Deep Silver today announced that Metro Redux, the upcoming bundle that includes remastered versions of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on August 26. The game comes to Europe three days later on August 29.
The $50 Metro Redux also contains all previously released DLC for both games, as well the uber-difficult Ranger Mode. The remastered versions of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light will also be sold separately across console and PC as downloads for $25 each. If you already own Metro 2033 or Metro: Last Light on Steam, you can get the remastered versions for 50 percent off.
The new versions of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light include "never-seen-before" content and new gameplay features, as well as "outstanding graphical fidelity." The resolution is unknown, but both games will run at 60fps.
When the bundle was originally announced last month, Deep Silver explained that gameplay has been improved "radically," and now includes "advanced enemy AI, improved combat and stealth mechanics, superior weapon handling, and more responsive, intuitive controls." Visuals have also been boosted, now featuring "advanced lighting, dynamic weather, more detailed characters with improved animation, more dynamic destruction, and improved smoke, fire, and particle effects."
Dedicated Linux and SteamOS versions of Metro Redux are also in the works and are scheduled to launch sometime in 2014. We got to see Metro Redux at E3, and you can watch our interview with Deep Silver about the game in the video above.
