a strategy game. Imagine “you have 3 Nosalises, sculpt the arena in such a way they can neutralise a patrol of 4 Nazis”. Of course I’m sure it won’t be that robust and there’ll probably be pretty disappointing limits on what you can ask the engine to do, especially since the mode is coded to work on the consoles. Ah well, it’ll still be interesting to see what it ends up being.

As I gather is pretty normal, European Metro fans will pay about one and a half times what American fans do, so apologies for that.

Thanks, Computer and Video Games.

    i think they’re are bullshiting

    on the last site i read about this DLC, they said it’s some virtual reality training machine that simulizes you in tough situations like horde mode
    or something like that

    still i’ll watch it on youtube first, the last DLC was buggy as hell

    Given that it’s 4A, I have no doubt the DLC will be a bit buggy, but the one you’re thinking of was the previous DLC “The Tower” which was exactly that.

    It’s weird how every one of the game’s DLC packs seems to have a different horde mode in it. The first one had that Nazi Assault with the gatling gun, VR horde mode in #2 and now in this third one, the AI gets its own horde mode xD

    @1,
    They actually said that they will be having 4 DLC packs with the first three being non main story related and free stuff. The fourth DLC termed the Chronicles will cover the story of 4 characters: Khan,Umlan,Pavel and Anya.

    I have actually played the first and the 2nd DLC. Wasn’t thrown away, sure they are cheap, but they just didn’t draw my attention.

    I am skipping the third DLC and would totally check the fourth one.

    @3: They are still doing that. 4th DLC.

    It’s not their fault that you failed at doing a little research.
