Back in January, Metro: Last Light was picked up by Koch Media, parent company to Dead Island publisher Deep Silver. There are only a few short months keeping us away from the game, and I’m finding it increasingly difficult to wait.
As its name would imply, the future is decidedly grim. Metro 2033 wasn’t a very cheery game, but its sequel looks to be cranking up the depressing factor a bit more. It’s fitting, seeing as this is a post-apocalyptic game where most of humanity has been wiped out and what’s left is slowly dying underground. Even still, watching this makes me want to take a bubble bath as I listen to Carly Rae Jepsen.
Metro: Last Light launches on May 14 in the US and May 17 in Europe for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
