Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light from 4A Games will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Deep Silver confirms. The publisher isn’t quite ready to go into detail yet on its plans, confirming the news today only as a response to recent rumors, but an official announcement will happen in the next few months.

The rumors started when Italian website everyeye.it posted what appeared to be a retail listing for a game titled Metro: Redux  (captured by IGN). The listing claimed Metro: Redux – which would include remastered versions of 2033 and Last Light, along with a soundtrack, art cards, and limited edition packaging – was coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in July 2014.

Rather than respond to the rumors with a typical “no comment,” Deep Silver decided to get in front of the leak and confirm that the bundle is real. Here’s all we know, via the official comment:

Metro Redux. You may have heard of it… even though you probably shouldn’t have!

We could issue a ‘We do not comment on rumour and speculation’ statement and pretend this never happened. They’re pretty boring to read. They’re also pretty boring to write.

So we’re going to comment on rumour and speculation instead.

Is Metro Redux real?

Yes. We never made any secret of 4A’s desire to bring Metro to the latest generation of console hardware.

The post goes on to warn that any leaked artwork is from an old presentation that was never meant to be released to the public, and the listing contained information that was never anything more than a placeholder. In other words, things like the release date and the additional content may never have been intended to be a part of the bundle. Deep Silver also noted that additional news on Metro: Redux will be coming on “this side of E3,” meaning we’ll know more before the annual trade show descends in June.

Cities: Skylines 2 devs offer DLC refunds as console ports get delayed
A screenshot from Cities: Skylines 2's Beach Properties DLC.

Cities: Skylines 2 developer Colossal Order confirmed that it will be offering refunds to people who purchased the Beach Properties DLC, adding more content to the Ultimate Edition version of the game, delaying the launch of Cities: Skylines 2's console ports and its first expansion, and focusing on free updates and patches in the short term.

It did so while making a massive apology in the wake of the PC city-builder's messy launch and first DLC release. When Cities: Skylines 2 initially released last October, it was very unpolished and felt a bit inferior to the original Cities: Skylines. At the time, I wrote, "It’s OK to wait until the game is a little more stable and has as vibrant a community as its predecessor." Although Colossal Order has been patching the game, it reignited ire against the city-builder in March by releasing a $10 Beach Properties DLC, an underwhelming asset pack that didn't even add beaches to the game.

How to start the Rising Tide DLC in Final Fantasy 16
Rising Tide DLC

Final Fantasy 16's base adventure is already a long and winding tale full of intrigue, but that doesn't mean there isn't more story to be told in its world. Like the Echoes of the Fallen DLC before it, The Rising Tide DLC serves as an additional journey for Clive and company to undertake, providing players the opportunity to discover various all-new enemies, locations, and characters. This fresh content even includes Leviathan as a new Eikon for Clive to encounter, making it a must-play for completionists hoping to experience everything in the game. If you're wondering how to start The Rising Tide DLC, look no further — we'll tell you how to do so below.
How to start The Rising Tide DLC in Final Fantasy 16
To access The Rising Tide DLC in Final Fantasy 16, you'll first need to be sure you've purchased and downloaded the content. You can buy The Rising Tide as a standalone DLC for $15 or as part of the Expansion Pass, which also includes the Echoes of the Fallen DLC, for $25.

Once you've purchased and downloaded the DLC, however, there's more you'll need to do before you can start tackling the new content in The Rising Tide. For starters, you'll need to have unlocked Origin as a destination on the world map, which requires you to be at the end of the main campaign. You'll also have to complete the two sidequests, "Where There's a Will" and "Priceless," for Joshua and Jill, respectively. After clearing those quests, you can finally head to Clive's quarters at the Hideaway and check the missives table. There, you'll find an unmarked letter that lets you begin a new quest called “The Rising Tide."
