Metro Last Light dated at last

Deep Silver has today announced the release date for Metro: Last Light.

The FPS is under development at 4AGames, although many feared for its future when THQ went into administration. Thankfully Deep Silver snapped the franchise up, allowing the developer to finish its work on the title.

So when will it arrive? That we can answer. You'll be able to get hold of the game in the UK and Europe on May 14 on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC while the US release is set for May 14.

"The new release date is the ideal way to strike the balance between bringing the best out of Metro: Last Light and not keep the fans waiting longer than necessary," Koch Media owner Dr Klemens Kundratitz stated.

"We won't leave that time unexploited and will work closely together with 4A Games to make the game even better. It will receive all the attention it deserves."

Deep Silver's international commercial director Menno van der Bil added: "Since it has been made public that we took over the Metro franchise, the fans keep asking for a release date. Now we can finally announce when they will be able to get their hands on the game. We would like to thank all of the Metro fans for their patience. And we can assure them that we have a lot more coming their way with the franchise."

The original Metro sneaked under the radar but if given a chance, It really is an excellent, Thrilling & atmospheric game. Last Light has been marketed far better, Can only hope they stay true to the roots for 2033.

Nice. Was worried it'd be later in the year for this after the THQ implosion but May should do nicely now that Last of Us is in June.

Awesome news! Metro 2033 was an amazingly atmospheric game which totally took my by surprise and was an incredibly welcome change from the ridiculously over-the-top shenanigans of all the Call of Dutys and Battlefields out there. Very excited for the sequel :)

At long last! This should be a good game and worth a whirl.

Was really looking forward to the South Park game. Want it to be sooner than later really. My buying of 360 games is going to severely slow down when we get close to the end of the year.

Didn't Ubisoft take the South Park game? I think they'll give it a fair release date when its done, so I wouldn't worry. BUT METRO 2033 LIVES! YAY!

I never have either but seen videos of this older one you mention Rachael. It looks awesome! How about DLC or an on disc version with this game like Medal of Honour was!

The original metro was quite a bland looking game but this looks alot brighter and will be more enjoyable to play having a more varied colour palette than previous version. I would still pick up the original Metro for under a fiver from Shopto though it is well worth that...

Sometimes a brighter more varied colour palette is not better. The best edgey horror games (I am looking at you Dead Space) are dark and grim! Who said the 3rd Dead Space isn't scary! It's jumpy with two regenerators and is full of exciting puzzles

All I mean is that looking at a bland not very good looking game can be a major put off for people even when it does add to the ambience of a good horror game. You can still have both with still a great game in the making. You make it sound like the two can't go hand in hand when they can, just that I would like a bit of both...

Resident Evil 5 did try it... And although there was tension built up especially in the town with the Executioner geezer running about, I didn't feel genuinely petrified as I did playing through Dead Space 1 for example. Silent Hill The Room was probably the scariest brightest game ever so yes if done well they can be scary but it really needs a great premise. Even in movies the horror movies are dark and grim. Would Pyscho be Pyscho at 11am?
