Metro Exodus, Coming to PC FEB 15th 2019

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.

As mentioned above, at the time of writing this article the official hardware specifications haven’t been released but common sense says if you go with an i5 or Ryzen 7 CPU, RTX 2070 and 16GB of RAM in your system, you’ll be ready.

Battlefield 1

Release : 21st OCT (CUSTOMIZE)

PC game series don’t get much bigger than Battlefield with some of the highest online player counts and longest lasting communities of any online shooter, consistently, since the release of the Battlefield 1942 in 2002.

Battlefield 1 is the first of the the series to be during WW1, with the same massive environment, high player count, class based shooter mechanics the series has built it’s name on, swapping out it’s sub machine guns and attack helicopters for bayonet charges, mustard gas and biplanes.

Honorable mentions,

Forza Horizon 3 lands September 27 for racing fans, set in an open world rendition of Australia and featuring as many as 350 different vehicles and 12 player free roam multiplayer.

Gears of War 4 drops on October 11 (Windows 10 Exclusive). As long as it’s a decent port, it’s sure to a winner for fans of the franchise.

Call of Duty Infinite Warfare, aka COD in space is set for release on November 4th, with zero-G lasers and grappling guns as Call of Duty’s answer to Battlefield’s step back to the 1910’s.

Dishonored 2, (November 11th) a sequel to the critically acclaimed first release back in 2012 drops the old hero Corvo along with the new female playable character Emily in a whole new city, this time loosely modeled after Spain and the south of France.

Watch Dogs 2, (November 15th). The original had soo much promise but fell short in a lot of ways, with middling reviews across the board. Lets hope Ubisoft can build upon what made the original unique while ironing out the bugs and addressing criticisms of the first game at the same time.
