Metro Exodus in a nutshell
Metro Exodus is the third installment in the series of FPS games developed by 4A Games. Like the previous installments, the game is based on the prose of Dmitry Glukhovsky. You play as Artyom once again. The task is to traverse post-apocalyptic Russia. You will visit Moscow, the Volga, the Caspian Sea, Taiga, Yamantau, and the Dead City.
In Metro Exodus, Artyom and his companions leave the metro tunnels of Moscow and set out to find a new home. The story of the game spans 12 months. During this time, the player will be able to see the seasons changing and their influence on the surrounding world. You can explore the world by using various vehicles, including the Aurora train.
Unlike the previous installments of the cycle, in Metro Exodus, we will be able to observe the dynamically changing weather, as well as the day and night cycle. In addition, the player's actions are supposed to affect the vitality of the companions, which means that we will be able to decide for ourselves who will survive this journey and who will not. Duke's, Damir's, and Alyosha's fates are in our hands - these choices will impact the game's ending.
Is Metro Exodus a prequel or sequel?
The story of Metro Exodus takes place in w 2036, i.e. two years after the events of Metro: Last Light. The game itself tells the story from after the book Metro: Last Light - Redemption. Similarly, to the two previous installments, the player controls Artyom. This time, the hero escapes the metro along with his companions.
Artyom, together with his companions, travels the destroyed lands using a locomotive called "Aurora." They are looking for a place where they can start a new life. The plot takes place within one year, starting with harsh winter.
Co-op - is it available?
No, Metro Exodus is a single player only game.
Open world - is it in the game?
The world of Metro Exodus is divided into several different stages. The game is not a sandbox with one huge, open map. Some of the stages are linear levels, while others are large hubs, which can be freely explored. The world in Metro Exodus changes not only in terms of seasons. In the game, you can also observe dynamic changes in the weather and the day and night cycles. After reaching the Volga, you will be able to change the time by sleeping.
Traveling between locations - how to?
Artyom traverses the destroyed lands using a locomotive called "Aurora". It will allow you to move to the other parts of the world. In Aurora, you will also find your companions and you will be able to have new interactions with the crew. Besides the Aurora, you are able to use a few different vehicles (e.g. UAZ car) available in some of the locations.
Vehicles - are they in the game?
On the larger maps available in the game, you can come across different types of vehicles. They make it easier to move around the terrain.
Remember, however, that the sound of the engine can attract mutants and other people. The majority of them are unique to a given region - in the Volga, you can use a handcar; the Caspian Sea has cars.
Artyom, and the events from previous games (spoilers)
Warning - the page below contains major spoilers from the previous game of the series, i.e. Metro Last Light.
Metro Exodus tells a story that happens after the good ending to Metro: Last Light. A good ending is as follows: Artyom is stopped from using the detonator. Shadows will appear in the area and they deal with Korbut and his mercs. However, if you have chosen the wrong ending, in which Artyom sacrifices his life and dies, it will not be taken into account. The story in Metro Exodus tells the story of the hero's adventure after leaving the Moscow Metro.
