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.
Looking at Metro Last Light, you can see that the overclocked MSI R9 290X 4GB Lightning OC manages to outperform the other setups at all resolutions, and while it doesn't hit that 60 FPS number we want at the highest resolution, it does get the closest with a 55 FPS average. A slight detail drop on our MSI R9 290X 4GB Lightning OC and we'd be able to get that 60 FPS number we're on the hunt for.
