Triumphing over adversity amid fairly horrid working conditions, 4A Games' Metro: Last Light has managed to outperform its predecessor Metro 2033, by quite some margin. In the US alone, Metro: Last Light managed to sell through more boxed copies in its first week than Metro 2033 achieved in its lifetime to date.
Across all formats, Metro: Last Light has sold more during its first week worldwide than Metro 2033 did in three months, enjoying a number 1 spot in the charts upon its debut. The game was also widely well-received by critics.
“4A Games are honoured by the reception our latest project has received,” said 4A Games Creative Director Andrew Prokhorov, “We are a small but dedicated team who are lucky to have been given the creative freedom and support to make the kind of experience we dream, as gamers, of playing.
"Our work on Metro: Last Light continues with new single player DLC, and we look forward to revealing future projects from the team. We want to thank all the Metro fans for support we have received."
Metro: Last Light's Season Pass is available now for 1200 MSP, and will include the 'Faction Pack', 'Chronicles Pack', 'Tower Pack' and 'Developer Pack'.
