|Delisting:||October 26, 2018 - Steam|
Deep Silver (Xbox 360, 2014)
Metro 2033 was delisted from Steam no later than October 26th, 2018. On the day before it was available to download for free to anyone on Steam. Metro 2033 was delisted approximately four years after the release of the remake, Metro 2033 Redux, published by Deep Silver after the dissolution of THQ.
The delisting is likely due to lingering ties to the THQ-published original or fear of confusion between the two version of the game. The Xbox 360 version has remained available to download since release and is now published by Deep Silver.
About the Game
“Set in the shattered subway of a post apocalyptic Moscow, Metro 2033 is a story of intensive underground survival where the fate of mankind rests in your hands.
In 2013 the world was devastated by an apocalyptic event, annihilating almost all mankind and turning the earth’s surface into a poisonous wasteland. A handful of survivors took refuge in the depths of the Moscow underground, and human civilization entered a new Dark Age.
The year is 2033. An entire generation has been born and raised underground, and their besieged Metro Station-Cities struggle for survival, with each other, and the mutant horrors that await outside.
You are Artyom, born in the last days before the fire, but raised Underground. Having never ventured beyond your Metro Station-City limits, one fateful event sparks a desperate mission to the heart of the Metro system, to warn the remnants of mankind of a terrible impending threat. Your journey takes you from the forgotten catacombs beneath the subway to the desolate wastelands above, where your actions will determine the fate of mankind.“
