The gameplay clip of Metro: Last Light, released by THQ, rocked a lot of the media and attendees at this year’s E3 convention. As the video indicates, the eyes-on, live demo brought in 20 awards from different publications.

“Welcome to Moscow” created some all-too-valuable buzz for Metro‘s next. Now, you can find out why.

You’ll also catch a glimpse of the borrowed-time dynamic in action. Metro: Last Light is a game about a society forced underground by some sort of nuclear attack. You can watch a live action trailer for the event here. The game delivers a surface air that’s been poisoned; gamers survive the poison by stocking themselves with limited-use air filters. That adds more intensity to already tense moments.

Metro: Last Light is currently set to launch for the PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U platforms in early 2013.
