Metro: Last Light is set to get its second piece of downloadable content next week in the form of the Tower Pack, which adds a challenge-based “combat simulator” to the game.
The DLC adds a virtual reality tower to the game filled with enemies. Players must shoot their way up the tower floor by floor using all of the game’s various weapons. There is an online leaderboard which tracks how high players have got.
“Players have to fight their way up through a heavily guarded tower, a virtual combat simulator. Each level is increasingly difficult – packed with hordes of enemies, mutants and other deadly threats. The best players in this combat simulator will need to master Metro’s unique, hand-made weaponry and deep combat mechanics in order to reach the top of the global leaderboards,” developer 4A Games explains.
The Tower Pack is set to launch September 3 for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, priced at $4.99. The DLC is free for owners of the Metro: Last Light Season Pass.
