Metro: Last Light Faction Pack DLC Dated For Next Week With Screens
Written Wednesday, July 10, 2013 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Bringing three new single-player missions to Metro: Last Light, Deep Silver has slapped a release date on the first dose of Season Pass content, the Factions Pack DLC, in which you'll return to some classic locations from Metro 2033.
Each of the three Faction Pack missions will cast you as a different specialist from the warring factions with different weapons and three distinct gameplay challenges. The Faction Pack DLC also promises the return of a terrifying and fearsome mutant foe.
In terms of the faction specialists you'll play as during the DLC, there's the Special Detachment Sniper of the Redline, who must infiltrate a heavily guarded Reich outpost at night while a deadly radioactive storm rages; then there's the Reich 'Heavy' who you'll play as defending the frontline, using some of the game's most devastating weaponry.
And finally, there's the Polis Ranger in training, who must pick his way through a vast Library complex in a search for artifacts and relics. You'll trade salvage for ammo, filters and hazard suits, enabling you to explore deeper into the Library, leaving lit torches to illuminate a trail back to base before your oxygen supply expires.
You'll be able to grab the Faction Pack DLC for Metro: Last Light on July 16th for 400 Microsoft Points, or get it as part of the Season Pass (with an extra weapon, the Abzats), available to download for 1200 MSP. The Factions Pack is the first of four planned Season Pass DLC packs for Metro: Last Light. Check out the first three screens from the upcoming DLC below.
