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.

For the first time we see a card that breaks through the 60 FPS barrier.

 

Looking above, you can see at 1680 x 1060 that the Sapphire R9 280X 3GB TOXIC offers a strong 69 FPS. Moving to 1920 x 1200, while we fall short of that 60 FPS number, the 59 FPS number we get is strong and playable.
