maybe this is open world metro will be..
(notice the colour palette)
That looks way to bright and colorful to be a metro game
its remind me of crysis 3 color scheme. who knows? maybe the radiation finally clear off and all that remain are marshes and lots of water from nuclear winter (aka Nuclear summer ).

Hail Metro! Atmosphere and setting are what makes Metro so good. While post-apocalyptic, the places that you visit never feel like angst ridden hellholes that are one dimensional but actual places where people are still trying to get by and live in (watching how people live in the two games is always fascinating to me). It helps that the writing for several characters portray them as humans with complex motivations and loyalties rather than one dimensional characters. I like the games from a writing perspective. The bullet sponge bosses are annoying though. Hopefully there will be a third Metro game since Last Light was a while ago.
Looks like the Dark Ones have begun cleaning up the surface or there is not as much damage than they thought.
Depends how many years have passed, there really might be not much damage left to see. Someoen remembers this, what if humans would be gone? Videos. Well, if they are to believed it would take just a couple of decades before you would have a very hard time to find traces of humanity. Most buildings would colapse, rivers, plantlife and animals would reclaim the cities and strange enough ... the great Wall and the Pyramids would soon remain the only really visible objects made by humans ...
True, erosion and lack of maintenance would slowly erase all traces of humanity and the damage would not be evident at first glance. I think I saw a documentary of a similar vein to aforesaid videos.
Though if I recall, the nuclear apocalypse in Metro was a rather recent event since Artyom recalls a brief life on the surface as a child before the missiles rained down on the surface and in the setting, there are older people attempting to keep the knowledge of the surface (like normal animals) alive for the children in the Metro.
interestingly, we already have those. look at the chernobyl and pripyat, those place were full of life eventhough the radiation were more severe than a aftermath of dirty bomb fallout dust
I just hope they won't make this completely an open world game. We seriously have already enough open world shooters ... and there are also more on the horizon.
whats the problem with open world?
i'm sure exploring "open world" metro is not same as in farcry or new vegas, but rather like how you backtracking and explore tunnel in fallout 3 because the collapsing building in surface. i mean, who is not want to explore all this station?
Because open world games are very different to the tight and confined narrative you had with Metro 1 and 2. Or if you want Half Life, Fear etc. I am not saying open world games can't have a great story or awesome gameplay. I like Open world games. I just don't want everything to be open world, just because it is the new shit right now. What I always liked about games is diversity. And you can not denny that many open world games feel very similar and formulaic. For example, very few open world games can create a sense of urgency. Simply because that is completely detrimental to the design princple of open world games. I very much would prefer some kind of hybrid here. Think about Witcher 1 or Witcher 2, where it was not completely open, but more about instances that you could explore with your own pace. But once a chapter was done, you had no way to return to it.
this is was a alpha metro when it was demonstrated back in 2009. the developer didn't like it well enough, so what you get is the one that closer to the book.
but, no return? i dont want it. the 4a is surely talented, i have faith that they will execute it well no matter if it were open world or not. we are talking about studio that produce AAA game with 10%budget of far cry or CoD games. plus the cold of kiev in ukraine
It's not just about how well excecuted it is. Again, I LIKE(!) open world games ... it's just that it can get very boring, particularly when it is used like a gimick. Name me one open world game that is not grindy at some point. Because simply put, they almost all work very similar here. Metro simply put, never was an open world game. So the change here is quite huge. So it will definetly feel very different to the previous games. Here again ... I like Open world games, just as much like the next guy. But I feel that the decision to make Metro open world, was more a marketing decision than anything else.
Nothing wrong with open world, but a lot of recent games have been lazy open world games full of repetitive crap "quests" that involve boring unlock/upgrade systems and a terrible story. I'd call it "Open World Syndrome."
I would like an open world Metro RPG, but only if it's made by developers who understand the value of Metro and post-apocalyptic RPGs (not Bethesda).
Metro has a very rich universe that is wasted on linear FPS games, because it just moves you through a themepark ride showing off all the cool parts of the world without letting you interact with it at all or talk to anyone. RPGs are much better for such a rich and immersive fictional universe.
the kshatriya mission from the chronicle pack gives a glimpse of what open world metro could be.
a seemingly linear level with multiple route (due to the metro tunnel ) and random mutant spawn.
Despite the highest quality, Metro Last Light is somewhat a disappointment. 4A add too much to bump immersion and add visible paths to choices yet remain linear horror-FPS and LL still asks nicely for main character to talk yet he still play speechless. Play because he still talks in the loading screens. Open world or not, the Deus Ex-like game design should work fine here.
The story now has a hollywood movie vibe trapped in unsuitable game for this. I still ask for female sniper not so nicely to stay away from the story.
If Gluhovsky wrote the script for Last Light then what's non-canon now - Metro 2034 or Last Light? The storyline from 2033 and 2034 ties together in Metro 2035. Where's LL's place?
Last Light's place is in the video game series, the books are an entirely separate canon.
Yeah, it's not like the video games followed the books very closely to begin with.
Did anyone read the book itself? Don't you find it messy, like Fallout 3's lore messy?
