Deep Silver and 4A Games have released Metro Exodus worldwide, which means the game has a launch trailer. In Metro Exodus, Artyom and a group of Spartan Rangers flee the Moscow Metro and embark on a continent-spanning journey across post-apocalyptic Russia. Because of course they do.
The Metro series is based on the novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky, though the stories aren't exactly similar. However, you can definitely feel the novels driving the deep narrative of the games, which is never a bad thing. Like its predecessors, Metro Exodus includes a massive single-player campaign that blends vicious combat, exploration, survival, and stealth into an atmospheric experience.
The official story description for the game reads:
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.
Metro Exodus is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. You can check out the launch trailer below.
