The Metro 2033 franchise is getting a new lease of life in 2024 with the arrival of Metro Awakening. Spearheaded by VR veterans Vertigo Games, this VR entry will be no mere port. Instead, it’ll be an original entry into the series. So let’s see where Metro Awakening fits in the timeline, shall we?
When you think of 4A Games only one franchise really comes to mind, and that’s Metro 2033. The team took the novel of the same name by Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky and built an exciting game world out of it. While Metro forms the DNA of the studio, that’s not everything they have to offer. In fact, 4A Games was an early VR adopter, one of the most high profile to say they were making a VR game. So here’s a little history of Metro developer 4A Games.
No matter the medium, whether it’s video games, books or films, we all love a good post-apocalyptic world. The Metro franchise has been entertaining gamers for almost 15 years, serving up its own grim vision of a decimated planet Earth. Originally created by Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky, Metro 2033 took place 20 years after the apocalyptic event. With Metro Awakening VR, the timeline and story shifts closer to that fateful day.
