De­vel­oper 4A Games Pub­lisher Deep Sil­ver For­mat PC, PS4, Xbox One Re­lease 2018


You can nor­mally name a new game within sec­onds of the start of its E3 trailer, but Metro Ex­o­dus had us stumped. The hints were there, of course – the cam­era lin­ger­ing on an aban­doned gas mask cer­tainly sug­gested its her­itage – but it was out­doors. The Metro games take place al­most en­tirely be­low ground. We’re told to ex­pect plenty of sim­i­lar sec­tions in Metro Ex­o­dus, though it ap­pears the fo­cus this time is on the sur­face. 4A Games in­tends to mix Metro’s sig­na­ture lin­ear ac­tion with more open, ex­plorable en­vi­ron­ments as re­turn­ing pro­tag­o­nist Ar­tyom em­barks on a train jour­ney across post-apoc­a­lyp­tic Rus­sia. The demo, with its sus­pi­ciously well-timed at­tacks from per­sis­tent mu­tants, was wor­ry­ingly tightly scripted; 4A prefers the term ‘chore­ographed’, and in­sists the fi­nal game will feel more dy­namic. We’re look­ing for­ward to find­ing out.
