Experience a Post-Apocalyptic World Unlike Any Other in Metro 2033, A New Benchmark in Atmosphere and Immersion

THQ Inc. today announced the release of Metro 2033, a landmark title in the first-person genre. Based on a novel by the Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky, Metro 2033 combines classic first-person-shooter action with elements of survival horror and intelligent plot and character development not seen before in gaming, to create a true genre original. Metro 2033 is now available to purchase at retail stores around the world for both the Xbox 360 and Games for Windows.

"Metro 2033 offers gamers an experience unlike any other," said Richard Williams, Vice President, THQ Global Brand Management. "We’ve taken an extremely deep, engaging story, an incredible Russian twist on the post apocalyptic setting, and wrapped it up in some of the very best cinematic, first person action gameplay. The world of Metro 2033 is going to be talked about for years to come, just like other great gaming worlds that have gone before."

Metro 2033’s unique atmosphere is made possible by the brand new technology powering it. The proprietary 4A Engine produces some of the most spectacular visuals yet seen on Xbox 360, while PC owners will benefit from a host of advanced features that ensure Metro 2033 sets a new standard in graphical fidelity.
