Because everything in gaming must come with a trailer, 4A Games and Deep Silver have released a new trailer for Metro Exodus that announces the opening of pre-orders for the game. The trailer also goes into detail on some of the pre-order bonuses and various different editions of the game, but we don't see a ton of gameplay in this one because it's mostly focused on the physical details.
The star of the show is the game's Aurora Edition, which will come with a limited edition steelbook case, an art book, an outer metal case to cover your steelbook in even more metal in true Metro style, as well as an expansion pass for the game. This is the first mention of a season pass for Metro Exodus, which means we now know that DLC content will be coming for the game post launch. If you're located out of the United States, the Aurora Edition is not currently available but should be up for pre-order soon.
The trailer also announces that we'll be getting a new trailer for the game next week on August 20th, just ahead of its appearance at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. Because that just makes sense, doesn't it?
Metro Exodus is due out early next year on February 22 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. You can check out the pre-order bonuses in the announcement trailer below and make sure to check back next Monday for the Gamescom gameplay trailer.
