Freebie Info - Everything & Metro 2033 Redux [ENDED]

New week, new giveaways on the Epic store. I wonder how long they'll keep this up. Today, for you:

Everything & Metro 2033 Redux

Everything & Metro 2033 Redux will be free at Epic Games Store until October 3rd. As always, you can get the game through the link above, or straight from the Epic Games launcher. Either way, the game will be added directly to your Epic Games library.

Have a look if interested and enjoy.

The next freebie from Epic will be Minit starting October 3rd.

Thank you, Chimpzy, for all you do.

I played Metro 2033 a couple years back and generally liked it(aside from the Gas Mask shortage problem and the Guide Dang It nature of the "Good" Ending). I have no idea what the difference between the original and the redux versions are, asides from some graphical upgrades.

I've heard Everything is....interesting. And an excuse to make jokes about "Everything is FREE on Epic/Steam".

Redux is basically a remake in the Last Light engine, meaning any additions from Last Light got backported to 2033, as well as a bunch of gameplay changes to 2033 in general, changing enemy encounters (like those infuriating exploding amoeba in D6), minor level design tweaks, combining levels into single larger levels, and so on.

TLDR: they made 2033 less Eurojanky.

Well, that sounds cool.

Does it still have the problem with not being able to pick up gas mask filters until you're down to your last one? Because that irritated me a lot in the Library. I mean, that and the fact the game doesn't tell you "Hey, you can't buy filters once you leave this station", you just find out there are no filters for sale at the next station or any of the ones down the line. Because if I'd known I wouldn't have been able to buy them after that, I would have, you know, spent the bullets to stock up before I left(and it's a pretty early station too) and there's no way to backtrack once you realize this.

I'm not expecting they actually fixed that problem but being able to pick up filters would be nice.

I think you can pick them up, but I'm not sure. It's been a few years since I've played 2033 Redux. I might actually be remembering Last Light.

Bit late of a reply but well.

I don't recall 2033 ever having that issue. The game doesn't even track individual filters. Filters are managed based on 'time left' on them. When Artyom starts chuffing, you are able to switch filters if you have remaining time left. Acquiring additional filters in the environment or shops just has it add to your remaining filter time. You should be able to pick up additional filters as long as you have enough room, or rather time capacity for them. If you can't pick up a filter for whatever reason, chances are that it is just an environment prop.

Redux changed some of the missions. The one I recall most is the amoeba level. It was downright stupidly frustrating in the original, but was changed to be nowhere near as awful in redux. I also recall some moment in the original where you had to beat a tank, and that part seems missing in redux.
