Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light are both to receive remasterings later this year. 4A Games announced in a press release today, the developer revealed that the two games will release on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

The news follows recent speculation about a number of remakes, including The Last of Us and Halo 2.

The Metro games are set in a post-apocalyptic Russia where the only survivors of a Nuclear war were those present in the underground system during the attack. The story was based on the novel of the same name by Dimitry Glukholsky.

Rather than simply porting the two games into a higher resolution game publisher Deep Silver spoke about how the studio is adding extra detail and features to both games. Lighting has seen a great improvement along with the standard increase in the quality of visuals.

However it is the original game that has been most altered. One of the main changes is addition of day and night cycles to Metro 2033 while certain levels have also been expanded to include brand new content. It has also been built in the engine used for Last Light, so sees many of the features from the sequel make an appearance as well as completely reworked cinematics.

As has become standard with games that have released across both platforms, the PlayStation 4 version will run at 1080p compared to 900p on the Xbox One. Deep Silver promised that both versions will run at a stable 60 frames per second.

Both titles will be available this summer and will retail for $24.99 each or you can buy them in a special bundle, named Metro: Redux, for $49.99. They will launch on both next generation consoles and PC first before seeing releases on Mac, Linux and SteamOS later in the year.
