Deep Silver today announced that 4A Games will be supporting the critically acclaimed Metro: Last Light with a series of original single player content packs throughout the summer which can be purchased at a discount with the Season Pass, now available on Steam, Xbox LIVE Marketplace and the PlayStation Network.

The Season Pass also grants an additional weapon, the deadly Abzats, a semi-automatic shotgun rifle with a devastating secondary fire mode that unleashes six shells in one blast.

“Artyom’s story may have been concluded in Metro: Last Light, but there are other characters with stories to tell, some familiar locations that fans of the Metro series wanted to revisit, and some new challenges that 4A wanted to explore,” said Andrew Prokhorov, Creative Director at 4A Games. “Since completing the game we have been working on these new stories and hope to release them throughout the summer.”

In more detail the ‘Faction Pack’ and the ‘Chronicles Pack’ will include new, original single player gameplay that expands on the Metro: Last Light universe and story, the ‘Tower Pack’ will present a unique solo challenge to Metro veterans, and the ‘Developer Pack’ will give creative players some interesting tools with which to explore the world of Metro.

The first chapter will be the ‘Faction Pack’ , set for release in June 2013.
