With Microsoft’s Xbox Media Briefing at E3 2017 all about showcasing the power of the Xbox One X, they made the brilliant decision to start the show off by debuting the visually-stunning Metro: Exodus.
Starting off where Metro: Last Light left off, Artyom is back with the goal of boarding a train to escape Moscow. Unlike previous darker Metro games, Exodus will spend more time above ground and feature more dynamic seasons throughout Artyom’s one-year journey across a post-apocalyptic Russia.
As shown in the first look at vibrant new gameplay, said journey won’t be easy and will be filled with terrifying encounters with monsters both big and small. But monsters aren’t the only hazards in the new game’s semi-open-world, and just as with previous Metro games, features such as the gas mask and lighter are making their return in addition to a new map system that immerses the player without ever needing to pause the action.
The developers at 4A Games have been putting out some of the best-looking first-person shooters on PC, so clearly players not on PC are going to want to play the game on the new beefed up Xbox One X and PS4 Pro versions of consoles.
Metro: Exodus is set for release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in 2018.
