The few thousand survivors cling to existence beneath the ruins of
Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro.
1:07
They believed the Earth was a poisoned wasteland.

There’s only Metro, nothing else!
1:13
But they were wrong.

Metro
Exodus takes the cinematic, narrative driven gameplay of the previous
Metro games and introduces huge open environments that deliver a brand
new experience.
1:57
The core gameplay pillars that support this bold new design are combat,
2:03
exploration
2:05
and survival.
2:07
Metro
offers thrilling and varied combat, from desperate encounters with
ferocious mutants, to tactical firefights with human foes.
2:17
How you approach dealing with hostiles is up to you. Metro supports both run and gun and stealth-based gameplay.
2:25
Waiting
until night to attack a bandit encampment sounds like a good idea:
snuff out the lights and take them down silently. Or, stage a dawn
assault and go in guns blazing.
2:37
I have a present for you, here. A Tihar Rifle. Ring any bells?
2:42
Combat is underpinned by a unique arsenal of deadly, handmade weapons.
2:47
Each gun is fully customisable, allowing the player to modify damage, range, handling and accuracy by swapping out parts.
2:57
Strip any weapon for upgrades, and use those parts to switch your loadout on the fly.
3:02
That
revolver you found? Why not fix a long barrel, a shoulder stock and a
scope to it? Now you’ve got a long range weapon capable of picking
enemies off at a distance.
3:12
This system places a huge amount of tactical variety in the player’s hands.
3:18
The world of Metro Exodus has been hand-crafted to reward player exploration.
3:23
Every
location you’ll find has a story to tell. From a long forgotten nuclear
bunker, to a tiny hamlet hiding dark secrets, to an ancient church
transformed into something sinister.
3:35
You
won’t find pointless fetch quests or busy work in Metro’s vast open
levels – every objective is narrative driven, and woven seamlessly into
the main story.
3:45
We
give you a map, a compass and the freedom to think for yourselves. It's
up to you to discover the hidden stories of the wasteland.
3:57
In
Metro Exodus, survival is everything. You’ll be roaming the wilderness,
battling mutated beasts, hostile factions and the deadly environment
itself.
4:07
Artyom must hunt for resources, stripping corpses and searching interiors,
4:13
While new crafting mechanics allow you to construct the gas mask filters and med kits needed to survive.
4:19
Environmental
hazards like anomalies and toxic zones, and dynamic weather including
electrical storms, combine to create a dangerous world.
4:28
Camps and outposts allow you to rest and replenish your strength, and offer more advanced crafting options.
4:35
Dynamic
day/night cycles transform the game world. Dare you venture out in the
darkness where mutants are at their deadliest? Or wait until daylight
and risk meeting patrols of enemy factions?
4:50
Artyom’s
incredible journey is made possible by the Aurora, a gigantic steam
locomotive that acts as the player's home and base of operations. The
Aurora will be your safe haven, a place to bond with distinctive
characters or delve into the deep lore.
