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.

    Metro 2033 is pretty darn fantastic on the pc, easily one of the best looking games on the platform at the moment (its no slouch in the hardware requirements) but that aside, its got some genuinely great atmosphere. Sure its a fairly linear FPS, but you are doing yourself a diservice if are a FPS fan and not playing this.

    Also helllloooo free DLC on the PC, thank you!

      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.
