Metro: Last Light (formerly Metro 2034) is a first-person shooter video game developed by Ukrainian studio 4A Games and published by Deep Silver for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It was released in May 2013. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic world and features action-oriented gameplay with a combination of survival horror elements.
Previously announced as Metro 2034, the game is a sequel to Metro 2033, and although author Dmitry Glukhovsky has apparently been working with the developers, it bears no relation to the book Metro 2034. Initially, the game was to be published under THQ and expected to be released in the middle of 2012; it was announced on February 2, 2012, that the game would be delayed until the first quarter of 2013, in March 1, 2013 the game was delayed again until May. Following THQ’s closure in January 2013, the intellectual property was acquired by video game publisher Deep Silver.
During our testing it was apparent that the SSAA settings had a big hit on the frame rate. without this enabled, the frame count would literally double. Some work is going to be required from both driver teams to improve performance.
