Metro: 2033, Official Trailer


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.
