Metro: Last Light PC system requirements revealed

Recommended settings dug up.

Metro: Last Light developer 4A Games has revealed the system specs you'll need to enjoy its upcoming subterranean shooter.

It's been nearly two years since the game was announced as Metro 2034. A new publisher and a name change later, there's now less than a month until its 17th May European release.

Eurogamer last played the game just before Christmas, when Chris Donlan described it as "horribly beautiful" in our Metro: Last Light preview. "A journey that's linear, but filled with punchy moment-to-moment choices, and grimly told," he wrote, "yet littered with tricksy humour and wonderful sights."
