THQ has confirmed the release date for one of the most anticipated 1st person shooter games for the year, METRO 2033, and I don’t think we want to miss this one. Set in the year 2033, the world has suffered an apocalyptic event and turned the Earth into a wasteland. The game is set in the underground of Moscow, where a handful of survivors has taken shelter in the Metro Station fearing what lies above.
You play the character Artyom, born just days before the event that changed the Earth forever. He has never before ventured out of the sanctuary that is Metro Station-City, but a mission into the heart of the underground changes all of that. You must fight for your survival and the survival of your fellow man against the mutant horror that lies above.
Looks like a fantastic game with a great story. METRO 2033 will be available for the Xbox 360 and PC, is scheduled for release in North American stores on March 16th, and European stores on March 19th 2010. Prepare for Underground War.
