Metro Last Light

Our very own Jake Gaskill managed to get a pre-E3 2011 Metro: Last Light sneak preview. As the sequel to cult classic Metro 2033 from Eastern European developers 4A Games, it's taking a decidedly different approach to your doomsday experience:

“We want to keep everything that was great about the first game and that our fans loved,” Beynon explained. “We’re not going to westernize it or dumb it down. The design philosophy isn’t turn everything up to 11. We want to maintain and preserve that unique soul and spirit, that Eastern European perspective. We want this to appeal to the more cerebral gamer. We want it to be a more slow paced affair, and we’re going to preserve those moments of horror and exploration and the gameplay mechanics that reward the more investigative player.”

There's plenty more to check out; from neo-Nazis and gas masked tribes of survivors to surface monsters and cavernous subway tunnels. So what are you waiting for? Check out G4's Metro: Last Light preview already!
