Remastered Versions of Metro 2033, Metro: Last Light Hitting Xbox One, PS4, and PC on August 26

Deep Silver confirms release date for Metro Redux.

Deep Silver today announced that Metro Redux, the upcoming bundle that includes remastered versions of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on August 26. The game comes to Europe three days later on August 29.

The $50 Metro Redux also contains all previously released DLC for both games, as well the uber-difficult Ranger Mode. The remastered versions of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light will also be sold separately across console and PC as downloads for $25 each. If you already own Metro 2033 or Metro: Last Light on Steam, you can get the remastered versions for 50 percent off.

The new versions of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light include "never-seen-before" content and new gameplay features, as well as "outstanding graphical fidelity." The resolution is unknown, but both games will run at 60fps.

When the bundle was originally announced last month, Deep Silver explained that gameplay has been improved "radically," and now includes "advanced enemy AI, improved combat and stealth mechanics, superior weapon handling, and more responsive, intuitive controls." Visuals have also been boosted, now featuring "advanced lighting, dynamic weather, more detailed characters with improved animation, more dynamic destruction, and improved smoke, fire, and particle effects."

Dedicated Linux and SteamOS versions of Metro Redux are also in the works and are scheduled to launch sometime in 2014. We got to see Metro Redux at E3, and you can watch our interview with Deep Silver about the game in the video above.

Just bought 2033 today and played about an hour of it..... Complete waste of money. Thank god I didn't buy them both. The Russian accents really got on my nerves..... every character seemed the same. The monsters look like bootleg versions of rakghouls from KOTOR. The overall feel of the game is just cheap and subpar. It's a shame.

Just bought these 2 games for XB1. They are so bad... it's unbelievable!!! The voice acting is non-existent. The story is feeble at best. The enemies are... are... out of a 6 year olds imagination done by a 7 year old...

I regret buying these! I would regret pirating these... they are so bad...

Its worth it for consoles but what's in it for us PC gamers? Extra missions? Metro is one of the best looking games out there so I don't think there is any graphical improvement to be done. Perhaps better optimization for mid range rigs?

Both games were amazing, worth playing just for the dialogue and voice acting, superb atmopshere, the section in the first game, "ghosts" is worth playing the game for and the characters are the best in a pc game.  Hope these will run ok since both were system killers, the first particularly.  The ideas in the games are what give the story real depth.  The games show the superficiality of much game development that postures after depth.  I thought the first game was particularly stunning, although some of the mechanics were clunky but the second game was superb.

didnt see this anywhere on PS4 store for preorder. Liked these games so I will be picking this up when ever I see it released.

Never played either. Definitely picking this up, sounds like a steal.

I'll wait for the price drop. I played both of these games and thought they were alright, but nothing really wowed me. Perhaps now with a graphical update they'll be a little more impressive.

Last Light Redux is simply a cash grab on PC and 2033 Redux looks worse than original

I think I have 2033. If I like it might get last light remastered. Though it looks more like a PSN+ material.


This guy doesn't sound like russian

Still no reason for me to get a PS4 this year because the remastering bull is not worth it it really isn't say what you like mentions games that are currently out I have played Shadow Fall, I have played BF4 on PS4 but I don't think it's worth £350 for the price just yet maybe next summer

What the hell, I'll pass on this one since everybody loves remaking sht how about a scarface remaster.

Hope this bankrupts this company, not even games from the 90's need remastering. Waste of time.

Why do I get the feeling there will be a Remastered version of Watch Dogs as well... -_-

Played 2033 on xbox 360, the updated mechanics in the redux ala last light look great. I will get this for PS4 over X1 I think. Its a SP experience so the lack of dedicated servers dont matter, plus ive heard it runs at a slightly higher resolution on PS4.

Yay something I may buy for my x1 and might actually like It be the first time for anything really..

this game plays bad and then graphics are even worse especially for a remake.

I could understand a metro2033 redux.. But for last light you are basically just charging us money for a performance update.

The interesting thing about this collection is the gameplay improvements on Metro 2033, i'll buy it just for that.

I have Metro 2033 on pc.  The thing I'm wondering is if the redux versions will actually look any better on pc.  The pc version already looked great.


I'm also a little weary of reduxes, as Riddick Escape from Butcher Bay was far easier in the remake than the original.

Metro was ok. 


