Metro Redux looks vastly improved over Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light

Metro Redux is the upcoming package containing remastered versions of 4A Games' Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light. This six-minute video, released today by publisher Deep Silver, shows off numerous ways in which the Redux versions improve upon the original games. The most apparent upgrade is in the frame rate: 4A is targeting 60 frames per second on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The studio confirmed earlier this year that Metro Redux will run in 1080p on PS4, and in 900p on Xbox One. 4A also made notable tweaks to gameplay, bringing features from Last Light into 2033 and including a variety of difficulty modes for players who want a stiffer challenge. And the studio expanded parts of both titles by adding new areas to post-apocalyptic Moscow. Metro Redux, a disc-based bundle of both...

Developer 4A Games is re-releasing its two Metro games — 2010's Metro 2033 and last year's Metro: Last Light — and bundling them into a single package: a "true director's cut" of those titles called Metro Redux.

Metro: Last Light's 'Mobius' trailer was made by a single artist

A post-release trailer for 4A Games' post-apocalyptic shooter Metro: Last Light was the hard work of a single production artist working on the game. Alexander "Monakh" Bereznyak, originally hired by 4A Games as a capture artist, worked on Last Light as the lead technical artist for the game's production team. All the while throughout the development, though, he was working on a promotional trailer for the game on the side. Titled "Mobius," the trailer is a snapshot glimpse of a single moment in a raging battle as mutated monstrosities flood the tunnels of the metro quarters where survivors eke out a day-to-day existence. In our official Polygon review, we found Metro: Last Light a rewarding experience that made it worth putting up with some nagging technical issues.

Precursor Games took the crowdfunding campaign for Shadow of the Eternals to Kickstarter. Watch Dogs' lead story designer weighs in on the role of surveillance and social networks. Our Metro: Last Light review points out a few technical hiccups with the game but details an experience worth having in spite of them.
