Metro 2033 Redux is the new edition of the 2010’s Metro 2033. The title was initially released for PC and Xbox 360, and four years later, the developers at 4A Games decided to release an enhanced version for the next-gen platforms (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One) as well as PC. The production is available for purchase as a standalone title through the digital distribution channels or boxed as a part of the Metro Redux bundle that also includes Metro: Last Light Redux.

Story

The story of Metro 2033 Redux for PC, PS4 and XONE takes place in the near future. After a nuclear apocalypse, the world as we know it ceased to exist and most humans died out, only a small group of a few thousand individuals managed to survive in the Moscow subway. However, it does not mean that things went back to normal. The inhabitants of this unusual shelter are threatened by mutated animals from the surface, of which attacks on humans become increasingly frequent. The player assumes the role of Artem, a young man who lives in the northern area of the subway where the defenses are significantly weakened. He is sent to Polis, the central part of the subway, to warn its inhabitants about the emerging monster threat and to ask for support.

Gameplay

The gameplay combines first-person shooter with survival horror elements. We have two possible approaches to choose from. Naturally, the basic one is to shoot our enemies, although sometimes we have to use shadows to sneak around. At the same time, one must remember that the game world’s currency are bullets. The developers prepared a few kinds of weapons and gadgets. The former include traditional ones such as a knife, sawed-off shotgun, or a rifle. Apart from that, there are also unique ones, for example, a pneumatic rifle that shoots steel balls, or a crossbow that fires steel bolts. Additionally, we will make use of a gas mask and a dynamo that lets us charge our lighter and night vision goggles.

Game modes

The production offers two additional game modes: Survival, that aims to provide survival horror experience (limited resources, more dangerous enemies, longer reload time), and Spartan, that's more action-oriented (Artem has powerful battle skills and bigger supplies). The famous Ranger Mode is still available.

Technical aspects

Metro 2033 Redux for PC, PS4 and XONE is powered by the latest version of 4A Engine, thanks to which the graphics are significantly better in comparison with the visuals of its predecessor Metro 2033. The developers also implemented an advanced lighting system, dynamic weather, improved animations and more detailed character models, among other things.