It was no STALKER. I thought STALKER was grittier and more interesting on the whole, but metro was kind of cool. The claustrophobic sadine can living spaces felt very realistic as what it could potentially be in a time of crisis. (without the mutants obviously lol, but hey WHO KNOWS, since science is fcking around with genomes and gmo's so much, we could have fcking mutants running around))

I am glad the console players also finally get the chance to play those two epic games on the consoles. Metro 2033 was a sleeper hit back on its PC release date and the Xbox 360 version was choppy and bugged but with this new gen and the optimization the remastered version will kick ass.

This is great news. Metro Last light was free on PS3 and I really enjoyed it so this dual remaster is a day one purchase for me on PS4. When playing it I actually wished it was on PS4 instead because the PS3 started to struggle towards the end as it stepped up a gear. The XB1 will probably be getting an exclusive Limited Edition again (resolution limited to 900p and lower quality eye candy). There's no sense in ignoring the trend so I say what I see.

All we need now is Skyrim, Far Cry 3, Red Dead Redemption and the Uncharted trio remastered. Yeah In know, but I'm allowed to dream.

I was hoping this would be done. The real games I want though are the Souls games.  Please  do this.  PLEASE !!!  Do the Dead Space games as well.  But Souls first.  The PS4 would have all 3 I would think, so that is the one I want.   I would settle for any of them.

And here I was getting worried that there wouldn't be any games available for when I eventually went next-gen. At this rate I'm going to have to book a couple of weeks holiday.

Wow great time to play the series for the first time then. :)

I never finished the 1st game and never even played the 2nd at all. For me, these Remastered versions are most welcome.

Jasper_73

cool I think ill get this. I couldn't really get into the first one. But with better visuals, AI, stealth and weapon mechanics. I'll certainly like to try it again. I never downloaded the dlc and with some never before seen content I think its a good buy to play again. I dont know how much $50 is in Pounds but I know its a bit cheaper than the usual rrp. To all the whingers out there no ones forcing you to buy it if you think its too pricey. plus you can always wait until you see it cheep on the second hand market.

Still too much money if you own both of them already i mean for pc users at least it should have been free or like 5 buksat most to upgrade.

Hmm, 50% off sounds pretty good if you haven't played them yet and buy the originals right now on the Steam sale. Euro price today is €1.99 for Metro 2033 and €6.79 for Last Light 'complete'.

It's half price if you already bought the games. So £17 for a graphics and AI patch. Skyrim has had 12 mods like this in the last year and a half.

I love Metro but this is deliberately ripping people off.

A more shameless money grab then re-releasing the "3d" version of a movie.  Don't give studios money they don't deserve.

It's going to be a great bargain bin title while waiting for in between releases. Only remastered edition I want to hear about now is mass effect, as I've never played the first 2.

Watch_Dogs looks a lot better when you play in the dead of night with low gamma. I can't tell Chicago in the rain from the E3 footage. Better car handling is all this needs.

@niroshan007 

You just don't get it do you. Watch Dogs is already remastered compared to the PS3 port. A port is on PS4. Of course any games that can still hold their own as true classics in 5 years time may get a future remaster up to PS5 status when that finally arrives. For now we have PS4 and games look superb when played on it. Unlike the XB1, Watch Dogs looks superb on PS4, even in day time. On XB1 it only looks good at night because darkness hides all the flaws the console just can't render at a high enough standard.

You need to realise that although great gameplay is timeless, games don't age well visually over time as new powerful hardware comes along. So in order to keep a great game playable well into the future we need to remaster the graphics to match the latest quality people have come to expect.

@DrKill09 Just pirate it and see if its worth your money, long gone are the days where i pay money first and discover what i get after.

@pongley These remastered titles aren't meant to be re-purchased by the same people. They are A) meant to provide devs a quick and dirty way to get familiar with new SDK's for future next gen games without rushing some half baked title to market and B) opens the door to a whole new gaming crowd that for whatever countless number of reasons never got to enjoy these.


Of all the games to see a re-release with improved visuals and broader availability there can be way worse titles to choose from.

@80sgamerftw now that would be good the first game ran like s**t on 360 when using the spells (I know they weren't called spells but cant remember what it was called). It ran so bad I never finished it, nor did I play the others as I wanted to play them all in sequence.

@pongley I personally have Last Light, but don't have the original. However I plan to buy this release to play both games even if played the hell out of Last Light already (but none of the DLC). Being able to play the original and all the DLC for the second game seems good to me.

@pongley @everson_rm @spenta You know, not everyone played them right? The first one, was only for 360 and pc, so a lot of ppl didn't play it. EDIT: I played first on pc, and the game was great, but it put my "new pc" in its knees that time.
