To celebrate its 10th anniversary, 4A Games is letting anyone hold its seminal sequel, Metro Last Light, for free on Steam between May 18-25. Once you’ve added the game to your Steam library, it stays with you.
Metro: Last Light directly follows the beginning of the game series, metro 2033, continuing the story of Artyom and his fight for survival in the harrowing tunnels beneath a post-apocalyptic Russian metropolis.

This is a game that looked great when it launched and continues to turn heads today.
