Ahead of next week's E3 trade show, THQ have lifted the veil on Metro: Last Light, a sequel to last year's Metro 2033 (Ausgamers 8.8), the grim first person shooter set in a post-apocalyptic Russia, developed by Ukraine-based studio 4a-games.
Metro: Last Light will immerse the player in the haunting, desolate ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, one of the most richly detailed and beautifully realised gaming worlds of modern times. Developer 4A Games will deliver a terrifying, atmospheric single-player adventure that fuses thrilling combat with exploration and survival horror to create a unique, memorable experience.

“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.”
A teaser trailer -- embedded below (or here in HD) -- doesn't offer a whole lot, but the first set of screenshots are looking quite impressive.

Metro: Last Light is due in 2012 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and we expect to see more of the game next week at E3.

I liked that trailer, keen to see how this game turns out, east euro games seem to surprise a lot.

interesting, because i found it quite boring. just seemed too easy and i got through it rather quickly. didn't seem to have enough of a constant challenge. it certainly had me intrigued enough in it's advertising to entice me to buy it, but yeah, left rather disappointed.

maybe i was missing something?

that trailer is horrible

Too easy & boring? Sorry to hear that! I loved the story & ambience - action wise, damn if it didn't get worrying when your been chased by yeti like creatures and you've run out of ammo =)

I'm happy the original game had rest periods (story) between the action - a lot of the action I found more intense than most fps games with a great sense of desperation.. maybe it was actually easy? But it certainly didn't feel that way.

Looking forward to Last Light definitely!

It's a teaser Eski. What, did you want the whole game given to you on a plate?

I loved the first also, the story was interesting and the gameplay was smooth.

The story for this is once again based on the novels by the same russian writer. Should be sweet.

Same here. I thought it was slow at times but some good memories - choosing which weapons to carry, conserving ammo, sneaking thru patrols, throwing knives and the time i raged when i first lost all my gold to that hooker chick and her big ass BF at the start of the game. Yes there were some flaws to the game and the gas mask was f*****g annoying but i played thru the Hunter or whatever-it-was-called advanced mode and thought it was awesome. Actually finished the game which is pretty rare for me.
