First details on the Ranger Pack revealed…
After much speculation, we can finally confirm the contents of the upcoming DLC for Metro 2033.
The Ranger Pack adds new weapons, new achievements and the deadly ‘Ranger Mode’ game rules. In standard Ranger Mode, ammo is dramatically reduced and all weapons cause more damage. Your foes are deadlier than ever – but so are you! ‘Ranger Hardcore’ adds an additional challenge as the HUD is totally removed, creating the most immersive Metro 2033 experience yet.
Rise to the challenge with two new weapons – the Heavy Automatic Shotgun, and the Volt Driver, Miller’s signature gun. New achievements and 250 gamerscore points are up for grabs.
So, to summarize; Less ammo. More weapons that dispense higher damage. No HUD. 250 gamerscore points. No pricing or release date was announced.
I really hope there’s more to this that it seems on the surface. I’m a sucker for this game so I’m be there on release day, grabbing the DLC and giving it a run-through – which sounds like that means a new run through of the entire game. I just hope this DLC gives me more of what I love about Metro 2033. It sounds as if I won’t have to wait too long to find out.
