Stacks of Metro 2033 news has arrived in the last few days, so I thought I’d do a quick rundown. First up was the news that the game will be supporting DirectX 11, for which THQ released a bunch of new screenshots, one of which is above. That’s some eleven, right there. Great news for that bloke I saw buying a DX11 capable card in PC World the other day… Then, perhaps more interestingly, there’s the news that the game will be shipping with Steamworks. What does that mean? Well, Steam Achievements, Steam support for in-game DLC, and a bunch of other Steam stuff including the cloud savegame thing, so you can keep your saves online. Finally Eurogamer have some footage of the game being played. Doesn’t look terrible, anyway.
It’s out on March 19th.
