Metro 2033 'Ranger Pack' DLC Coming to PC, Xbox 360 on August 3

Hunters have a new challenge ahead of them as the first downloadable content for Metro 2033 is arriving August 3 on PC and Xbox 360.

First revealed in May 2010, the "Ranger Pack" adds two new weapons--the Heavy Automatic Shotgun and the Volt Driver--and new achievements.

The content also adds "Ranger Mode," which "dramatically" reduces ammo and increases damage on all weapons as well as "Ranger Hardcore," which removes the game's heads-up display (or HUD, if you want to be like that.)

Metro 2033's "Ranger Pack" is priced at 240MS Points ($3 US) on the Xbox 360 and included as a free, upcoming auto-update on PC via Steam.

Xav de Matos was previously a games journalist creating content at Shacknews.

      I just can't stand the grainy textures that this game has inherited from the STALKER series. I don't know what the deal is, but it looks as though everything is peppered with tiny grains of sand.

        It takes place in a post-apocalyptic subway and sewer. What's not to understand?

          Who said it was a problem of understanding? How many sand dunes do you see in sewers and subways?

          The graininess seems to be a fundamental 'characteristic' of the engine that these Russian devs seem to use (some of the same people who made STALKER migrated to the Metro team).

            How many post-apocalyptic sewers/subways get routine maintenance and cleaning? Remember this game takes place many years after the nukes.
