New update: AMD fixes and FOV
A patch has been released on Steam to fix issues with AMD hardware, and improve performance for these cards. It's live now, but might take a few minutes to reach everyone. Restart your client or verify local files if it doesn't download automatically.

It also fixes a shadow visual corruption bug on AMD 7xxx cards, and fixes an issue with the game starting only in 3:1 resolution on some TVs.

In addition, you can now customize the FOV this way:

After starting the game up, the user.cfg will be updated with the r_base_fov attribute. You can find this in %LOCALAPPDATA%\4A Games\Metro LL\. Tweak it at your leisure!

I asked this in another thread, but I may as well ask here too: does this include the FOV config fix?

Will the FOV break the character models as previously stated by Professor Pew?

It might if you crank it up to a very high FOV. The statement of 4A Games on FOV still holds true, so use it at your own risk. But the option to tweak it is there now! :)

The patch has fixed all performance and shadow issues for me with my Radeon 7950.

Now is a good time to buy the game, it is simply an excellent game now that the most glaring technical faults are dealt with..
