The first of the single player game add-ons, Faction Pack, is set for release in June, with the other to follow later this summer.

  • The 'Faction Pack' and the 'Chronicles Pack' will include new, original single player gameplay that expands on the Metro: Last Light universe and story
  • The 'Tower Pack' will present a unique solo challenge to Metro veterans
  • Meanwhile, the 'Developer Pack' will give creative players some interesting tools with which to explore the world of Metro

The Metro: Last Light season pass is available on Xbox 360, PS3 and Steam for 1200 MSP or $14.99 / £11.99 / €14.99. It also grants players access to an additional weapon, the Abzats, "a semi-automatic shotgun rifle with a devastating secondary fire mode that unleashes six shells in one blast". PlayStation Plus subscribers will receive a 25 per cent discount on the season pass between May 21 and June 4 in the US and May 22 and June 5 everywhere else.

4A Games creative director Andrew Prokhorov said: "Artyom's story may have been concluded in Metro: Last Light, but there are other characters with stories to tell, some familiar locations that fans of the Metro series wanted to revisit, and some new challenges that 4A wanted to explore. Since completing the game we have been working on these new stories and hope to release them throughout the summer."

On Monday, Metro Last Light debuted at No.1 on the UK all formats all prices chart for the week ended May 18.

In our Metro: Last Light review we said 4A's sequel is "gruelling, but worth the effort" and "a refreshing change from more traditional first-person shooters".
