THQ is handing out free copies of Metro 2033 to those who like its Facebook page. To snag your copy, while supplies last, click the link. The codes being handed out are for the Steam version.

Not anymore, they’re not. I only get a “Site could not be found” message.
Oh, there we go.

@1 Are you signed into Facebook? Did you click the huge page banner? It leads to the demo page to “like” it. I have no issues seeing it – but I have not gone beyond the “like” this page button for obvious reasons.

@1 Dude it works! I just got my code.
@Steph Thanks a lot! <3

Are you sure this is legit? The page seems extremely small and is listed as a community page. A friend is informing me that the certificate is coming up unsigned as well.

Got one. THANKS

@5 Yeah. It’s THQ’s Facebook page.
11/12/12, 3:14 pm
@7 It only has 28,000 fans and one update in a year.
Then there’s this: http://www.facebook.com/THQ
If this is legit, it’s a disorganised mess.

@8 It’s the latter: http://twitter.com/THQUK/status/278515233402793984

@9 Seems extremely odd that you would have to download an unsigned exe file to redeem a steam code.
No wonder the company is going south.
11/12/12, 3:59 pm
The code page has been removed.

@11 I’ve just got my code, but I had to use proxy server to enter the code page though.
11/12/12, 8:48 pm
Uh… I’ve just got my code, nice and clean. You don’t have to download anything. Just get the code and redeem it on Steam.

Which page is it? I basically liked every page with “THQ” and “Metro 2033″ on it and didn’t get a code of any kind…
Found the right page, but still don’t know where to get the code…

What a clusterfuck. They didn’t even give the page a proper title until a while a go.

Not on facebook and not interested in this game. Thanks, but I’ll pass.

@14 Steph gave you the link the news post. Seriously, it doesn’t get easier than that.
@15 You are f**king a**hole!

>insults and curses at people constantly
>calls other people the a-holes

@18 Dude you are being given a direct link to a free AAA game. All you have to do is follow it and click 2 buttons to get a code. It’s simple. And because you are too stupid and can’t even do that you complain. That is the definition of an a**hole.
12/12/12, 9:42 am
@19 That’s not how it was set up earlier, actually.
The Facebook page was mislabeled and had existed for over a year without being used, was requesting the download of unverified .exe files to your computer, and wasn’t even announced on the THQ Twitter page until afterwards, and even then only on the UK page. Only late last night was it even retitlted as a Metro page.
I never said there was anything wrong with the promotion itself.
