Metro Exodus is proof we’ll never get tired of the bleak underground future

New, 2 comments

Did Metro 2033 and its sequel Metro: Last Light not sate your thirst for shooting mutant animals in an eerily beautiful post-apocalyptic future? Well, developer 4A Games is releasing a new installment of the series — Metro Exodus — in 2018 for Windows and the Xbox One.

Like its predecessors, Metro Exodus is based on the series of novels from Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky, in which the last survivors of a nuclear war survive underground in subway networks. In this trailer, that requires some handy work with a knife and crossbow, before your protagonist escapes on a steam engine. We don’t know a lot about the game yet, but the trailer is cinematic and bleakly gorgeous.

Exodus isn’t 4A’s only upcoming title — it’s also working on Arktika.1, another post-apocalyptic shooter set for late 2017 release on the Oculus Rift. Truly, we’re in for a cornucopia of futuristic misery.
