Metro 2033 crashes to desktop immediately after opening sometimes showing the 4A Games Sting for a moment, but then showing a "Metro 2033 has stopped responding" dialog.

This happens on my Windows 8.1 rig running:

  • AMD FX-8150 @ 4.20GHz
  • 16GB of RAM
  • 2x Nvidia GTX 660 through SLI

Things I've tried:

  • Verifying the Integrity of the Game Caching through Steam
  • Updated Nvidia Drivers

Download the latest version of the Nvidia PhysX software from their downloads page. Regardless of if you have a AMD/ATI or Nvidia card, Metro 2033 needs the PhysX package.
