THQ Inc. announced Metro 2033, a new first person shooter for Xbox 360 and PC based on the best-selling Russian novel of the same name by Dmitry Glukhovsky.

The PC version supports NVIDIA PhysX technology to enhance the incredibly realistic worlds and provide even more immersive gameplay.
“Metro 2033 will plunge gamers into a terrifying vision of the future,” said Richard Williams, vice president of global brand management, THQ. 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.
