Earlier today, 4A confirmed via the Metro Video Game Twitter that they have a release date scheduled for the Mac version of Metro: Last Light – September 10.
Although it’s a long while after the May release for the console and PC versions, a positive note is that it definitely isn’t a rushed port, so players on the system can enjoy the same quality of gameplay as everyone else. Developed in-house by 4A Games, Oles Shishkovstov, Chief Technical Officer, speaks highly of the Mac and Linux versions: “…we are very happy with the results. We hope that Mac & Linux gamers will appreciate our efforts to create the best possible version for their machines.“
What’s more, it will release as a Steam Play title, making it available on both PC and Mac once a player owns the game on Steam.
The news comes alongside a statement by Deep Silver CEO Dr. Klemens Kundratitz that states the company is looking to broaden the Metro series’ audience, firstly “…through the release of dedicated Mac and Linux versions of Metro: Last Light.“
When queried on the Linux version’s release date, they received this response:
Mac owners can finally enjoy Metro: Last Light on September 10, and Linux owners can most likely expect a release in the following few months. In the meantime, why not check out the power behind Metro: Last Light, or the trailer below?
