'Metro: Last Light' outperforming predecessor

By Mark Langshaw

Metro: Last Light has apparently sold more units in one week than its predecessor Metro 2033 managed in three months.

Publisher Deep Silver has not released specific sales figures for the shooter sequel, but was quick to point out that its worldwide sales are far surpassing the original.

Although Metro: Last Light failed to match its forebear's opening-week sales in the UK, Deep Silver noted that it has shifted more units in the US than Metro 2033 has in its three-year lifespan.

The PC version is said to have been particularly successful, tripling Metro 2033's worldwide sales during its first week on the market.

Metro: Last Light debuted at the top of the all-formats software charts in numerous European territories, including the UK, when it was released last month.

The game is available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. (Industry, Metro: Last Light, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I am not going to congratulate a game where they decided to sell difficulty levels as DLC.

Give credit where it's due. Blame the publishers. The game is quite awesome.

And don't buy Ranger mode.

Not sure about your copy of metro but my copy came with ranger mode dlc included.

Not "levels" but "level", as in one, as in the hardest one that few people are going to play anyway.

Nobody gives a crap when games offer pre-order items like weapons. Things that can and will be used by everyone. But a game mode targeted to a specific group of players that adds nothing in terms of actual content, well that's where we have to draw the line.

I'm sure it's release on the ps3 as well has a lot to do with it ;-)

Great news for them. Loved Metro Last Light :)

Glad to hear it and I hope it continues. Hopefully with these improved sales, an improved workspace can be attained. Even if they don't want any sympathy, I think they accomplished a lot in an environment not many devs have to deal with.

and the reason for that is because people picked the first game up used and liked it so opted to by the sequel new....doh Microsoft.

Doesnt make sense if UK had it in top charts how could it not sell more specially as metro 2033 wasn't on PS3.

Good on 4A, Last Light is a fantastic game and a more than worthy sequel.

They deserved it for making such a good game, here's to more Metro.

I'm glad to hear! More shooters with such depth and passion behind them need to perform better.
