Faction Pack delay
Hey everyone,

The Faction Pack, planned for release this June as the first piece of single-player DLC, has suffered a slight delay and we're now aiming for a mid-July release on all platforms.

I know those of you who have bought the Season Pass have been eagerly awaiting the first Pack, and I'm really sorry to have to make you wait longer than expected. There were some challenges along the way and we want to make the Faction Pack a solid and unique single-player addition to Metro: Last Light's campaign. I hope you can be patient for a little longer, while we continue to work on making sure it will be worth your while.

The other Packs will be released over the 60 days following the release of the Faction Pack.

As soon as we have a final release date set in stone, we'll share it with you all. There will also be some more screenshots and details in the time to come. Unfortunately, I don't have more info to give you right now.

Having said that, the DLC achievements have been added to Steam and they might give you some ideas of what to expect: http://steamcommunity.com/stats/MetroLastLight/achievements


Last but not least, Metro 2033 fans might appreciate this little tidbit from the Faction Pack:

That moment when you first entered the chapter with <spoiler>

Nevermind, I guess it's better than being rushed.

NNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Oh well. Better to wait longer for a quality release than have a poorly finished rushed release I guess. But then the game is still glitchy as all hell for a huge number of people, so perhaps they should be working on that first anyway?

Please protect me, as an impatient person, from myself and release it when its ready and not cause I am begging for it. Cause it will never be soon enough. With that said...

Whos fault is this? Why do we have to wait? I want it now.. Gimme! When is metro 2035's release date? Whats taking so long?

Бедные иностранцы, не могут уже дождаться дополнения. у нас и вселенная метро, и всякие ненужные игры вконтакте и куча чего еще с миром Метро 2033, а им всего 2 игры да книга

be patient!

Somehow, when the RPK got released, I thought there would be a delay in releasing the first DLCs. A few weeks more waiting on a quality product won't matter to most of us. I really like the idea that they're going to try and have all DLCs released within 60 days of the first DLC release. :)

Me too.. Many DLCs come way to late after release.

So if they are releasing the 4 packs within 4 months of the games release, that tells me that they might not have a lot of new playable content each, right?
I did think this with the price being so low. When all other season pass packs for games are around £15-20 for 3 releases, this being just £12 for 4 DLC releases made me think they might be a bit small.
Now I know this I am almost certain they will be small.
The tower pack and the developer pack will have no new content I am sure, and just give a different bunch of rulesets as options for players to raise difficulty/challenge, perhaps add extra enemy or remove ammo/filters from the base game.
So all we are really getting is 2 new content packs.
Not that I am too bothered, just saying I would have preferred more new content, even if the price had been a bit higher.

Having said that, I hope that after this they will be done with metro forever, and we can then see what else 4A can do bringing us a brand new game. To see what else they are capable of. As much as I love metro (they are my 2 fave games of all time, no joke), I don't want to see this awesomely talented team stuck being a one trick pony, stuck to metro forever until it turns into a yearly or two-yearly joke

Thanks for the heads up on the delay
as a small consolation prize...how about giving that $1 RPK away for free to Seasons Pass Purchasers who were relying on a June Release date for the First DLC?
I know that aint gonna happen but i just thought id ask anyway
