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.

Metro Last Light is one of our more recent benchmarks, and you can see a lot of cards struggle on it. Our overclocked MSI GTX 780 Lightning manages to give some impressive numbers at both 1920 x 1200 and 1680 x 1050.

 

Only at 2560 x 1600 do we see the card fall under the 60 FPS number we're always on the hunt for to provide a solid gaming experience.
