Looking at the other DLC for Metro Last Light
Metro Last Light is a good game. It may have snuck under the radar for a lot of gamers earlier this year but its still a must buy. The DLC only adds to the great game. The Gamer's Lounge has played through the rest of the DLC for Metro Last Light and like the rest of the game it is a must play.
Factions Pack was reviewed this summer, and it was entertaining. Three different missions with three distinct characters, you can read more here. The rest of the DLC for Last Light consists of the Tower, Developer’s pack, and Chronicles. The DLC is accessed from the Chapters menu at the starting menu.
The Developer pack has players exploring the cast of characters from the game in a museum style setting. Players can also use any weapon in the shooting range, and pit AI opponents against each other in the arena. The Developer Pack also comes with the solo mission called the Spiders’ Nest and from what I have seen this involves a flamethrower. Let me tell you even with a flamethrower the Spider's Nest is terrifying.
The Tower was the second DLC pack for Last Light. It feature online leaderboards for scoring. Players are tasked in a virtual simulation environment fighting off waves of enemies while moving up the tower. This is a not an easy task as gamers are forced to conserve ammo while getting headshots. I haven’t fared so well and I keep dying after the first few waves. If players are looking for a challenge than this is it.
The third piece of DLC for Metro Last Light is Chronicles. This pack expands on the stories of Anna, Khan, and Pavel. This DLC is around 3 hours long. Pavel has been imprisoned in a Reich Prison. Gamers will have little ammo and will rely on stealth to sneak and kill enemies. This was fun and it reminded me of the missions from Last Light. There are a few exploration opportunities which give you more ammo and weapons. Anna’s mission revolves around the opening sequence with Artyom. You’ll be covering him as he tries to capture the Dark One. Khan’s mission was the longest and creepiest. Khan and Uhlman move through a haunted tunnel on the way to Polis Station. There are several psychological elements the missions will play off, including fear. There is combat and by the end you’ll be glad you survived.
Each of the DLC costs $5 on whatever platform you have the game on. The Season Pass is $15, which I recommend getting. Factions and Chronicles are the most interesting of the DLC and take the longest 2-3 hours apiece. The Tower is fun and presents an interesting challenge and the Developer Pack lets gamers play around with a few things. If you liked Last Light, than pick up the DLC. If you still haven’t picked up Metro Last Light yet, Amazon has it $40 right now, Steam had it for $14 but it goes on sale on a regular basis.
