Russian developer 4A Games has announced that it is working on a new game for the PC and PlayStation 3 titled Metro 2033: The Last Refuge. The game is inspired by the book Metro 2033 by Dmitriy Glukhovskiy and is set in a postapocalyptic Moscow.

By taking refuge in the makeshift bomb shelters of the Moscow subway system, thousands of human survivors were protected from the heavy radiation that killed off much of the world and spawned new species that now roam the surface.

The Last Refuge is described as a first-person shooter with role-playing elements and is scheduled for release in the fourth quarter of 2008. 4A Games claims that interacting with various political factions will be a large part of the game, and several different styles of combat will be available for players.

Metro 2033: The Last Refuge has not yet been rated or priced. For more information on the game, check out the first screenshots or head over to 4A Games' official Web site.
