THQ’s atmospheric shooter Metro 2033 has only been on store shelves for a day, but the developers have turned their sights to the prospect of downloadable content for the critically acclaimed title. A new title update was released for the game this morning, which added the ability for DLC to be applied to the game whenever said DLC is released.
The developers aren’t quite ready to share the details about what the DLC might be other than it won’t be "[single-player] narrative content, ‘missing levels,’” or multiplayer. That pretty much just leaves co-op, or it could be something entirely new and awesome that I can’t think of because it’s too awesome and I haven’t had enough caffeine yet. Guess we'll find out soon enough.
The title update also adds a new Weapon Select system designed to be more Xbox 360 friendly, instead of simply being a PC control scheme mapped to a 360 controller. You can find a breakdown of the new scheme over at the game’s official Facebook page.
I’ve been looking forward to Metro 2033 for a few years now, and I can’t wait to check it out, especially since people have been using Half-Life 2 and BioShock as reference points for it.
Anyone out there playing it at the moment? What are your thoughts so far?
