Metro 2033 Free for THQ Facebook Fans

THQ is giving away copies of Metro 2033 to users who like the company’s page on Facebook.

The social media marketing campaign is letting Facebook users claim a copy of Metro 2033 for PC via a free Steam code once the THQ Facebook page is liked and the THQ Facebook app is installed to the users account.

Users can follow the link provided on THQ’s Facebook page or type in the phrase “Metro free” into the Facebook search box to find the page containing instructions on the free giveaway. Gamers must click on “reveal code” and sign their life away by agreeing to the terms that will pop up. The instructions on the page direct players taking advantage of the free deal to download the client but the game can also be downloaded by typing the code directly into Steam.

PC requirements for Metro 2033 can be viewed on the same page as the instructions.

THQ is continuing the promotion through Dec. 16 or until supplies run out. It is hard to believe that an internet download could be in limited supply but anyone who wants to take advantage of this deal is encouraged to do so quickly.

The publisher recently offered Metro 2033 at a discount price as part of a package of games in the Humble THQ Bundle. The game originally released in March 2010.

Metro 2033 is a post-apocalyptic first-person shooter set in the metro system of Moscow. The game, developed by 4A Games, was based on the Metro 2033 novel by Dmitry Glukhovsky.

The marketing campaign is an obvious way to get gamers interested in the upcoming sequel titled Metro: Last Light. The sequel, originally known as Metro 2034, is set to release in March 2013 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC. Glukhovsky followed up his Metro 2033 novel with Metro 2034 but the upcoming video game has no similarities to the novel, hence the name change.
