'Metro: Last Light' to receive live-action promo
Even though atmostpheric shooter Metro: Last Light isn't due until early 2013, publisher THQ is preparing to whet appetites with a short film on May 24.
The game will follow Metro 2033, which was based on the gripping Russian novel of the same name, but Last Light is a continuation of 2033's themes rather than an adaptation of its canonical sequel Metro 2034.
A claustrophobic subway system hosted most of the previous game's action, with occasional forays to Moscow's surface, ravaged as it was by post-apocalyptic conditions and mutated animals.
PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 title Metro: Last Light lines up alongside Crysis 3, BioShock Infinite and Tomb Raider as fellow candidates for release during the same window; it's also one of a few titles already announced for the Nintendo Wii U.
