|Metro: Last Light Cover|
|A young Artyom being saved by a Dark One from mutants|
At the end of Metro 2033, you approach your long awaited D-6; a pre-apocalyptic shelter that contains the last weapons of mass destruction in Russia: enough missiles to level the country. After fighting his way through the Metro up to the surface through Soviets, bandits, and mutants alike Artyom approaches D-6, however just before he reaches the facility he is contacted by the Dark Ones through hallucinations of a sort. Artyom enters the facility, uses the missiles to target the Dark Ones home, essentially destroying the Dark Ones. This brings us to the events of Metro: Last Light, it has been one year since the destruction of the Dark Ones and the Order now inhabits D-6, which turns out has enough supplies to supply them all for decades. The situation between the factions of the Metro has grown worse, and the discovery of D-6 has not helped. Even though the Order tried to keep D-6 a secret, word of the safe haven quickly got out, and rumors have spread that the other factions plan to take D-6 from the Rangers (The Order). Artyom is awakened with urgent news from Coronal Miller, the leader of the Rangers, that a Dark One has been spotted near their old home. You are instructed to gear up and head out to find this Dark One. Oh, also, turns out when the Dark Ones flooded Artyom's mind with hallucinations, they were trying to establish with humanity that they only wanted peace. So, pardon my language, but Artyom f*cked up pretty bad on that matter. Now that we have the set the scene for the world we're about to step into, I will talk about some of the new aspects the game has to offer. Probably the biggest change in the game is the improved stealth system, allowing you to stray from the standard path a FPS into a darker and more entertaining perspective. Being a gamer as I am, I enjoy the stealth aspect of Metro: Last Light.
