Metro has been a successful brand both in it’s original book form to the finely crafted video game adaption of Metro 2033. Both forms of medium have had subsequent sequels that built on the world Dmitry Glukhovsky has created. The premise follows a number of survivors of a nuclear apocalypse, who have to venture to the Metro tunnels of Russia in order to survive and rebuild society. A number of factions form with their own view of the world and are both friendly and hostile in nature.
The previous games saw you venturing to the surface in rare occasions, which brings it’s own dangers of mutated creatures and radiation filled locations. Metro Exodus looks to expand on the world, bringing you across Russia over the space of a year. You will experience the four seasons, battle wild factions and take on the harsh nuclear ridden world of Russia. Traversal happens by locomotive or by exploring linear style and new open-world areas on foot. Scavenge for items, craft supplies, find new weapons and survive in first-person.
