Finally! After written previews and teasers, we're finally being treated to a video showing 4A Games' upcoming Metro 2033 sequel, Metro: Last Light. You know what they say—a video is worth... well, at least several thousand words.
As in the Thief and Splinter Cell series, you can neutralize light sources to sneak through certain areas undetected, and quietly stabbing enemies in the back is clearly on the menu. When the bad guys finally spot you, though, you're definitely not defenseless. Serious Sam would be proud. Oh, and for what it's worth, the game seems to be running with a pretty smooth frame rate despite being in "pre-alpha" form.
Last we heard, THQ was giving the 4A Games team more resources to make Metro: Last Light surpass its predecessor. A preview piece by Joystiq suggests the upcoming title will have tighter, more polished gameplay and plenty of PC-exclusive eye candy. (Thanks to Rock, Paper, Shotgun for the link.)
