THQ to Publish Metro 2033

THQ announces they will be publishing Metro 2033 in 2010, offering Windows and Xbox 360 gamers this futuristic first-person shooter from Ukrainian developer 4A Games (it looks like the planned PS3 edition has been dropped somewhere along the way). The game, first announced three years ago, is based on a "best-selling" Russian novel by Dmitry Glukhovsky. The game's official website features a new gameplay trailer, and here's a bit more:

The PC version supports NVIDIA® PhysX® technology to enhance the incredibly realistic worlds and provide even more immersive gameplay. Metro 2033 is scheduled for release in early 2010, and the first trailer is available to view on the official website at www.Metro2033Game.com.

"Metro 2033 will plunge gamers into a terrifying vision of the future," said Richard Williams, vice president of global brand management, THQ. "4A Games have worked closely with Dmitry Glukhovsky to deliver a unique game world, a compelling, cinematic story and an incredible, atmospheric experience to rival anything in the category."

“Metro 2033 boasts some of the most advanced graphics and PhysX effects we’ve ever seen,” said Ujesh Desai, vice president of GPU business at NVIDIA. “From what we’ve seen so far, this will be a showcase PC gaming title for 2010!”

Looks to be fantastic except for the fact that it will cut off 1/2 is customer base with its PhysX usage. Also not so keen on the fact that it's a 360 release also; lets just hope they remember how to do a PC game proper.
