X-bit Labs has taken the latest AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards for a ride in Metro 2033, a new post-apocalyptic 3D shooter. You can check it out over here.
The game is set in Moscow, 2033. The fire of the worldwide nuclear war started by China quickly embraced the entire planet and consumed all major cities, the hearts of civilization. The civil defense systems reacted quickly and effectively, Moscow residents evacuating underground into the intricate network of the Moscow subway system. (As a matter of fact, this feature has indeed been implemented in the Moscow subway since the Cold War times. Under the threat of a nuclear attack, the stations and tunnels can serve as bomb shelters with filtering and ventilation utilities, hermetic gates, etc. Of course, the Moscow subway is inferior to the famous Vaults from Fallout in terms of comfort and security, but people being evacuated wouldn’t care much about comfort anyway, we guess. And as opposed to Fallout, no inhuman government-sanctioned experiments over the saved people are supposed to be carried out there. Although, who knows?
