Metro Exodus News Week — Update

Publisher Deep Silver and developer 4A Games have decided that this week will see numerous new announcements, all about first-person, exploration and survival game Metro Exodus.

UPDATE 1:

The third of this week’s Metro Exodus announcements has been revealed to be a special, hyper rare edition of the game: the Artyom Custom Edition.

The Artyom Custom Edition comes with a copy of the Metro Exodus Aurora Edition, which comes with some of it’s own cool stuff, but more importantly, it also has a whole lot of physical, real world gear. A functioning Nixie Watch, working bullet lighter modeled after Artyom’s. plus a good bit more, all packed up in a steel ammo crate. Also packed in there is a letter of authenticity signed by Metro author Dmitry Glukhovsky and Andrew “Prof” Prokhorov, creative director and co-dounder of 4A Games.

This new version of the game is so rare that there are only ten of them being made, and they actually aren’t for sale. Instead, if you want a chance at one (and it looks so cool that why wouldn’t you?), you’ll have to try to win one through promotions on the Metro website, as well as across their social media channels @MetroVideoGame. The first has already been gifted to developer 4A Games, deservedly. Good luck Metro fans!

The first announcement this week told us that Metro Exodus will include a photo mode from day one.

The Deep Silver Press Release reads:

“Photo Mode has been one of the most requested features from the Metro community,” said Jon Bloch, executive producer at 4A Games. “They’re relatively rare in first person shooters, but the team have been determined to make it work and give Metro fans the opportunity to capture their own stories from the Russian wastelands.”

For the second announcement, Deep Silver and 4A Games have released a new story trailer. This latest trailer gives a closer look into what kind of story Metro Exodus will tell, a new look at some of the supporting characters surrounding protagonist Artyom, and the different environments Artyom and the Spartan Order, aboard their mobile base, The Aurora, will have to face.

Narrated from the perspective of Anna, Artyom’s wife and the Spartan Order’s top sniper, the Metro Exodus Story Trailer explores the hostile world which awaits the crew of the Aurora as they flee the ruins of Moscow and embark on an expansive year-long journey into the unknown. Artyom always believed that there was life beyond the Metro stations of Moscow – Metro Exodus sees these hopes and dreams put to the ultimate test in the crucible of the Russian wastelands.

Be ready to step onto The Aurora and escape the Metro this February 15. If you had your calendars marked, you may want to double check them as Deep Silver announced not long ago that Metro Exodus will be releasing one week earlier than initially expected, from Feb. 22 to Feb. 15. Keep checking back through the week as this article is updated every day with whatever new information Deep Silver and 4A Games release upon us.
