Metro 2033 in March, demo later

THQ has confirmed the release dates for Metro 2033, the Xbox 360 and PC bound post-apocalyptic shooter from developer A4 Games. North American stores get it on March 16, and European on March 19. An exclusive weapon and four “art card” packing Limited Edition will be available for both platforms as well, with both editions available for pre-order now. Those who manage to find one of the selected yet unspecified retailers get Metro-themed Avatar items with their pre-order as well.

A demo should be incoming too, but it won’t be available before the release.
