Metro 2033 free for Facebook fans

Those who "Like" the official Metro page will receive PC download code redeemable at Steam until December 16.

by

In advance of Metro: Last Light's debut early next year, THQ has made the original Metro 2033 free through a new Facebook promotion. Beginning today and running through December 16, gamers can score a PC copy of the 2010 shooter by "Liking" the official Metro Facebook page.

Download codes are redeemable through Steam. The Metro 2033 promotion is open to legal residents of the United States and the District of Columbia who are 17 or older. The offer is also available for United Kingdom residents.

Metro 2033 was released for the PC and Xbox 360 during March 2010 to generally positive reviews. A film based on Dmitry Glukhovsky's science fiction novel, which was the source material for Metro 2033, is also in the works.

As for its sequel, Metro: Last Light, that game was recently delayed to March 2013 and is currently in development at 4A Games for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Competitive multiplayer was at one time planned for the game, but has since been scrapped.

For more on Metro: Last Light, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

got the free key without any probs .. i think most problems were for guys who created a facebook page for the offer.. however if you have a longstanding facebook account you should be fine

nvidia should do well out of this when guys realise their gpu wont run the game,and THQ should do well with last light sales ...

            thanks nvidia and THQ

I guess there's nothing I can do then, right?... right?!

So is there a particular reason that he keeps knocking the visuals in the review?  It's obvious he played the console version.  I play my copy on my computer and I'd say it's one of the best looking games I've ever seen.  Not THE best, but certainly one of the very best.

 

Whatever.

Too bad I already own this game.  I always enjoy getting free stuff just because.

So they are prepared to give away as many as a million or more? I didn't see any sort of limit on how many codes they are giving away. If they truly are going to give away as many as they have to, then major kudos to them. Too bad I don't give a shit about facebook. I also wasn't too interested in this game, but I think I have some respect for the devs.

These guys really know how to promote a game!  This is awesome, with both this and the humble bundle.  Great way to get the word out about their upcoming game.  At this point they don't have much to lose by pretty much giving away this game, but they have plenty to gain by getting more people interested/emotionally invested in the sequel.

All i can say is if you do not have this game do it!  this is an fantastic tale and has an alternate ending.

 

replay value is there as well

Not surprised, considering its general value is at about 0 now because of the Humble Bundle. Not that humble bundles are a bad thing, but yeah.

What a great idea for promotional audiences! Never played it, but I'd have to say this is pretty clever.

Sucks to have paid $50 for this two years back, now.

Good to be a shareholder of THQ.

Just played an hour of it. Not too bad. Could be more polished thought - when i shoot i can't see the targets from behind the blasts XD Also guns lack punch but as i said it's pretty solid.

Just got this through the Humble THQ Bundle. I've gotta say, I'm loving THQ lately. Wasn't much of a fan before but I feel like they've had phenomenal marketing/PR lately that I've connected with. It's too bad more large publishers aren't following their example.

Are you 17 or older? I think you can only access the page if you are 17+.

 @Dasim64 My only gripes with the game is the shortage of military grade rounds and the length of the campaign.  I ended up hoarding a bunch of the rounds, then the game ended.  I could have used some of those during the tougher parts, but I thought I needed to save up.  When you look at the map of the subway between levels, it looks like there are still tons of areas to go through.  I wish the game were longer.

 @Soleride 

well, with Steam the game will always be linked to your account, so if in a far future you buy a Pc or if they add Steam-play you can always play the game, even if you let it sit unplayed for years! I'd get the game if I were you.

 @tsunami2311 Open Steam. Then the Games tab and under that click Activate Product on Steam.. then enter the code.

Hmm that came out a tad more aggressive than I intended. I just hope I wont find my access restricted just because Im a EU resident.

 @Zonno same idea here! WTF I paid alot of money on it and now its free?!

 @Ratatoskr321  Yeah they've made some smart moves.  Not many people played Metro 2033, but selling/giving it for cheap increases awareness of it and makes people more aware for the sequel to have better success.  Plus it increases consumer appreciation for the company.  THQ seems to be paving the way for future success.  Maybe they will weather the storm and be on stable ground in a couple years?

 You won't get any argument out of me there. I was also disappointed by the map and how a lot of it was not in the game at all. But really that's just how good the game was. I didn't want it to end. I wanted to see more of that world.

 

I had the same issue with the ammo. I was holding on to it to purchase something late in the game that would be really nice. Unfortunately I didn't realize the last shop was the last shop and I never spent any of it. In my second and third play throughs I just shot it.
