THQ searched high and low, and found a license that will allow it to bring something new and unique to the gaming scene: a post-apocalyptic FPS. Metro 2033 is in development for PC and Xbox 360 and based on the novel of the same name by Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky.
Ukrainian developer 4A Games' Metro 2033 is set in the subways of a ruined Moscow. You play Artyorn, a young man who has never ventured outside of the Vault "Metro Station-City" to which he is loyal. His adventure takes him around the Metro system, home of other factions (some of which are hostile), and to the inhospitable above-ground world.
According to Amazon, a new English printing of the novel will be released in February. While we aren't certain that provides a time frame in which to expect the game (currently slated for "2010"), it does mean that readers will be able to totally spoil the events of the game.THQ announces 'Metro 2033,' a post-apocalyptic FPS originally appeared on Joystiq on Thu, 22 Oct 2009 09:28:00 EST.
