Greater amount of difficulty, additional weapon and equipment in Metro: Last Light Limited Edition to make the experience even more hardcore.
THQ has released a limited edition of its new survival horror first-person shooter Metro: Last Light that is due to arrive on March 2013 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
The limited edition of the game is available to pre-order and will feature a copy of the game, greater difficulty through Ranger Mode, an extra weapon and bonus equipment.
Ranger Mode had been designed by 4A Games to present players with a great amount of difficulty, challenging their skills and ability to adapt to a more demanding setting.
The mode will not feature any heads-up display (HUD) and bring down the number of bullets that they can carry at one time. The combat will also be tougher than the one that the players would have come across in normal mode.
In addition to a more demanding setting, players will find themselves getting access to a modified Russian assault rifle. This gun may be compact, but would prove to be as deadly as anything when handled correctly, making it an ideal weapon of choice while trying to survive against overwhelming odds.
Metro: Last Light Limited Edition will also feature extra military grade bullets. Carrying more killing power and at the same time serving as a currency for Metro, it would be up to the players to decide whether they want to use it to deliver death or if they would rather use it to purchase resources that may help them in extending their life.
The creative strategist at THQ Huw Beynon believes that the new difficulty mode will bring players closer to the experience that has become associated with the brand, something that is bound to make the game even more satisfying.
“‘Ranger Mode’ provides the definitive Metro experience,” said Benyon. “It’s deservedly regarded as one of the most immersive, atmospheric challenges in gaming and we think fans will be very happy to see its return in the Metro: Last Light Limited Edition.”
The North Americans who pre-order Metro: Last Light Limited Edition via the PlayStation Network (PSN) will also receive a free digital copy of the first-person shooter Homefront at launch, while also getting a Metro: Last Light PSN theme immediately after they pre-order the game.
As far as a playable demo of THQ’s latest offering is concerned, the game’s Twitter account made it quite clear that there is very little chance for the players to get a taste of the game prior to its release because of tight timeline to complete development and prepare it for release.
Metro: Last Light is scheduled to release during the first quarter of 2013.
