Another day, another live-action trailer for Metro: Last Light that doesn't offer much in the way of gameplay, story, or anything really. See for yourself below.

And there you have the Russian knock off of "Pretty Woman."
At this rate, I can hardly wait for the trailer giving us the backstory of "Guard #2" and "Woman in babushka."
In all seriousness, we do learn that, like Metro 2033, bullets will be again used as currency. Whether you can use them to buy yourself a lady of the evening for a night of romance in a squalid abandoned tunnel? That's anyone's guess really.
Like the Preacher trailer before it, these live action trailers for Metro: Last Light aren't really cutting it.
A sequel to 2010's Metro 2033, itself based on the book of the same title, we still know very little about the Metro: Last Light's plot. It doesn't seem to be based on the book sequel, titled "Metro 2034," but the author Dmitry Glukhovsky has been working with the Last Light developers, so there may be a few similarities here and there.
To play catch up, Metro 2033 was set in the beautiful and scenic undergrounds of an irradiated, post-apocalyptic Russia. During the chaos of the bombing, people struggled their way into the underground metro stations for shelfter. Anything left on the surface was exposed to heavy doses of radiation, and over the next 20 years, mutated into creatures called the Dark Ones. Protagonist Artyom was tasked with making his way through various Metros (based on the various rumors), since organized into nation-states, to get to a missile silo to destroy the Dark Ones. Upon reaching the silo, the player is left with a choice which impacts the ending received.
Fast forward to now, and...well, that's it. Save for some live-action trailers, and a single gameplay trailer (which could easily have been a flashback), we know nothing more about the plot.
With the first-person visual and post-apocalyptic setting, one could easily make the mistake of calling this Fallout lite, but the emphasis seems to be more on action than exploration.
A release date is planned for March of next year.
