Deep Silver is offering a free digital copy of Dmitry Glukhovsky’s novel Metro 2033 with all PC copies of Metro: Last Light. The eBook will be awarded to players when they authenticate the 4A Games shooter on Steam.

The Metro games and books have a complicated relationship. Metro 2033 drew heavy inspiration from the novel of the first name, but the second book – Metro 2034 – is so experimental and oddball that both 4A Games and Glukhovsky weren’t keen on seeing it adapted. Instead, Metro: Last Light has an original story penned by Glukhovsky specifically for the game.

So, in short: if you really like the themes and story of Metro 2033, and you want the full picture fo the post-apocalyptic canon, you may want to investigate the novels – and luckily, you’ve been given a free opportunity to see if you like the first one.

Metro: Last Light turns up part way through May, after a wait of approximately forever. Metro 2035, Glukhovsky’s third novel in the series, is expected in English later this year. The series has sold over 2 million copies worldwide to date.

Book has much better pacing than the game. It also includes many of the enemies from the game except for nosalises, but has some other interesting ones that may show up in Last Light.

It also seems to be set in the same metro, just Artyom takes a different path to get across it.

 

do i get the book if ive pre-ordered with GMG? I can only hope :(

So yes.
