Fans of the series probably are already keenly aware that the next installment in the critically acclaimed Metro series is only just over a month away. However there are probably a lot of you out there who might not have tried the previous games and are hungry for some proper post-apocalyptic single player action after the flop that was Fallout-76.

Based on a series of novels, the Metro world is a dark and gritty survival story of a group of Russians exiled to the metro subway tunnels in a bid to escape the radiation and wasteland horrors above. The series is best know for it’s atmosphere and is easily one of the most eerie and unnerving experiences you can find a video game.

Playing this game like a run & gun arena shooter (eg, Doom or Quake) is simply not going to work. Ammo is scarce, environments are dark and getting hit my enemies is devastating and unforgiving. While it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, this is a game that rewards stealth & patience for those with a high tolerance for the creepy and unsettling, not just shock and gore.

What you need to know,

  • Landing February 15th on Steam and PC game retailers.
  • Exodus will be the first in the series to really focus on larger scale open outdoor environments with the player traversing the wasteland between levels in an above ground train.
  • The game is staying true to it’s roots and fan base with a purely single player story driven experience. No multiplayer, no battle-royal, no paid hats, loot boxes or weapon skins.
  • The game will be among the first to have a full and proper RTX real time ray tracing integration for gamers with RTX series video cards.
  • The seasons will change as the game progresses with the story taking place over a year and within each level there are full day/night cycles.
  • Weapon customization has been expanded and optimized.
  • Official PC system hardware requirements have not yet been published but expect to need a pretty beefy high end system if you want to crank the settings up to high and take advantage of RTX. We would recommend an modern i5 CPU, a RTX2070 GPU and 16GB of DDR4 system memory.
