The announcement trailer for THQ and 4A Games' post-apocalyptic shooter Metro 2033 sets the stage for what could very well be mankind's last stand.

THQ announced the 2010 game this morning, posting this trailer on the game's official site to introduce prospective players to the setting. The game is based on Dmitry Glukhovsky's popular Eastern European novel, the synopsis for which gives you a pretty good idea of where the game is going.

The book is currently available in Russian and German, though Amazon has a listing for an English language version being released in February of next year, which should give you plenty of time to bone up before diving into post-apocalyptic Moscow.
