DLC and season pass is coming to Metro: Last Light

by: Nathaniel -
I haven't played Metro: Last Light yet.  I wasn't a big fan of the first game's stealth and swarming melee enemies.  But many of you have no doubt already saved Moscow from a Nazi-monster invasion (That's what happens, right?).  If you're one of those people, and think your Metro: Last Light experience is over then you obviously need to swap out the air filter in your gas mask because the fumes are getting to you.  Metro: Last Light is getting a series of single-player dlc and a season pass so you can get it all at a modest discount.  It also grants players a new semi-automatic shotgun called the Abzats whose secondary fire mode fires six shells at once. 

The Faction Pack and Chronicles Pack expand the Metro: Last Light story.  The Tower Pack adds solo challenges.  Finally, the Developer Pack gives players new tools to explore post-apocalyptic Moscow.

The season pass, available right now for download from Xbox Live, the PSN, and Steam, costs $14.99/1200 MSP.  The first dlc pack will be out in June.
