During this Christmas season, the Epic Games Store is giving away one game a day and today it is the turn of Metro 2033 Redux, the remastered version of the famous Metro 2033 that was the graphics reference for PC for a long time. Now you can get this game for free and we will tell you everything, in addition to telling you what PC you need to make it work and be able to enjoy it in its maximum splendour.
The original Metro 2033 was released in March 2010 for Xbox 360 and PC (the version for PS3 was cancelled), and since then it has been considered the most graphically demanding game, above the also famous Crysis. At the end of August 2014, this remastered version called Redux was released, designed for new generation consoles (also for PC obviously) with improved graphics, and was considered an excellent remastering of the original game.
How to get Metro 2033 Redux for free
As on previous occasions, the game is free on the Epic Games Store platform. You just have to open the game launcher or the Epic Store website , log in with your account and make the purchase at zero cost as if you bought any other game. After that, the title will be added forever to your digital library on the platform.
As you can see in the screenshot itself that we have put above these lines, the offer is limited until today at 5:00 p.m., so if you want to get free with this excellent game you should hurry up and claim your free copy before 17:00 Spanish time.
In addition, we recommend you to be attentive because as we already warned the other day they are going to give away a free game a day every day until the end of the year, and many of these games are very interesting and of course recommended, even if it is to enlarge your digital library and being able to play them when you feel like it later.
What PC do you need to be able to play?
Despite the fact that Metro 2033 Redux is six years old, as we have said before, it was considered one of the most graphically demanding games and already at that time you needed a high-end gaming PC to be able to enjoy it at Full HD resolution and 60 FPS on average. . Really and obviously, these requirements no longer correspond to a high-end PC today and you can probably play it without problems on any moderately decent PC.
In the following table we show you the minimum and recommended requirements of the game, the first two columns being the developer’s recommendations, and the last (4K at 60 FPS) our personal recommendation in case you want to play to the fullest and with the graphic settings at full capacity.
|Minimum requirements (1080p at 30 FPS)||Recommended Requirements (1080p at 60+ FPS)||Recommended Requirements (4K @ 60 FPS)|
|Processor||Intel / AMD Dual Core||Intel / AMD Quad Core 3 GHz||AMD Ryzen 5 2600
Intel Core i5-6600K
|RAM||2 GB||4GB||8 GB|
|Graphic card||GeForce 8800GT||GeForce GTX 480||Radeon RX 590
GeForce GTX 2060
|OS||Windows 7 64 bit||Windows 7 64 bit||Windows 10 64 bit|
As you can see, you don’t need a state-of-the-art PC to enjoy the game, and in fact, even if you want to play it at 4K resolution and with everything at the top, a mid-range graphics is worth it without any problem. In our case, we can tell you that with an RTX 3070 and an ultra-wide monitor with 3440 x 1440 resolution we have an average of 180 FPS with everything at maximum, so you can imagine.
