Metro last light  - soldiers

Welcome to the Russian underground dystopia of Metro: Last Light. Enter the vast crumbling Metro system where the last of humanity survives as you uncover a horrifying and complex puzzle. Even now, where the world is at its end, the divided factions of man still wages war. The bloodshed is all in the name of ultimate power, a doomsday device located somewhere in the military vaults of D6.

Last Light is the sequel to Metro 2033 that is based on a book by the same name, written by Dmitry Glukhovsky. You play as Artyom, a young man who was born a few days before the nuclear attack on Russia in 2013. The attack resulted in radiation spreading across the surface, forcing its inhabitants to flee into the underground railway network of the Metro. Humans and animals that remained above were infected by the radiation, turning them into mutant creatures that later became known as the Dark Ones. Metro: Last Light takes place a year after the events of the previous game, after Artyom managed to launch a missile strike that destroyed the Dark Ones. But now, a year later, it is discovered that a Dark One has survived, causing much tension and loathing between the Metro factions.
