News: Pre-Order Metro: Last Light On Steam, System Requirements Listed

metro-last-lightIf you just can’t wait for Metro: Last Light, you’re more than free to pre-order the upcoming shooter from Steam.

Pre-ordering Metro: Last Light gives you a few in-game goodies for your troubles, and you can also get a nifty 10% off if you own Metro 2033 as well.

The free goodies available to players who pre-order include mostly in-game items such as the Modified Russian Rifle, Ranger Mode and the military-grade bullets. The main draw to pre-ordering is the digital comic that you get, penned by Dmity Dlukhovsky himself who wrote the original Metro 2033 novel as well as contributing to Metro: Last Light as the games lead writer.

So if getting some in-game content and a digital comic sounds like a good reason to pre-order, go for it! Remember, if you own Metro 2033 you’re in for 10% off, further sweetening the sweet deal.

Steam has also got the minimum requirements and recommended system spec’s listed, so before you do go plunking down your money you’d best make sure that your PC can handle it.

Check out the requirements down below:


  • OS: Windows XP (32-bit), Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8
  • Processor: Dual Core CPU (2.2+ GHz Dual Core CPU or better
  • Memory: 2 GB
  • Video Card: DirectX 9, Shader Model 3-compliant graphics cards (GeForce 8800 GT 512 MB, GeForce GTS 250, etc)

  • Video Card: DirectX 11-compliant graphics card (GeForce GTX 480 and above)

To be fair, those aren’t the most demanding of requirements, most mid-range PC’s should be able to play it just fine, hell, even my laptop should be able to give it a go.

If your PC isn’t quite good enough to run Metro: Last Light, you can always get it on one of the home consoles as it’s releasing on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in addition to the PC.
