Pre-order on Steam and get... No HUD?

#1 Edited by Bollard (5865 posts) -

So you can pre-order this on Steam now (and apparently if you own Metro 2033 you get 10% off - but everyone owns Metro 2033 because, well, they gave it out for free). Sadly it is £35 anyway, so that 10% off means the game is still above average price. Oh well, at least the damn thing is coming out still!

More info on the Pre-order Special Edition:

  • Ranger Mode - Experience complete immersion. No HUD. Less bullets. Brutal Combat. Hardcore.
  • Modified Russian Rifle - A compact but deadly Russian assault rifle, perfect for claustrophobic combat.
  • Extra Military Grade Bullets - Coveted for their ability to kill, these bullets are also the currency of the Metro. Will you use them in battle or purchase precious resources? The choice is yours.
  • Metro Last Light Digital Comic - Created by Dmitry Glukhovsky

Isn't it weird they're including Ranger Mode as a preorder bonus? Cause, like, it seemed like a pretty cool thing in the first game (although I never got round to trying it myself).

It looks like THQ's DLC ways have transferred over to Deep Silver. Lovely.

After the pre order bonus is gone... it'll most definitely go up as DLC afterwards.

@chavtheworld: Ranger mode was DLC in metro 2033. At least you get it for pre-ordering now instead of having to fucking pay for it....

@vinny_says: Wasn't that DLC free?... I remember it being free.

@vinny_says: If I'm not mistaken, Ranger mode in the original Metro was free on PC's.

It's still DLC. Just free if you pre-order. It's some of the most bullshit DLC I've seen. Hard mode for $5? Piss off.

Koch said that they went with Ranger Mode as a pre-order bonus because at this point you can't go around pre-orders and they didn't want to include story or bonus missions as a bonus nor go the "timed exclusive" route and the mode is, in their opinion, something for the more hardcore fans anyway who will possibly pre-order anyway.

Holy fuck that doesn't look right at all!

That is pretty gross. On the other hand I think it's cool that instead of getting a copy of metro 2033 if you already have it you get a discount on last light

Did Paul Walker just step into the uncanny valley?

Sir, you wrong me. Ranger mode in 2033 was the only way to play the game, in my opinion. It really held the immersion together and the clever subtle HUD the game uses - most notably the watch - make the experience as realistic as possible.

You want that again? Better pay $5 for it, sucker. That's what you get for buying the game. We punish our customers because we had to add pre-order incentives. Instead of adding in a few levels we took a whole mode out of the game haha money pls

I kinda wish they made Ranger mode a online pass thing instead. Will still give this game a shot tomorrow though.
