The HD updates of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light confirmed earlier today run in 1080p on PlayStation 4, a Deep Silver representative told GameSpot . However, there's less certainly about Xbox One. "Xbox One [resolution] is not yet final," the spokesperson said.

Both versions of the game include updated visuals comprising the following: "advanced lighting, dynamic weather, more detailed characters with improved animation, more dynamic destruction and improved smoke, fire, and particle effects."

Regarding frame-rate, both the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light run at a "silky smooth" 60fps, Deep Silver says.

Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC individually later this summer for $25 each. You'll also be able to buy the games together, in a physical package called Metro Redux with all previously released DLC, across PS4, Xbox One, and PC for $50.

I'll have to replay both of these games because they'll be like entirely new experiences at a higher resolution!

So now we're re-hashing remakes of games just two or three years after they were released huh? HD remakes of games that were already in HD...amazing stuff.

Hope they fixed the AI...it was pretty dodgy in Metro 2033 for PC.

Graphically, this game was pretty damn punishing at the highest settings. I suspect the XBO will not run 1080 given the trend and what I know about this game.

Still should look great though.

I knew it the PS4 is going to always have better multi-platform games this 8th generation . Microsoft shouldn't had cut corners with the hardware just to include the Kincet and it's hurting their sales with the Xbox One, even with the Kincet-less bundle coming out at the same price as the PS4, people will still keep buying the PS4 because if it's superior hardware.

More 1080p news GameSpot! YAY! Jesus Christ, this site has fallen off so hard both in terms of reviews and news that it's practically a joke. Sad to see, really.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Come, come now. Who else is going to keep us as up-to-date on game resolutions as GameSpot's Associate Editor of 1080p News Eddie Makuch? He's the only guy I've read who can consistently troll his own articles.

The man is a virtuoso of click-bait.

The frame rate is of more pressing concern to me in the heat of the moment.


After all, 1080p means fluck all if the game looks like a slide show.

wow, i guess gaming has just a core audience, which doesn't grow every passing year and every gamer has played each single game when they were released...

both of these titles are very good games and what's the problem with upgrading their aesthetics for a new generation of consoles and gamers...

i had not played tomb raider on ps3 and i am glad that i didn't because i enjoyed it a lot on ps4... believe you me i am not a new gamer... :)

720p and 1080p is HD. Everything is HD. The only things that aren't are 480p.

720p and 1080p are NOT THE SAME. Lol. I bought mmy first 720p 50" in 2006. I bought my first 1080p 52" in 2010.....HUGE difference. You sir are wrong. Full HD starts at 1080p. Do some reading on it.
