Return To Moscow On August 26 With Metro Redux

Metro Last Light 3

Deep Silver has announced that Metro Redux, the remastered bundle of the two previously released titles in the Metro franchise, will hit store shelves on August 26 in North America for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. The bundle will subsequently launch on August 29 in Europe.

Revealed back in March, Metro Redux brings together remastered versions of 2010’s Metro 2033 and 2013’s Metro: Last Light. Series developer 4A Games has returned to work on the project in order to ensure that it is more than just a fresh coat of paint slapped onto some old projects.

Besides the graphical uptick that comes with the remastering, Metro Redux will also feature a variety of tweaks and updates that will make the title play better than before. Improvements introduced in Metro: Last Light will now appear in Metro 2033, as well as the requested ability to be able to check your inventory and watch. In addition, 4A Games is hoping to have both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the collection run at 60 frames per second.

As one of the more under-appreciated franchises to come out of the last-generation of consoles, I think 4A Games and Deep Silver have chosen the perfect release date for Metro Redux. While there are some big titles hitting in August (namely Madden NFL 15 and Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition), the rest of the month is basically a ghost town and a summer release will allow the game to avoid all the heavy hitters that are scheduled for release in the fall.

Metro Redux will be available for purchase in both physical and digital formats for $49.99 when it launches on August 26. Gamers new to the franchise can also purchase each title in the franchise separately for $24.99 on the digital platform of their choosing.
