THQ's 'executive vice president, Core Games' Danny Bilson has introduced the new Metro: Last Light by stating that its predecessor, Metro 2033 was a 'flawed gem' and we didn't understand it.
"We believe that Metro 2033 was a flawed masterpiece," of the Russian underground outing, "It was a beautiful, original game that didn't get the marketing support it needed. We won't make that mistake with Metro: Last Light. This game improves on the original in every way - it will have more polish, deeper and more sophisticated gameplay, and satisfyingly visceral combat, without losing what our fans loved about the original.
"Metro: Last Light is another artful piece of game development from an Eastern European studio that will thrill and terrify anyone looking for a more cerebral experience than your typical first person shooter."
Here's the skinny: "Metro: Last Light pitches the player into the midst of a desperate civil war for control over a doomsday device that threatens to destroy humanity forever. The epic single-player campaign and unique multiplayer experience will benefit from the extraordinary lighting, physics and destruction made possible by Metro: Last Light's bespoke 4A Engine technology."
