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.

At the lowest resolution, you can see the VisionTek R9 280X 3GB manages to just scrape past that 60 FPS average with 63 FPS. Above that resolution, you can see we don't have any luck. Also, being one of our newer games, we don't have results for the HD 7970 GHz Edition 3GB or GTX 770 2GB here.
