Deep Silver announced today that the third piece of downloadable content (DLC) for the game Metro: Last Light will be available worldwide on Valve's Steam distribution platform and on Microsoft's Xbox Live on September 17th of this month for North America.
The add-on will also land on the PlayStation Network on the same day in North America and will arrive on September 18th for Europe and the rest of the world.
The features of the DLC include allowing players to experiment with every gun and combination in a shooting range and take marksmanship challenges, an AI arena to pit soldier and mutants against each other and allow players to view Metro characters in a "Metro Museum". The add-on also includes a solo mission called The Spider's Nest.
The new pack will cost $3.99 unless you want to get the Season Pass which runs $14.99. The fourth, and final, pack named, the "Chronicles Pack", will feature more single-player mission when it is released at some point in the future.
Deep Silver today announced that the 'Developer Pack' - the third piece of add-on content for Metro: Last Light - will be available worldwide on Steam and the Xbox Live online entertainment network from Microsoft on September 17th, and will hit the PlayStation Network on September 17th in North America and September 18th in Europe and the rest of the world.
There are three main parts to the Developer Pack
• Players can experiment with every gun and attachment combination in the Shooting Range, and complete unique marksman challenges for each weapon
• The AI Arena allows players to pit customisable squads of human soldiers and mutants against each other or prove themselves in several challenges
• Lastly, players can explore Metro's cast of characters, and human and mutant foes, up close in the 'Metro Museum'
The Developer Pack also includes an original solo mission - The Spider's Nest - that will truly test the nerves of arachnophobes. Use your wits, your lighter, your torch... and the brand new Flamethrower to escape from a spider infested catacomb...
The Developer Pack will cost just $3.99 / £3.19 / €3.99, and is the third of four add-on packs to be included in the Metro: Last Light Season Pass, which at $14.99 / £11.99 / €14.99 offers a discount over buying the packs separately, and also includes an additional exclusive weapon, the Abzats.
The final add-on content for Metro: Last Light - the 'Chronicles Pack' - will feature three original single player missions that cast the player as four of the game's standout characters - Pavel, Khan & Ulman, and Anna - and explore their side-stories away from Artyom's adventure.

About Metro: Last Light
It Is the Year 2034.
Beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside - and within. Mutants stalk the catacombs beneath the desolate surface, and hunt amidst the poisoned skies above.
But rather than stand united, the station-cities of the Metro are locked in a struggle for the ultimate power, a doomsday device from the military vaults of D6. A civil war is stirring that could wipe humanity from the face of the earth forever.
As Artyom, burdened by guilt but driven by hope, you hold the key to our survival - the last light in our darkest hour...
