Metro 2033 is a survival horror first-person shooter by Ukraine developer 4A Games. The game is based on the novel of the same name by popular Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky and was published on the XBOX360 and PC by THQ.

Players take control of Artyom living in a post-apocalyptic world in the year 2033 fighting for survival against mutants and hostile humans.

Metro 2033 Special Edition was exclusive to EB Games in Australia. The Special Edition is distinguishable by its Premium Embossed Special Edition slip case.

The Metro 2033 game enclosed inside is the standard edition with the inclusion of a download code voucher for a unique in-game Heavy Automatic Shotgun and four Artwork Postcards by Russian Painter Anton Grechk, specially commissioned to create a series of artwork from the Metro 2033 universe.

The Artwork Postcards depicts dark themes in the fictitious world of Metro 2033 and comes in its own plastic sleeve.

The Heavy Automatic Shotgun is the single most powerful non-explosive weapon in the game in terms of concentrated damage. Only available with the Metro 2033 Special Edition (in Australia), it adds an extra element of high powered gameplay. The gun could also be obtained as a pre-order bonus from selected retailers in other countries.

Metro 2033 Special Edition is still available for purchase at EB Game stores in Australia if you search for it. Probably not the most value for money Special Edition out there in terms of bang for your buck.
