Metro 2033 Patch Breaks Xbox Achievements

Metro 2033 Patch Breaks Xbox Achievements

Just when you thought the world of Metro 2033 couldn't get any darker, the achievements stop working.

A patch supporting the new Ranger Pack DLC for gritty, post-apocalyptic shooter Metro 2033 seems to have done something strange to the new achievements the pack brings, so that they're not being awarded when they should.

Gamers told THQ about the problem last week, but the publisher said on Metro 2033's official Twitter feed that the problem appeared to be something to do with Microsoft, rather than with the game itself. Earlier today THQ relayed a message from Microsoft, saying that if a player was having problems with the Ranger Pack, then recovering his or her gamer profile might help. Others are reporting that this doesn't really fix the issue however, and the new achievements disappear when the game starts up.

In a statement to Joystiq, THQ said that it was investigating the problem with Microsoft, and expected to have a resolution shortly, adding that it hoped to have more concrete news to share soon. Hopefully this will get resolved quickly, because while some may roll their eyes at achievements, many more derive a great deal of joy from them, and Metro 2033 is the kind of game that makes you really earn them.

They'll have it fixed.

MS don't fuck around when it comes to achievements.

There are people out there who buys games and DLC just for achievements on a regular basis.

This game is so good. I'm glad you guys are still covering little things like this about it. I hope everyone gets a chance to play it at some point. Its definitely an experience.

They're working on it.

It'll be k and we can all get back to laughing at Ulman and killing Nosalies.

Can only hope they'll fix sooner rather than later. The game seems interesting enough.

Well lets hope the do fix it..wouldn't want the achievement whores to get all riled up now would we?

Oh dear lord they better get that fixed fast. You do not mess with people's achievements. Well I know which forums not to go to for the next few weeks lol.

This is one of those games where I really wouldn't be at all bothered. I'm already on my third playthrough.

I've never heard of this game until now... Just looked it up, and I'm really, REALLY curious O_o it looks like it has a great atmosphere...

Who would have thought an article about a game's fuckup would get me intrigued? :D

Not the achievments! ANYTHING BUT THE ACHIEVMENTS! /sarcasm

This is very true, I am sure MS is gonna move quickly on it...I hope they do anyway

In all honesty, if it's just the achievements that are broke then nobody should really care.

not really true, I'm still waiting for my smash tv achievement.

At least it doesn't affect the main games Achievements. Of course MS shouldn't dawdle with sorting out the issue.

Exactly. People like me would be quite infuriated if they don't fix this anytime soon in any game. I love achievements but sometimes these things break the immersion all of the sudden. That's why I turn off the bleeping + notifactions off at some games to remain sure I am not suddenly jolted out of the experience.

You should be intrigued. It's one of the best games out there that tread the rocky road of post apocalyptic settings.

This is true, Microsoft means business when it's with achievements, which is one thing I'm happy about :-)

I feel sorry for anyone who was effected by this and hope they'll send out a quick patch that will correct the situation and read each person's game data if they deserve any achievements and award them properly if they haven't had it already.

After that, they could get the people who made HAWX to fix their Sitting Duck achievement I would be even more happy =)

Sorry to go completely off topic with the article here, but Ranger Pack DLC?
I am interest?

More or less a weapon pack, and several new modes, ranger, which reduces ammo, and makes both you and enemies more lethal and super ranger which removed HUD. At 240 points though, I'd say it's worth it.

OT: Didn't a similar thing happen with the second army of two? In that case, if you had more mutiplayer achivements then the new achivements, then you couldn't unlock them. That wasn't addressed last time I heard, which is why I like 2K so much. They at least try to address their issues ASAP

well I do hope MS and THQ fixes this problem soon. Because we all want our achievements in this game or any other game we play.

Is it on PC? Sounds nice.

This is a little... unexpected that it's funny.
Hopefully it will get fixed.

Say's Mr 70k....

OT: Yeah it will be fixed quickly.

you guys are kinda late witch this news, its been making its rounds for about a week now. and its probably not an issue with ms as they delayed the patch for the pc version because of this issue as well.

Same thing happened with the Crash Course DLC for Left 4 Dead.
The online achievements only work in system link matches for some reason.
