THQ have revealed the next game in the Metro franchise, titled Metro: Last Light.
The game, a sequel to last years Metro 2033, takes place in the haunting, desolate ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow and pitches the player into the midst of a desperate civil war for control over a doomsday device that threatens to destroy humanity.
"We believe that Metro 2033 was a flawed masterpiece," said Danny Bilson, EVP Core Games, THQ. "It was a beautiful, original game that didn't get the marketing support it needed. We won't make that mistake with Metro: Last Light. This game improves on the original in every way - it will have more polish, deeper and more sophisticated gameplay, and satisfyingly visceral combat, without losing what our fans loved about the original. Metro: Last Light is another artful piece of game development from an Eastern European studio that will thrill and terrify anyone looking for a more cerebral experience than your typical first person shooter."
Metro: Last Light will arrive sometime in 2012 on the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
