‘Metro: 2033 Redux’ – 22 to 23 December

Metro: 2033 Redux, which was developed by 4A Games and published by Deep Silver back in March 2010, is a first-person shooter game set in 2033; twenty years after the world was devasted by an apocalyptic event.

Almost all of mankind was annihilated when the Earth’s surface turned into a poisonous wasteland. Only a handful of survivors were able to took refuge in the depths of the Moscow underground.

The annihilation event was the start of a new Dark Ages for humankind. The new generation, born and raised underground, need to face each other and “the horrors that await outside”.

You play as Artyom, born in the last days before the fire, but raised underground. You have never ventured beyond the city limits until one fateful event sparks a desperate mission to the heart of the Metro system.

Now it’s up to you to warn the remnants of mankind of a terrible impending threat. You will travel “from the forgotten catacombs beneath the subway to the desolate wastelands above, where your actions will determine the fate of mankind”.

However, the developers eerily ask: “But what if the real threat comes from within…?”

You have until 18:00 South African Standard Time (SAST) on 23 December to download Metro: 2033 Redux for free. Simply head over to the Epic Games launcher to get your copy.
