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 games, will be released Aug. 26 on PS4, Windows PC and Xbox One for $49.99. Remastered versions of the individual titles, Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux, will also be available digitally on that date for $24.99 each.
