The Metro Franchise Will Be Coming To Google Stadia

Google Staida was happy to announce this week that 4A Games will be bringing the Metro franchise over to its platform. In order to prepare players for all of the action titles to come, the company will soon be releasing both Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux for purchase in the Stadia store. This will allow players new to the series to step into the boots of Artyom and make their way into the Moscow Metro in what are two remastered versions of the games complete with all the content they need to get the most out of them. We have more details from Google below, as well as an announcement trailer for you to check out. No word yet as to when they will be released on Stadia beyond "soon".

To help fans get more context on the story-driven Metro series, the folks at 4A Games and Deep Silver are bringing "Redux" versions of the first two games, Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light to Stadia. Fans of the first-person shooter genre have been able to enjoy Metro: Exodus on Google Stadia since November, especially since the game became available for Pro members to claim for free back in February. What makes the series so compelling is its original basis in the series of novels from Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky, but folks may, reasonably, not want to dive straight into the third title. To that end, 4A Games is bringing Metro 2033 Redux — a remastered version of the original 2010 title — and Metro: Last Light Redux — the second title in the series along with its DLC — to Google Stadia.

All the gameplay improvements and features from the acclaimed sequel Metro: Last Light have been transferred to Metro 2033 Redux – superior AI, controls, animation, weapon handling, and many more – to create a thrilling experience for newcomers and veterans alike. With both sequels (Metro: Last Light and Metro Exodus), the entire trilogy of this genre-defining series will soon be playable on Stadia.
