THQ asking for “patience” on Metro 2033 Achievements fix

Wednesday, 25th August 2010 08:22 GMT By Johnny Cullen


THQ’s told Joystiq it’s working on an Achievements fix for Metro 2033 after the shooter’s awards got twisted by a DLC release.

Following the addition of the Ranger Pack DLC on Xbox Live at the start of the month, the horror’s Achievements system has been borked.

However, THQ is currently determining if the problems lies in a code-related issue with the DLC or an “an error in the Marketplace process whereby the DLC was added to Xbox LIVE Marketplace before the new Achievement data was added.”

“We realize this is frustrating for those of you who have been waiting to enjoy the Ranger Pack DLC, and we ask for your patience as we try to pinpoint the exact issue and solution,” said THQ in a statement.

And there you go.

First released in March of this year, developed by 4A and based on the work of Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky, Metro 2033 is a coming of age tale set after the bomb in Moscow’s underground system.

    Some of the Achievements in this game were already pretty buggy.

    I finished up with 970G largely because the requirements for popping the last one seemed pretty random with different people popping at different places and some not at all.

    It didn’t seem worth a 2nd play through immediately after the 1st in a story driven FPS when the achievement might glitch on you.

    Still, solid game, if you haven’t played it, do, achievements aren’t the be-all, well worth playing.
