|From Ukrainian studio A4 Games comes this sequel to Metro 2033.
It is the year 2034. Beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside – and within.
Mutants stalk the catacombs beneath the desolate surface, and hunt amidst the poisoned skies above. But rather than stand united, the station-cities of the Metro are locked in a struggle for the ultimate power, a doomsday device from the military vaults of D6. A civil war is stirring that could wipe humanity from the face of the earth forever. As Artyom, burdened by guilt but driven by hope, you hold the key to our survival – the last light in our darkest hour... Gamers return to the post-apocalyptic subways and catacombs beneath Moscow to scavenge for resources, battle twisted mutants, and contend with the territorial nature of man. Picking up from the first game's "bad" ending, players join survivor Artyom as he searches for a mysterious prisoner who is said to be the key to humanity's survival. His trek takes gamers from the twisted subway ruins, where different factions vie for control of each metro station, to mutant-infested transition zones, and to the violently toxic surface. Supplies are rare and valuable, with gas masks being absolutely essential, most weapons cobbled together from various parts, and ammo scarce enough to actually become the currency of the subways. Light and shadow are also key to the action, with players using a hand-crank flashlight, a lighter, and torches to illuminate dark corridors and keep mutants at bay, while a special wristwatch lets them know how much oxygen they have and if enemies can see them. Gamers carry three customizable guns at a time, and while the action is linear, players can often choose to engage in direct assaults or use stealth to sneak past trouble zones.
