Metro: Last Light and Metro 2033 for PS4 teased in new video

An announcement regarding Metro Redux should be coming soon.

After confirming rumors that it planned to bring its two Metro games to next-gen consoles earlier this year, developer 4A Games today published a short video teasing the PlayStation 4 version of the compilation.

The official Metro franchise Twitter account today sent out the message, "Are you ready? Because we really, nearly are..." This was accompanied by a link to the Vine video below (via NeoGAF), which briefly shows the DualShock 4, the PlayStation 4's dashboard, and at least one of the Metro games, presumably running on the PS4.

A leak earlier this year revealed something called Metro Redux, a bundle including first-person shooters Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light that would be coming to the Xbox One, PS4, and PC. 2033 was released on PC and Xbox 360 in 2010, and was followed in 2013 by Last Light, which was released on PC, 360, and PS3.

Rather than dismiss the leak, as most companies tend to do in such a situation, 4A and publisher Deep Silver admitted in March that Metro Redux is indeed real.

"Is Metro Redux real? Yes. We never made any secret of 4A's desire to bring Metro to the latest generation of console hardware," a statement on the official Metro website read. "But what you saw leaked was taken from an old, internal planning presentation, containing some nuggets of truth but a lot of hypothetical ideas and place holder material."

We have yet to get any indication of what, if anything, will be changed or added in Redux. It's possible it could include the games' DLC, which added weapons, missions, and more. Both games were received positively--2033 earned a 7.5 in GameSpot's review, while Last Light earned a 9.0. However, Last Light has been criticized for the Ranger difficulty mode--described as "the way it was meant to be played"--being locked away as DLC, a decision 4A has blamed on former publisher THQ.

When the existence of Redux was confirmed, we were told an announcement regarding the game would be made prior to E3. With the event kicking off in less than three weeks, we should be learning more soon.

Have you played the Metro games before? Is an Xbox One or PS4 re-release something that interests you? Let us know in the comments below.

I had been intending to get Last Light for my PS3 for some time now, but this announcement means I'll probably hold off that wee bit longer and get the compilation for the 4.

I got the first Metro well over a year ago. I think it was during the THQ Humble Bundle right before they went under.


Metro 2033 maxed out looks amazing even now. I somehow doubt the PS4 will be able to handle it as well.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >>Not even close to max at 1080p/60fps. Metro 2033 is a very GPU intensive game that needs << LINK REMOVED >>. The PS4 has a GPU in the middle of 7850/7870 class. If they would create it for 1080p, it will be at 30fps.

1080p60fps? Not going to happen, unless they use medium settings...

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> The game will not be optimized at ultra settings. As Coseniath said the GPU in the PS4 isn't capable of it. Med / high setting at 1080p 60fps if you're lucky.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >>It all depends how well the game will be optimised. 1080p@60fps is achievable, but has to be worked hard for.


That being said, I'm finding 30fps much easier on consoles than on PC. Maybe because controller is slower than mouse, so lower fps is less penalty as well.

Have not played either game but they both have been on my list of games to play... Just not enough time to finally clear up the gaming backlog...


I would get them for the PS4 if nothing else is taking my full time gaming...

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> yeah you right, console players should experience this brilliance on their machines, I am just saying that some people with consoles and PCs might dish out 40 quid on console version when they have fully capable PC. metro 2033 could run on most machines,

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >>It is not that simple.

I have (and had) decent gaming PC but still prefered some games on PS3, even if they are inferior. Playing with controller, in front of TV, from favourite recliner is just more relaxing than playing at the desk, in front of monitor.

I ended up playing much more BF3 on PS3 than on PC, for example. Although I played both versions (had friends both on PS3 and PC).

That's a bold move bringing those two beasts to consoles seeing it brings even high end PCs to their knees.

<< LINK REMOVED >> metro last light dev Oles Shishkovstov had this to say "You just cannot compare consoles to PC directly. Consoles could do at least 2x what a comparable PC can due to the fixed platform and low-level access to hardware."

Well they were released on last gen consoles already. They will just be upscaled ports of the 360 and PS3 versions.

I just played and beat Last Light this past weekend. GREAT game! The graphics and atmosphere are amazing. I love the lighting and over all feel of this game. I will tell you if you have not played Last Light yet (especially on PC) do yourself a favor and buy it now!

Goes without saying Metro 2033 if you care about the plot.

Gameplay and graphically speaking MLL is way better, but I would advise playing Metro 2033 just for the story.

At least they're working on a new Metro, it's commendable that they're still capable of working despite the ongoing crisis over there.
