Metro Last Light To Come With Free Copy Of Its Creating Novel

/ 3 years ago


The Metro Last Light developers, 4A Games and the Metro Last Light publishers, Deep Silver, have just announced that everyone who picks up a copy of the Metro Last Light game via Steam will be given a free copy of the novel that created the Metro series of games. For those who don’t know, the Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light games are actually based on Novels by Dmitry Glukhovsky. To be exact Glukhovsky released two books so far Metro 2033 and Metro 2034 while his upcoming book Metro 2035 will be released soon. The game Metro 2033 was predictably based on the Metro 2033 book while Metro Last Light is said to be based mainly on Metro 2035 and have little to no resemblance to the Metro 2034 storyline although it is similar in themes and style.

Deep Silver and 4A Games are offering a copy of the Metro 2033 novel with the Metro Last Light game orders on Steam – naturally it is going to be a digital copy. It is not known whether copies of Metro Last Light that are acquired in the Nvidia game bundle will give this free book, but since it is based on Steam activations it would seem likely that the Nvidia copy will also bring a free copy of the book. May the 14th is the release date for Metro Last Light and you can pre-order it from Steam, Green Man Gaming, GamersGate, etc.

Being a Gamer myself, I know it is unlikely I’d ever read the book. Although it could be interesting to have a skim through. What are your thoughts on being offered a free copy of the book? Does it make you want to purchase the game more? Or is it just a novelty extra?

    I played through the first game, and after the siggestion of my brother read through the book, i feel the book is almost better than the game in many senses and really provides alot of information that you don’t here in the game, i’d really reccomend the book

  • For some reason i forgot that the game was based on books
    guess i have something to read now

    Nah its not a novelty extra, its a cool idea as the game was based on the books and for big fans of the series who maybe haven’t read the books a lot of extra details regarding the lore and stories of the metro underground will be revealed. Its probably something more games based from books should include 🙂
