A free game isn’t quieting angry players

The winter sale is reaching its finale, and the company is celebrating by offering Metro: Last Light Redux for free. The online video game storefront is currently struggling under the demand of players trying to get their free copy of the game, but the deal will be offered until Friday at 9 a.m. EST.

Offering free games to commemorate sales is nothing new, but CD Projekt, the owner of as well as Cyberpunk 2077 developer and publisher CD Projekt Red, is already under scrutiny for the current state of Cyberpunk 2077 as well as reversing its decision to carry the controversial game Devotion in GOG’s store.

The tweet announcing the free game has already been flooded with complaints, jokes, or questions about either Devotion or Cyberpunk 2077.

CD Projekt may be struggling with its reputation among its most vocal players, but Metro: Last Light Redux remains a tense, effective survival first-person shooter, and it’s worth your time.

Last Light breathes life into the colorless tunnels of the post-apocalypse — from the unsettling ordered nature of a Reich military camp to the eccentricities of the metro’s theater zone to creepy catacombs that have been undisturbed by humans for decades,” Polygon’s original review stated. “Each new location builds its own story organically, through incidental dialogue as you pass by NPCs, bodies that litter the ground and (sometimes literal) ghosts haunting every room. It’s a harsh, devastated world but one that compelled me to return to uncover its history.”

Metro: Last Light Redux is also currently on sale for $3.99 through Steam.
