Metro: Last Light Live-Action Movie

This trailer is a live-action movie promoting Metro: Last Light, the upcoming first-person shooter. The clip is set in 2013 Moscow, which has apparently gone back in time, and sets the stage for the game with scenes of crowds who obviously did not read the Hitchhiker's Guide from the amount of panic they display.

Really wish this took a more open-ended approach to level design ala STALKER. It feels like such a waste to have this interesting setting but not being able to explore it because the game is so linear and scripted.

One of the reasons I liked Metro so much was that it wasn't so open. With games like Fallout and Skyrim comes a certain blandness, and logically so. When I think back on Metro, it's like thinking back on a very intense and memorable movie. While some games suck and bringing that home, like every MoH and CoD game, Metro was a frealing champion. Can't wait to see what this sequel has in store for us!

Stalker never clicked with me due to too much trial and error, while Metro was too linear. A Russian Fallout was what I was hoping for. Even just letting you revisit the Metro stations and some optional areas to explore would've been nice.

Yeah, that would be very cool to be able to explore....

USA Trailer???
Maybe english subtitles or language would have been nice.

Actual SP in game SP video or link to one would have been nice too.

But if it just another port---no need to purchase.

Subtitles might have been ok, but not language. Metro 2033 was a Russian book and so was based in Russia. It fact, it was one of the things I loved about the game, the Russian accents (even if some where less then stellar).

As for SP, the "20 years later" is in game footage. Not first-person but should help you understand its look

What 3 files do I have to change to fix the FOV? Laugh

Look for the user.cfg file in the following locations:

*** C:\Users\(YOUR COMPUTER-NAME)\AppData\Local\4A Games\Metro 2033

\Steam\userdata\36305548\43110\remote

\Steam\steamapps\common\metro 2033


*** for XP users the first location is:
C:\Documents and Settings\Your Name\Local Settings\Application Data\4A Games\Metro 2033

very looking forward to this game after that long gameplay video that came out several months ago.

I'm all over this game. I loved the first one. It was mostly a corridor shooter but given the scenario, it could not have been done any other way. It was very Half Life like in its story driven nature.
Indeed. Metro 2033 was a great game and I really loved the setting - it's definitely an underrated game. Moving to checkpoints made the game a lot more tense and worked really well. However, as mentioned the quick-time events diminished from the immersion.

It's disappointing that the game has been delayed, especially when it's to add multiplayer - something that isn't really necessary.

The slow pace didn't bother me. In fact, that was one of the strong suits of Metro's design. The clunky console port vibe the game has ruined the experience for me. Having to edit three obscure config files just to change the default narrow-as-fuck FOV to something playable put a bad taste in my mouth right at the start. Then the frequent quicktime events and in-game cutscenes taking control away from the player was an insult to any PC gamer's intelligence.

Yeah, agreed; if I had to pick something I didn't like, it was the fact that there was too many cut scenes that tended to break the continuity a bit. But, i still think (IMO) it was a good story driven game.

I'm glad to see this is still alive and kicking. Metro 2033 didn't gain the popularity it deserved IMO, as I think a lot of people gave up on it too soon, as it does start out a bit slow.
