Great news Metro video game enthusiasts, the next game in the series (Exodus) is complete! Not only is the post-apocalyptic first-person shooter ready to gear up for it’s next outing, the case will be in your hands earlier than expected! Here is what the official Twitter had to say—
Take your first look at the haunting title sequence set to an original score by composer Alexey Omelchuk.

Metro Exodus will release with multiple versions. The Spartan Collector’s Edition will feature a 10.5 inch Artyom (protagonist) statue with him fighting off a Watchman beast, authentic Spartan order dog tag and patches, replica postcards that are given to Artyom in the game, and special bespoke packing shaped as a radioactive barrel. It is only available to pre-order here in very small quantities. This edition is also available to purchase without the game.
The Aurora Limited Edition comes in a bespoke metal case themed after the Aurora train, the World of Metro art book, and the expansion pass. Any version of the game you pre-order will come with one of the following bonuses— a digital code for Metro 2033 for Xbox One, a dynamic theme for PS4, or a digital art book and soundtrack for PC. GameStop also is offering a Metro Exodus carabiner compass.
I personally got to see the game revealed by 4A Games at Microsoft’s E3 press conference in 2017. I pre-ordered the game right away, but the game experienced a delay earlier this year after being expected in fall 2018. I feel like the extra time for polish will be helpful, but the smarter decision of pushing a smaller title out of a crowded third quarter should bode well for Metro Exodus. February is becoming quite crowded however, so hopefully Metro gets a good shot at being a hit.
Are you excited for Metro Exodus to finally release? Does moving the game a week before Anthem help, or will it get into your Far Cry New Dawn, Crackdown 3, or Jump Force time? Show us your work in the comments below!
