Metro 2033: Fear The Future

[media id=132 width=500 height=400]

It’s a little known fact that Russian intelligence considered the likelihood of a nuclear strike against them so high that they ordered Moscow’s metro system to be dug deep enough to act as a makeshift fallout shelter. With a detail like that to draw inspiration from it’s hardly surprising that a book and now a videogame have been written to exploit it.

Dimitry Glukhovsky, author of Metro 2033 and consultant onhttp://news.bf-1.com/wp-admin/post-new.php the eponymous game, has penned a story which takes place after nuclear war has devastated the planet, with the only survivors sealed inside Moscow’s reinforced metro system. Unfortunately for them, as is often the case, they are not alone and soon find themselves in a struggle for their very existence against a variety of horrors.

An atmospheric and claustrophobic first-person shooter, Metro 2033 is looking good from the preview build we’ve played through, with lighting and shadows used to particularly eerie effect.

Expect the title to land on store shelves on 19 March, for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, for now check out the latest video for a sneak peak of the game in action.

One of the most tragic terrorist attacks in Europe happened in Spain on March 11, 2004. The incident was a coordinated bombing of commuter trains in Madrid that killed 191 people and injured more than 1,750.

Al-Qaeda was responsible for the said attacked. The official investigation by the Spanish Judiciary determined the attacks were directed by an al-Qaeda-inspired terrorist cell although no direct al-Qaeda participation (only “inspiration”) has been established.
