THQ has announced the Metro 2033 Ranger Pack DLC, coming to Xbox 360 and PC (via Steam) in the "very near future".

The Ranger Pack adds new weapons, new Achievements and the deadly Ranger Mode game rules. In standard Ranger Mode, ammo is dramatically reduced and all weapons cause more damage. Enemies are also deadlier than ever.

Ranger Hardcore Mode adds an additional challenge as the HUD is totally removed, creating the most immersive Metro 2033 experience yet.

Also included are two new weapons - the Heavy Automatic Shotgun, and the Volt Driver, new achievements and 250 Gamerscore points.

Pricing will be announced closer to the DLC's release.
