Based on Dmitry Glukhovsky’s popular novels, Metro Exodus is intended as the third installment in a series that started back in 2010 with Metro 2033. Instead of being restricted to dank subway tunnels and brief pockets of Moscow Ruins, players will now have a much larger range of environments to explore.
4A Games’ confirmed at E3 that Metro Redux will be arriving on PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2018. It’ll also be playable in 4K on Xbox One X.
Metro Exodus is a first-person survival horror spanning across linear, claustrophobic environments and wide-open spaces to explore, as shown by the recent reveal trailer. While navigating the post-apocalyptic Russian Federation, players will have to keep themselves well-equipped and prepared for a manner of radioactive horrors.
Just like past games, a gas mask will have to be worn outside. Filters must be swapped to ensure you have a fresh air supply. If an enemy attacks you, cracks in your vision will remain as a bleak reminder of your potential fate. For dark environments, you have a torch and/or lighter on hand. These can be used to navigate obstacles and avoid potential dangers.

In terms of locations, Exodus is far more ambitious than its predecessors. Playing once again as Artyom, you’ll join the Spartan Rangers as they venture toward the Far East. Our hero will find himself traveling from Volga River to the snowy Ural Mountains. With any luck, they’ll maintain the same sense of tension and dread we adore from Metro.
Exodus will feature a dynamic day/night cycle and weather system, set to take full advantage of Microsoft’s Xbox One X. Weapons and items can be made using a multi-tiered crafting system designed to help you survive. You’ll have to do a bit of scavenging, though.
