Developer 4A Games and publisher Deep Silver have released the DLC for its post-apocalyptic first-person shooter Metro: Last Light. The DLC, dubbed the Faction Pack, is now available on your online store of choice (Steam, Xbox Live, PlayStation Network) for $4.99 (Rs 300 approx) or 400 Microsoft Points if you're on Xbox Live.
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 and the return of a terrifying mutant foe. Players will get to play a special Detachment Sniper of the Redline, a Reich Heavy and a Polis Ranger in training. Each of these characters will have their own varied level designs and mechanics.
The apocalypse now has DLC
As the Sniper, players must infiltrate a heavily guarded Reich outpost at night under the cover of a deadly radioactive storm. The Heavy will be armed with some of the most devastating munitions found in the game. Ranger in training is tasked with exploring the Library complex for artifacts and relics. Salvage can be exchanged for ammunition, mask filters and hazard suits, which will allow deeper exploration into the complex.
The next DLCs that will be making its way to the game are the Tower Pack, the Developer Pack and the Chronicles Pack. The Tower Pack will have a challenge-based game mode with an online leaderboard. It involves players fighting their way up a combat simulator known as the Tower.
The Developer Pack has a shooting gallery, the AI Arena and the Metro Museum, along with a bonus solo mission dubbed the Spiders’ Nest. It offers new tools for dealing with an infestation of spider mutants.
The last DLC will be the Chronicles Pack, which has original single-player missions that cast the player as three of the game’s fan-favourite characters—Pavel, Khan and Anna—as they explore events that are completely different from protagonist Artyom’s adventures.
