E3 2017: Metro Exodus Lets You Explore the Post-Apocalyptic Russian Wilderness

In Gaming, News by XardasLeave a Comment

Microsoft showcased an unusually large number of games at their E3 2017 briefing ranging from indie projects to AAA titles. Despite the 40+ games featured on stage, Metro Exodus was able to easily stand out from the crowd at the conference. The next installment in the highly acclaimed Metro series looks a lot bigger than what came before and it’s pretty obvious why. Unlike its dark and often claustrophobic predecessors, Metro Exodus seems to take place mostly on the surface. The game still looks dark and atmospheric so no need to worry about that, though. However, it’s definitely good to step outside a bit and see more of post-apocalyptic Russia.

Metro Exodus continues the story established by 2033 and Last Light but takes place a couple of years later. The year is 2036 and you are in charge of helping a group of survivors flee the Metro tunnels and search for a new home towards the East. The ruins of Moscow may have seemed bad but things are about to get a lot worse as the surface is inhabited by hostile factions and mutated beasts. Trying to survive in the harsh world of Metro Exodus will not be an easy task, but it will be an enjoyable one. The game introduces an array of new weaponry to craft along with new gameplay mechanics to spice things up a bit. Even better, 4A Games promised bigger and less linear levels this time around, so we can expect a more sandbox experience.

“We are so proud to finally be able to reveal our next Metro game to the world, and would like to thank all the Metro fans for their patience,” said Andriy Prokhorov, Creative Director and co-founder at 4A Games. “Metro Exodus has been in development for three years between our Malta and Kyiv studios, and represents our most ambitious project yet.”

Metro Exodus is scheduled to launch sometime next year for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
