The first piece of DLC is out for Metro Last Light, it’s called the Faction Pack where you the player get to play through three different set-ups that take place during the campaign. You aren’t playing the main character but playing other people that exist in the world. The first character you play as is a sniper of the Redline and you’re tasked with infiltrating Reich Outpost at night. This outpost is heavily guarded and will take some skill to go through. You also have the shadows as your friend and it’s also during a very deadly radioactive storm.
The second mission is defending the front line as a member of Reich. You get to play heavily armored and defend the front line. As defending you get two awesome weapons the Rail Gun which is a form of a sniper rifle and you get a mini-gun which is always is fun to use in a game. Your character is really powerful and you need to be considering this mission is very hard where you will be facing several waves of enemies of different magnitudes.
The third mission you are a Polis Ranger in training which is really cool where your character is exploring the library complex for all kinds of artifacts and every day items. This mission you get a board and there are 30 items to find. Since you’re a a Ranger in training you get stripped of all your cool weapons and have to earn them by find items above to get better weapons this also goes for armor and ammo. You do start this section with a sub-machine gun stock and you get a shotgun pistol with dragon-breath ammo to help you light enemies on fire.
All three missions in this piece of DLC are a ton of fun to play. I really like the sniper mission and the front line one’s pointing towards the front of the pack. It is also very nice to be able to play the game from different point of views than you do while you are playing the campaign missions. I would say that these missions have a good amount of replay-ability since you can always play them differently mainly the Polis ranger mission. Your looking at clocking at least 3 or more hours for this piece of DLC which is pretty good considering there is more DLC to come when you get the season pass. It was nice to come back to Metro: Last Light after not playing it for a while. The Faction Pack puts you right back into the game with some new missions and 4A Games did a great job at it.
