The once-great Russian city of Moscow has been destroyed, and its inhabitants now reside below the surface in the tunnels of the Metro. The year is 2034, and those left are under constant threat from the outside — and within the tubes they now call home. Deadly mutants roam the catacombs beneath the surface, and hunt amidst the poisoned skies above. Instead of taking up arms against this ever-present mutant threat, the station-cities of the underworld remain locked in a struggle for control of a powerful and dangerous doomsday device that lies within the military vaults. With this civil war brewing, it's only a matter of time before mankind is destroyed once and for all. Only one person holds the key to our survival — in our darkest hour, you are the Last Light.
It's time to go beneath the surface to save humanity from complete annihilation in Metro: Last Light. Burdened by guilt and driven by hope, you take on the role of Artyom — mankind's last hope for survival. In this sequel to 2010's critically acclaimed Metro 2033, you embark on a gripping storyline that leads you into the dark and terrifying ruins of Moscow's decimated Metro system.
