Back in May, THQ told us that a downloadable content pack for Metro 2033 would be available "soon." By "soon," it meant August, apparently -- the DLC in question, "The Ranger Pack," is out tomorrow on Xbox LIVE Marketplace and Steam.
The pack will add a new "Ranger Mode" to the game, which reduces the ammunition available to the player while increasing damage and the number of enemies encounter. Also, say goodbye to the HUD, as it's stripped away for this more "realistic" mode. (You know, as "realistic" as a game where you fight creatures in tunnels can get.)
You'll also get new Achievements, along with two new weapons -- the Heavy Automatic Shotgun and the Volt Driver.
Good news for PC gamers -- the update is free. Xbox 360 folks will have to pony up 240 MS Points.
