Metro: Last Light E3 2012 Gameplay Demo
Metro: Last Light is one game I am eagerly anticipating, and given the swathe of E3 2012 nominations and awards the title has already received, I’m not the only one keeping a close eye on this game. Metro: Last Light certainly made a lasting impression on the E3 audience during the live gameplay demo, and now those who were unable to attend E3 can see the entire unedited playthrough.
The gameplay demo showcases exactly what Metro: Last Light will offer to those purchasing the title when it releases in Q1 2013. The Metro series depicts a post-apocalyptic world that is incredibly well-realised, one that practically oozes that gritty, bleak, atmospheric moodiness you would expect to experience within a post-nuclear attack centred game.
The game itself is the sequel to 2010’s critically acclaimed Metro 2033. According to the game’s Official website:
It is the year 2034.
Beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside – and within.
Mutants stalk the catacombs beneath the desolate surface, and hunt amidst the poisoned skies above. But rather than stand united, the station-cities of the Metro are locked in a struggle for the ultimate power, a doomsday device from the military vaults of D6. A civil war is stirring that could wipe humanity from the face of the earth forever.
As Artyom, burdened by guilt but driven by hope, you hold the key to our survival – the last light in our darkest hour…
Check out the full unedited playthrough below. I recommend turning off the lights and cracking open a can of nuclear-war provision beans for maximum enjoyment.
