Metro: Last Light is a story-driven first-person shooter set in the post-apocalyptic wasteland of Moscow’s metro system, featuring a mix of survival horror, stealth, and combat in a fight for humanity’s survival.


Metro: Last Light (2013) emerges as a beacon of narrative-driven gameplay in the post-apocalyptic genre, inviting players into the dark, mutant-infested tunnels of the Moscow Metro. As a sequel to Metro 2033, Last Light continues the story of Artyom and his quest to save what remains of humanity.


Set in the year 2034, beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside – and within. Mutants stalk the catacombs beneath the desolate surface, and hunt amidst the poisoned skies above. But rather than stand united, the station-cities of the Metro are locked in a struggle for the ultimate power, a doomsday device from the military vaults of D6. A civil war is stirring that could wipe humanity from the face of the earth forever. Artyom, burdened by guilt but driven by hope, holds the key to our survival – the last light in our darkest hour.


Artyom, the protagonist, is a young man tormented by guilt and driven by hope, on a quest that can alter the fate of humanity. Alongside him, characters such as Anna, the Spartan Order’s top sniper and Artyom’s love interest, and Khan, a mysterious wanderer with knowledge of the Metro’s secrets, play pivotal roles.


Combining thrilling first-person shooter mechanics with stealth and survival horror elements, Metro: Last Light offers a richly atmospheric experience. Players navigate the treacherous Metro tunnels and the surface ruins of Moscow, facing both human and mutant adversaries. Ammunition is scarce, doubling as currency, making resource management crucial to survival.


Metro: Last Light stands as a testament to the power of narrative in video games, weaving a compelling post-apocalyptic tale that challenges players’ morals and survival instincts.
