Metro: Last Light (http://metro.thq.com/) is a sequel to Metro 2033 ‚?? highly acclaimed survival-horror shooter, released in March 2010. In addition to decent atmospheric story and great visuals, Metro 2033 was also supporting GPU PhysX (http://physxinfo.com/data/vreview_metro.html).

Recent video interview (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6PwE8L0o32o) with Huw Beynon, Communications Lead at THQ, reveals some details about PhysX effects (with emphasis on X) in new Metro: Last Light (starting 6:16 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6PwE8L0o32o&t=6m16s)).

‚??Huge amount of particle effects‚??, cloth physics and destructible environments were mentioned. According to our other sources, namely GPU PhysX support (since CPU PhysX will be used in any case) in this title is highly plausible.

Lets hope that this time hardware PhysX content will be not that subtle, as in in previous game. Metro: Last Light is planned to be released in 2012.
