Rejoice, for Metro Redux has been confirmed for release on August 26 in North America. Considering we're almost at July, the wait really isn't much, and we'll soon be revisiting Metro 2033 in full HD glory with extra content -- or Metro: Last Light in Survival Mode.
More than just a bundle, Metro Redux throws in a version of Metro 2033 completely rebuilt using the newer Last Light engine, as well as the Survival and Spartan modes for two different styles of play. For fans who missed the more methodical, survival-driven gameplay of 2033, the two modes would mean you could play Last Light more in the style of 2033, or 2033 in the action-heavy atmosphere of Last Light.
Another improvement to Metro 2033 in Redux is the reduction in load screens, since the new engine allows 4A Games to expand zones and combine levels that were previously split up. DLC for both games and the high-difficulty Ranger Mode will also be included.
Metro Redux will be available as a download and via retailers come August 26. The remastered Metro games can also be purchased separately, but only as downloadable titles.
