Deep Silver and 4A Games this week announced that the next game in the Metro series, Metro Exodus, is now set to be launched during the autumn of next year and will be available to play on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC systems. The news was revealed during the annual Game Awards 2017 event and the reveal trailer named “Aurora” can be seen embedded below for a quick glimpse at what you can expect from the latest game in the series which is set in post-apocalyptic Moscow. Andriy Prokhorov, creative director and co-founder at 4A Games explained :
We were overwhelmed by our fans’ reaction to the announcement of Metro Exodus at E3. We’re sorry to have kept you waiting so long for further news, but you’ll be hearing a lot more from us in the months ahead.
The Aurora trailer offers a glimpse of post-apocalyptic Moscow – a hostile world locked in an endless nuclear winter. The desperate survivors who cling to existence beneath the surface in the ruins of the Metro have long given up hope of a life beyond Moscow… all except for one.
As Artyom, you must flee the Metro and lead a band of Spartan Rangers on an incredible, continent-spanning journey across post-apocalyptic Russia in search of a new life in the East. This thrilling story-line will span an entire calendar year through the changing seasons. Inspired by the internationally best-selling novels Metro 2033 and Metro 2035 by Dmitry Glukhovsky, Metro Exodus continues Artyom’s story in the greatest Metro adventure yet.
