At E3, Metro Exodus received a lot of attention, and since then, there has been an official statement released regarding information surrounding 4A Games latest entry into the Metro series.
The game is on course for a release date of 22nd Februrary 2019, having been held back from its late 2018 release date. No doubt that 4A felt that Metro Exodus could do with more time to undergo more polish and other bits and pieces to ensure that us gamers receive the full package and experience the very best that they can offer.
The year is 2036.
A quarter-century after nuclear war devastated the earth, a few thousand survivors still cling to existence beneath the ruins of Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro.
They have struggled against the poisoned elements, fought mutated beasts and paranormal horrors, and suffered the flames of civil war.
But now, as Artyom, you must flee the Metro and lead a band of Spartan Rangers on an incredible, continent-spanning journey across post-apocalyptic Russia in search of a new life in the East.
Metro Exodus is an epic, story-driven first person shooter from 4A Games that blends deadly combat and stealth with exploration and survival horror in one of the most immersive game worlds ever created.
Explore the Russian wilderness across vast, non-linear levels and follow a thrilling story-line that spans an entire year through spring, summer and autumn to the depths of nuclear winter.
Inspired by the novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky, Metro Exodus continues Artyom’s story in the greatest Metro adventure yet.
So once again, we will be assuming control of protagonist Artyom in a bleak future that will be all too familiar with fans of Metro in the dark and foreboding post apocalyptic world after being devastated by nuclear war. It's not just Bethesda that can offer us a dim view of the world either, and Metro Exodus will do just that for us.
Personally, I am a huge fan of both Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light and have been following developments for quite some time now, and Metro Exodus looks to be shaping up into one of the best games we will get our hands on. The game will be running in glorious 4K for all of those lucky enough to have an impressive set up available.
