The Mac port of Metro: Last Light will make its way to the App store soon, publisher Deep Silver says. All DLC and the Season Pass will be available to Mac users, while a Linux port is due sometime later this year.
Metro: Last Light is set a year after the events of 4A Games' Metro 2033, based on the novel of the same name. Metro: Last Light follows humanity's struggle to survive while inhabiting the underground subway systems of Russia following an apocalyptic nuclear war. It's a game our review said "truly excels at pacing and direction, even while it dabbles with verbose characters and an ambiguous supernatural element."
Larkspur, Calif., September 10, 2013 Deep Silver and 4A Games today released a dedicated Mac version of Metro: Last Light via Steam, with an App Store release set to follow shortly. A Linux version is also in development, scheduled for release later in the year.
Metro: Last Light on Steam will support Steam Play, meaning that owners of any Steam version will automatically find the game added to their PC, Mac and Linux Steam libraries.
Metro: Last Light for Mac and Linux will receive the same DLC packages as the PC and console versions. The Metro: Last Light Season Pass, and the Faction Pack and Tower Pack DLC will be available at launch for the Mac Steam release, and the upcoming Developer and Chronicles Packs will release on Mac alongside the PC and console releases.

About Metro: Last Light
It Is the Year 2034.
Beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside and within. Mutants stalk the catacombs beneath the desolate surface, and hunt amidst the poisoned skies above.
But rather than stand united, the station-cities of the Metro are locked in a struggle for the ultimate power, a doomsday device from the military vaults of D6. A civil war is stirring that could wipe humanity from the face of the earth forever.
As Artyom, burdened by guilt but driven by hope, you hold the key to our survival the last light in our darkest hour...
