On The Tube: Metro 2033

By Jim Rossignol on January 8th, 2010.


After several years in development hell, it looks as if the Ukrainian shooter Metro 2033 will finally surface in “early 2010″. THQ have put out another trailer, showing a little more about the world, and the challenges that the lead character, Artum, will face. It’s worth mentioning that despite the post-apocalyptic theme and Ukrainian heritage this is not “another Stalker”, as it’s a traditional scripted shooter. Nevertheless it’s looking good, as you’ll see below.

Metro: 2033, Official Trailer

By Jim Rossignol on October 22nd, 2009.


We’ve been following this Ukrainian shooter since the first footage appeared a couple of years ago. Metro 2033 appears to be what THQ did after the split with GSC, and it has the same dark-future apocalypse vibes as Stalker. This time it’s set in a Moscow ravaged by monsters, with the survivors of the apocalypse hiding in the Russian capital’s epic metro system. It’s got a strong “Russian Fallout” whiff to it, which echoes what a 1c boss said to me last year about their love of the game. THQ’s blurb reads: “You are Artyom, born in the last days before the fire, but raised Underground. Having never ventured beyond your Metro Station-City limits, one fateful event sparks a desperate mission to the heart of the Metro system, to warn the remnants of mankind of a terrible impending threat. Your journey takes you from the forgotten catacombs beneath the subway to the desolate wastelands above, where your actions will determine the fate of mankind.” Anyway, go take a look, this is very promising.

Those Who Survived Tuesday? Metro 2033 Is Back

By John Walker on December 22nd, 2008.

The available screenshots are still from the 2006 version.

The first time I saw Metro 2033 was during Games Convention 2006 when 4A Games‘ “pre-alpha” footage was released. A bit of quiet for two years, and now some, um, pre-alpha footage has been released. However, if you go back and forth between the two almost shot-for-shot-the-same trailers, you can see quite how much progress has been made with their 4A Engline.
