Today’s Epic Games Store freebie is 4A Games’ post-apocalyptic FPS, Metro 2033 Redux. Built on the same engine used for Metro: Last Light (2013), this is a complete remaster of the 2010 classic featuring upgraded graphics, new voice acting, user interface changes, new difficulty modes, and much more.

“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 synopsis reads. “A handful of survivors took refuge in the depths of the Moscow underground, and human civilization entered a new Dark Age.”

Some Metro fans have argued that Metro 2033 Redux changed the original game’s atmosphere for the worse, but you can decide for yourself by grabbing a free copy or checking out the comparison video below. 4A Games also recently confirmed that it was working on a brand-new, next-gen Metro game.

“It’s no secret that we have already started work on the next Metro game,” the developer noted. “Using everything we’ve learned from the last 15 years, we’ve set our sights even higher – the next title is being built for Gen 9 consoles and PC, with a complete overhaul of our engine and renderer to take advantage of the new power, storage, and hardware supported ray tracing afforded by the new consoles.”

  1. Nope.

    Nothing will convince me to install that trash client from that morally depraved company on my computer.

    Nothing.

  2. Ive played every Metro game.

    2033 Redux is very well done. Its worth the free price even if you have to use Epic….but yes their client is bad.

    I think I bought it from Steam holiday sale for 5 bucks.

    Very well worth the money to get and mant times it will be packaged with LastLight Redux which is also excellent.

    For me it isn’t even about the money, or about how good or bad the client is. I already own these, but if I didn’t, I’d rather pay on Steam than get it free on Epic in large part because I don’t want to reward their shitty bribed exclusionary policies.

    The moment they did that, I swore off ever using them no matter what.

    Epic is public enemy #1 as far as I am concerned.

    There is no exclusive and no freebie, and absolutely nothing ever at all that could persuade me to reward them by installing their shit.

    Market manipulators must die, and even if I can’t kill them myself, at least I can not support them.
