Metro 2033

Metro 2033

Yet another FPS you guess? And you guess right! This first person shooter is being developped by 4A Games, an Ukrainian game company, and is based on a cult novel of the Russian author Dmitriy Glukhovskiy "Metro 2033".
The world lies in ruins. Humanity is almost annihilated. Due to the high level of radiation cities became unsuitable for living... The storyline takes place 20 years after these events, and takes as a starting point the metro tunnels of Moscow - The largest anti-nuclear shelter of the planet, where some strange things are happening (Mutants inside).

Looks like "Stalker" which was announced for the pc a long time ago!

In February there was an article about members of gdc which left the company and took some parts with. Well, I think the x-ray engine has some new owners :-)

Sorry..i´ve only a german link to that statement:

here you can read the story about stalker, which is nearly the same:

With FoM coming out as launch title, the PS3 doesn't need this.

Well at least I know I don't.
This looks horrible.

The more FPS that come exclusively on PS3 the more I feel I may need to buy a PS3.

I really dont care for platformers or JRPGs.

I don't even see why those kind of games need a 600$ hardcore graphics machine.

Bring on the FPS please!!!!!!!!!

Looks Average. The things are blurred to the extreme and the textures arent all that good. I wish they had made the 360 and ps3 with 1 gig of ram.

Aww dude no way..we need JPRGs..games are a way for us to escape our reality and immerse ourselves in another..

JPRGs are just good stories, great character development, strategy, great cutscenes and awesome mini games and unlockables.. We need them as much as FPS fans want FPS games.

Looking very good.

I hope this is a slower paced creep-out style of FPS. Those are pretty thin on the ground right now.

I'd put money on this game looking really fantastic in motion.

btw, this is also being releaed on the 360 and PC apparently
[edit]

Nope. was wrong. WorthPlaying.com were listing it for 360 also, but the official press release only says ps3/pc.

Release date is Q4 2008 (!!) So to look this good with 2 years still to go is impressive

So this is a PS3 exclusive shooter? Neat. I actually think the textures look pretty nice for a early build. The hand could use quite a bit a work though. It's reminding me a little of Half Life 2 and a little of Resistance: Fall of Man right now. That is a good thing.

    Moonwalker But Malaga was great. Loved the weather, the hills and mountains. We went to the sea, a zoo, cable car up a mountain and last but not least visited their red light district too, haha. (3 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker And it was quite a sight to eventually be above the clouds or see nothing but clouds or sky and no land below you, lovely. (3 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker @asdfg: @asdfg: Great. A very nice experience and not scary or whatsoever at all. Quite awesome to see how you lift off and before you know it Amsterdam / Malaga was waaaaaay down below. (3 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker Back in Holland after my vacation in Malaga, Spain. Two more hours by train and then I'm home. Spain was fucking awesome. (4 Hours ago)
