Metro Exodus for PC, PS4 and XONE is a post-apocalyptic first-person shooter and a part of the Metro game series. Just like the series’ previous installments, Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, it was developed by 4A Games.

Plot

The game takes us to a post-apocalytic world where civilization was destroyed by a world-wide nuclear war. Once again we play as Artyom who, along with a group of survivors, has to leave the tunnels of the Moscow subway and go east through the devastated world in search of a new home. This time, campaign takes place during a whole year, allowing us to see the post-nuclear war world during different seasons.

Mechanics

Metro Exodus for PC, PS4 and XONE is an evolution of ideas and solutions from the two previous games. As usual, we get a first-person shooter where we will focus ond exploration, combat, and sneaking. This time, however, most of the story campaign takes place on the surface, on big, open maps that give us more freedom than the areas from the previous Metro games.

More sandbox-like gameplay is not the only change we can see here. To move between the locations we will use Aurora, a revamped steam railway engine. Dynamic weather and the day/night cycle were also implemented.

The plot in Metro Exodus is non-linear to some extent. Our decisions and actions influence who will survive the journey, and who will die along the way.

Technical Aspects

Metro games are knowm for their stunning visuals, and it can also be said about Metro Exodus for PC, PS4 and XONE. The game has one of the best looking visuals out there. Its highly detailed world is even more impressive if we consider how much bigger the locations are now when compared to the series’ previous installments.
