It’s time to join the Spartan Order, Ranger.

Deep Silver today issued an essential utility: the survival guide for Metro: Last Light. The first video released in a series of three, the survival guide prepares players for their service in the Spartan Order, the self-styled protectors of the Metro. It familiarizes would-be Rangers with the dangers they will face within the different areas of post-apocalyptic Moscow: the tunnels of the Metro, the ravaged surface wasteland and the deadly transition levels in between. Each zone harbours its own dreadful hazards, be it human enemies from hostile, warring factions, abhorrent mutants or the toxic environment itself. Designed to prepare Rangers for their mission to protect the survivors in the Metro, this guide is the ultimate support tool in the struggle for existence within the terrifying world of Metro: Last Light.

The game will be available from May 14, 2013 in North America and May 17, 2013 across Europe for PlayStation®3, the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC.
