Metro: Last Light just got a new trailer titled “Salvation.”
Deep Silver and 4A Games have released a new trailer for the shooter Metro: Last Light, showing mankind’s reckoning. The game trailer follows the plot and mankind’s futile attempts to make a better world.
The trailer starts with a small voyage through what appears to be an abandoned sewer filled with technological junk, including signs for the game’s developers. A door with the words “Metro: Last Light” opens slowly to darkness.
We then see what seems to be a military street fort with pikes and sandbags, and people lined up behind it.
A voice-over begins in a Russian accent, “In this scattered and cursed world, we wait for a brighter day to come.”
We see what appears to be a subterranean soup kitchen and a handle-operated train station. Gulags appear to be guarded by men in military garb. A man in said uniform is being helped along by someone in what seems to be rags and a cheap mask. A woman and her two children sit together by a tunnel entrance.
The voice-over continues, “But when time is running out, we seem to forget everything we have learned.”
We then see a man hung from something overhead as another is being forced to kneel at the rough suggestion of a man with a gun and flashlight behind him, as the man kicks him over the edge. A group of military types are gathered near a man begging for his life, “No! Please!” The pleading man gets shot in the chest uncaringly. Metro: Last Light seems to center around freedom fighters in the wake of a totalitarian government.
The Russian voice-over keeps going, “A quest for dominance,” as we see what looks like a Nazi-style gathering under neatly-arranged red flags, “and the beleaguered greed of a few rule our destiny. Do we not listen to the voices of the dead?”
The rest of the trailer is below.
