Publisher Deep Silver and developer 4A Games have confirmed that the highly-atmospheric shooter Metro: Last Light will be making its way to Mac on September 10. The Mac version of the game will be available through either the App Store or Steam. The companies have also confirmed that a Linux version of the game is in development, and is scheduled for release some time later this year.
"The Mac and Linux versions of Metro: Last Light are further testimony to the power and flexibility of the 4A Engine," said Oles Shishkovstov, Chief Technical Officer at 4A Games in a prepared statement. "Development was handled in house by 4A games, and we are very happy with the results. We hope that Mac & Linux gamers will appreciate our efforts to create the best possible version for their machines."
Now get depressed about the apocalypse on your Mac or Linux!
Metro: Last Light on Steam will support Steam Play, meaning that owners of any Steam version will automatically find the game added to their PC, Mac and Linux Steam libraries. Thanks to this, you won’t have to buy another copy of the game to play it on your Mac or Linux computers. Both the new versions of the game will also be getting all of the DLC packs as the PC and console versions.
The Metro: Last Light Season Pass, and the Faction Pack and Tower Pack DLC will be available at launch for the Mac release, and the upcoming Developer and Chronicles Packs will release on Steam and the App Store alongside the PC and console releases.
Last month, Metro: Last Light got its first major DLC in the form of the Faction Pack. The DLC 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 get to play a special Detachment Sniper of the Redline, a Reich Heavy and a Polis Ranger in training. Each of these characters has their own varied level designs and mechanics.
