The first of four planned add-ons for Metro: Last Light drops on Tuesday, July 16 for Xbox Live, Steam, and PlayStation Network in North America. European PSN and everywhere else will get the Faction Pack ($4.99 / £3.99) a day later. This DLC is centered around three single-player missions, each of which puts you in the shoes of different character.
Should you want more out of Last Light, expect to play as a Redline sniper infiltrating a Reich Outpost, a Reich "Heavy," and a Polis Ranger in training. The remaining three DLC packs have also been detailed by 4A Games and Deep Silver. Here are the official summaries:
The Tower Pack presents a unique experience for seasoned Metro gunslingers -- a challenge based game mode, with online Leaderboard support, as players fight their way up the combat simulator known as The Tower.
The Developer Pack boasts a fully stocked Shooting Gallery, the AI Arena and Metro Museum… And a bonus solo mission -- The Spiders' Nest -- offers some new tools for dealing with an infestation of the skittering Spider mutants.
The Chronicles Pack will feature original single player missions that cast the player as three of the game's standout characters -- Pavel, Khan and Anna -- and explore their side-stories away from Artyom's adventure.
All together, these four pieces of content are $14.99 / £11.99 when acquired through the game's Season Pass. I like that it took this long for the post-release rollout to happen. We're actually ready and willing to play more Last Light, in most cases.
