One of the highlights of The Game Awards 2017 was a tragic trailer for Metro: Exodus, the latest installment of the post-apocalyptic survival horror shooter set in Russia. It showed familiar aspects that Metro fans will recognize as mutated creatures and a very hostile and inhospitable outdoor environment.
The trailer opened with the voiceover, "There is no one out there Artyom, no one to help us, no one to listen to us". said a female voice. The recurring protagonist Artyom appears walking through a frozen wasteland. The buildings around it are destroyed and the world seems lifeless. And yet, Artyom continues to go to the wasteland, looking for something.
Of course, before the monsters appear and force Artyom underground, where he meets what appears to be another abandoned Metro. When exploring this, he finally encounters a coal train and starts it. Perhaps this train is a key part of the Exodus referred to in the title of the game.
Metro: Exodus is being developed for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. This sequel takes place in 2036, two years after Metro: Last Light, continuing with the story of the end of the previous game "Redemption". Playing once again as Artyom, this 22-year-old protagonist leaves Moscow with the Spartan Rangers on a journey eastward. The confirmed configurations include the Volga River and a locomotive called "Aurora". The timeline of the campaign's history spans one year. Anna, who is now Artyom's wife, also returns.
