Metro 2033
THQ Announces Metro 2033 DLC
Written By
View author's profile
After much dilly-dallying, THQ today announced their first piece of downloadable content for their recent survival-horror shooter, Metro 2033.

The debut DLC pack, the “Ranger Pack,” will not only add new weapons - the Heavy Automatic Shotgun, and the Volt Driver, Miller’s signature gun - and 250 achievement points, but it’ll also add the all-new “Ranger Mode” game rules for the campaign.

In what sounds bizarrely pointless, Ranger Mode reduces the amount of ammo you’ll bump into, but will increase weapon damage at the same time. That’s you as well, and not just your foes. It does however remove the HUD totally and according to THQ, it creates “the most immersive Metro 2033 experience yet.”

The Ranger Pack DLC will be available very soon for a price yet to be confirmed.

Is this game worth checking out? At least a rental?

Interesting. Might not be worth it depending on the price, though.

definitely worth a rental, great visuals and gameplay. i had to return mine so fast due to Splinter Cell coming out and never got the chance to rent it again. probably after Alan Wake.

OMG I returned this today as it was due back, looks like I will rent it again once the DLC is released lol also as a side note I really didn't expect this game to have new achievements! it just doesn't look or feel like a game that has DLC written on it?

I borrowed it and started playing through it, I didn't care for it. Then I read the last OXM and it got a 9, so did splinter cell... I guess I'm going to have to give this another chance.

Looks like i will have even more reason to check this one out, and to Comment #4... You MUST be out of your mind if you think this game (however good it may have been) is worth being referred to as best new game of this Q1 yet.

This is a pretty good game, very atmospheric. Caters to a limited audience though. Will definitely check out DLC

I had sort of given up on 100%ing this one but perhaps some new DLC will get me in the mood for more! Great game by the way, I'd say worth buying for a good price but certainly worth a rental. Sleeper hit of '10 I'd say.

Good to hear, just finished my latest playthrough and ready for some DLC. Hope they decide to make a sequel one day as well, lots of potential for another game in the series.

The game was great in my opinion, almost perfect, all it needed was more exploration, a few more guns, and some more monsters.

I enjoyed this game very much. If it had a little more polish it would be one of the best of the year. Its already an immersive story and experience, the new mode will definitely make it easier to feel like your the guy.

Wanted to try it but gameflys selection isnt the best. But with New Vegas on the Horizon and still more to do on Fallout 3 and Borderlands don't need MORE post apocalypse in my games really.

This is PERFECT. I managed to order Metro 2033 off amazon two days ago for £3.71 + p&p NEW, because of a pricing error (instead of £38.71, it was £3.71), so I've saved a ton of cash on that. Definitely enough money for the DLC too. :)

It's a good game from what I have seen so far, but it's a bit broken in places. 'Jumpy' corpses and a few glitches here and there. I'm stuck in the first 'Dead City' level and I cannot find where to go now as a door that should be open, isn't. I might have to restart from the beginning now....

@27 And they let you have it? Usually when that happens you'll end up getting an e-mail saying it was wrong and they apologise.

Also, I think this kind of DLC should just be in a patch, or free at the least. Most games already have, y'know, difficulty settings.

This game has some awesome concepts that would work better in a..well,better game. the graphics were great up close,ho hum from a distance. the hit markers were way off,and the enemy AI is a tad bit too punishing,and confusing almost. didnt finish it but from what i played i at least liked it a little.

I love the game but won't be getting the DLC, it doesn't add anything really new to the game IMO.

If you are wondering about the game. Its a lot like FEAR in the lighting and the health system, but feels at times like Quake. It even has Nazis ! What more can you want ?
