Default Metro Redux released

Yesterday, 17:41
Metro Redux has been released, a complete engine and gameplay overhaul for both Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light. In addition to the technical advancements (outlined here), you also get all Metro Last Light's DLC content worked into the campaign.

But I'm reticent. Why? Because these are completely separate purchases, not upgrades should you have the original versions. On one hand, this kind of double dipping just plain sucks; on the other, I am aware of just how… spoiled I've become with getting others' work given to me for free in the case of GOG updates, etc.

Perhaps w/ a Steam Sale… (again, spoiled)

I thought I read that the Redux versions were going to be 50% off for owners of the original games.

I went ahead and purchased both versions.
And Metro 2033 with the Last Light engine looks great. And it performs better than the previous version.

And man, I forgot how immersive this one can be. And I don't know if it's the game, or the headphones, but I'm getting virtual surround-sound in my PS4 headphones. The headphone can relay surround-sound, but I was under the impression that the game must also be able to use the correct channels to signal the spatial sound information to them to get the effect. Because some PS4 games don't seem to do that. Metro Redux on PC seems to (I also remember WoW also supports this, so it must be Metro that supports it)

No discount for me on Steam. And I have both games in the previous version.

Was $9.99 for Metro Redux or $20 for both really a bad deal?

edit: Owners of the old games got 50% discount on Steam.

Gorath, the discount only applied if you pre-ordered. I have Metro 2033 and it's $25 for the redux (normal price).

I'm still interested in this overhaul, but I'll likely wait until the winter Steam sale.

I know, but they pushed the pre-order discount pretty hard. It was nearly impossible to overlook.

Anyway, this is going to come down in price quickly.

It makes zero sense that you have to pre-order to get the discount. That's bullshit.

I'm now comfortable pirating it.
