Publisher THQ gave fans a treat by releasing a five-minute long live-action trailer titled ‘Enter The Metro’, for upcoming post-apocalyptic horror, Metro: Last Light. The trailer which was expected to land May 24th, gives us a glimpse of Moscow before and after nuclear destruction hits it, along with some in-game graphics near the tail end of the trailer.
The trailer begins with an old man hearing the impending nuclear attack over his retro short-wave radio. He then warns everyone to head to the Metro and seek cover, while emergency sirens go off in the distance and the sight of Russian nuclear missiles flying into the air.
Many people rush to the Metro entrance, with many making it inside, a woman with her child pleads with a Russian officer to be allowed to enter, the officer decides to take the child, but leave the women and the rest outside to face certain death. The sounds of nuclear bombs exploding follow. The trailer then shows us some not to shabby looking in-game visuals, as the game’s protagonist Artyom stands in the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow.
The live-action trailer really shows a grim picture for human life and is surely what developers 4A Games want to portray when the game hits shelves in early 2013. With previous title Metro 2033 being highly under-appreciated many will flock the day of release to pick up this bad boy, me included.
