Metro 2033 and its sequel, Metro: Last Light, are getting next-gen remakes this summer with "Redux" versions coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC. Now, publisher Deep Silver has revealed the first gameplay footage of both titles in Metro Redux.
Remade on the latest iteration of the 4A Engine, these remakes look noticeably better with improved lighting, animations, weather effects and more. Deep Silver's global brand manager Huw Beynon confirmed on Twitter that the Metro remakes will run at 60 fps.
It's not just the visuals that will look better as these Redux versions will offer improved gameplay as well. Certain elements like enemy AI, stealth mechanics and weapon handling are being improved this time around.
Furthermore, there will be options to play both campaigns with two different "Play Styles". "Survival" features the limited resource-based gameplay of the first game, while "Spartan" mode gives players more plentiful resources along with a more powerful set of skills like we saw in Last Light.
Purists, don't despair, as the ultra-difficult HUD-less Ranger mode will be included as well for both campaigns.
The Redux versions of the Metro games are reasonably cheap, too, for those who missed out on these games the first time around or want to relive them in their definitive edition. Both titles come with all of their DLC packed in for a total of £15.99 / €19.99 / $24.99 each digitally, or they can be purchased together in the boxed Metro Redux compilation for £34.99 / €39.99 / $49.99.
Additionally, the Steam versions of both titles can be pre-ordered for half off if you already own the original game. [Note: This doesn't work with the bundle, so you'll have to purchase the games separately.]
A dedicated Linux and Steam OS version of Metro Redux will be available later this year following its PS4, Xbox One and PC release.
