Metro 2033 Redux For Linux Looks Closer To Reality

By - | Views: 14,769
Metro 2033 Redux is confirmed for Linux, but the actual release date isn't certain yet. Luckily thanks as usual to the excellent SteamDB it looks like it's coming sooner rather than later.

The official announcement of the Redux versions did note the Linux builds would come at a later date, but it may not be too far.

Metro 2033 is to me the better of the two games and much more intense than Last Light, but I imagine there's a lot of Linux gamers who haven't played the first one. For me it was played on an old games console I no longer own, so for me it's more about the updated visuals.

Anyway here's the scoop from a few minutes ago:

286693/config/oslist: linux
286693/name: Metro 2033 Redux Linux


I am very much looking forward to both this and Metro Last Light Redux to complete the updated experience on Linux. Nothing has been added to the Last Light Redux database yet, so it may only be 2033 Redux for the moment.

Official Overview
Metro 2033 Redux is the definitive version of the cult classic ‘Metro 2033’, rebuilt in the latest and greatest iteration of the 4A Engine for Next Gen. Fans of the original game will find the unique world of Metro transformed with incredible lighting, physics and dynamic weather effects. Newcomers will get the chance to experience one of the finest story-driven shooters of all time; an epic adventure combining gripping survival horror, exploration and tactical combat and stealth.

All the gameplay improvements and features from the acclaimed sequel ‘Metro: Last Light’ have been transferred to Metro 2033 Redux – superior AI, controls, animation, weapon handling and many more – to create a thrilling experience for newcomers and veterans alike. With two unique play-styles, and the legendary Ranger Mode included, Metro 2033 Redux offers hours of AAA gameplay for an incredible price. Article taken from

Iv playin it and its looks really great, some improvements over the original version and some downgrades...but in what matters its way better !

The last video they showed to compare the graphis really did not make the Redux version look good. It was so much more generic, much less grittier than the original.

I really hope this has an advanced graphics menu and not some stupid single bar.
You can't even specify the damn resolution.

They'll get my money if they give us graphics options on par or better than the Windows version.

I think I'd love this, but I don't think on my computer I'll be able to play it due to high graphics requirements (4 year old Alienware X51...).

Man I sure hope it is soon. Im very much itching to play them and I'm not so sure ill be able to wait more than a couple of weeks before I give in and load at least 2033 up on windows. Ive been a good penguin so far though. I want the stats for the games on my account to at the very least show that I installed them and played them all the way through on linux first. I know ill end up installing on win after to do some comparison shots between the two. It is my understanding that this will not be as gimped on linux as the original LL was due to the outdated ogl used in order to support mac. There will supposedly be very little if any difference in visuals between the linux and win version.

Hopefully there will be less issue for the linux launch.. looking through the forum on steam the win crowd was/is having some pretty serious issues.

Looks like 64-bit only too...

Is that a :) or :( thing ? My opinion on 32vs64 is this: unless you have an old PC, or are using a memory constrained system/very small disc or have a very good reason not to, you should be using 64bit. Unless you can grantee 100% you will never add more then 4GB before reinstalling your Linux.

Of course supporting 32bit would sill be nice though :)

Did anyone else see that the humble store version of redux already has the penguin icon and the release date is set to 29 August?

Is that a mistake? because they said it will release later this this year. Maybe it is a surprise :P

instead of that, why don't you buy it if it is good?

were you planning on playing it on an ancient atom laptop? if your distro has problems with 64bit it's time to change distros.
