Metro Redux Coming to PS4 and Xbox One at the end of this Summer
Metro Redux, the remastered bundle of the two games in the Metro series has finally received an official release date. For North American console gamers, you can pick up this game in stores on August 26th. This same package is available to European players on August 29th. Although Linux and SteamOS versions have been confirmed, their release date is currently unknown.
Deep Silver confirmed Metro Redux back in March, and gave it an official announcement in May. This collection has remastered editions of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, originally published in 2010 and 2013, respectively.
The series developer 4A Games wanted Metro Redux to be a new experience as opposed to the same experience players had in the original games over again. 4A Games not only went to improve the aesthetic of these games, but they also wanted to make the gameplay smoother.
Often requested additions like checking your watch and inventory made their way into the new edition, and features from Last Light have been incorporated into Metro 2033.
This new bundle also comes will all the downloadable content available for both of the original games. 4A claims that the console versions of these games should now run at 60 frames per second consistently, at 1080p on the PS4 and 900p on the Xbox One. You can purchase the physical bundle for $49.99, or each title on their own (digitally only) for $24.99.
Some people began complaining on social media platforms about PC players getting “shafted” in a sense. Players who already own the games might look for an excuse to enjoy them again, but not necessarily at full price.
Allegedly, players who already own the games in their Steam library can buy the new bundle at half price, but Deep Silver does not seem to have commented on that as of yet.
