The promised tweaking of FOV for PC Metro: Last Light has arrived with the latest update via Steam. This lets those dead sure they want more on screen edit a config file - against 4A's general advise - to cram more in.
Also attached in this update is a fix for AMD cards of the 7xxx variety where some pesky shadow corruption was causing mischief; it forced Metro into a 3:1 resolution on some TVs.
The studio has from fiddly with the FOV because some many elements are tied to the default setting, like our character's arms, cinematics and UI.
"A patch has been released on Steam to fix issues with AMD hardware, and improve performance for these cards," 4A Games on the Steam forums. "It also fixes a shadow visual corruption bug on AMD 7xxx cards, and fixes an issue with the game starting only in 3:1 resolution on some TVs."
To customise the field of view for Metro: Last Light:
"After starting the game up, the user.cfg will be updated with the r_base_fox attribute. You can find this in %LOCALAPPDATA%4A GamesMetro LL. Tweak it at your leisure!"
Metro: Last Light releases on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC this week.
