Metro: Last Light takes place one year after the events of Metro 2033, proceeding from the ending where Artyom chose to call down the missile strike on the Dark Ones. The Rangers have since occupied the D6 military facility, with Artyom having become an official member of the group. Khan, the nomad mystic, arrives at D6 to inform Artyom and the Rangers that a single Dark One survived the missile strike. Khan believes the Dark One is the key to humanity's future, and wants to make peace with it, while Ranger leader Colonel Miller wants to kill the creature due to its potential threat. Miller sends Artyom to the surface with a mission to kill the Dark One; he is accompanied by Anna, Miller's sarcastic daughter and the Rangers' best sniper.
Like Fire Strike, our pool of video cards is quite limited at the moment when it comes to Metro Last Light.
You can see a good boost over the MSI GTX 770 2GB Twin Frozr Gaming card, though, with some more breathing room at 1680 x 1050. 1920 x 1200 also sees a nice bump, but you can see we still fall just a few FPS shy of the 60 FPS number we want for smooth gameplay.
