E3 2018: Metro Exodus Gets New Action-Packed Trailer

Players at the Microsoft conference got a fresh look at the war-torn post-apocalyptic world of Metro Exodus.


The era of gritty, action-packed shooter titles isn't set to end any time soon, especially considering the huge response to the all-new Metro Exodus trailer showed off during Microsoft's pre-E3 2018 presentation.

The trailer gives more deep looks into the game, including loads of grim and scenic vistas set around post-apocalyptic Moscow. In particular, the new trailer also allows players to catch brief glimpses of several demonic-looking monsters, plus get an early look at the game's modular weapons system.

As far as we know, developer 4A Games is still aiming to get Metro Exodus out to fans sometime in the first quarter of 2019. Until we hear more news on that front, players can find additional information on the game by heading over to the official Metro Exodus website.

      Looks great. Weird to play as Artyom again. His story wrapped up in last light

        Metro 2035 (book) continued it from there. And Exodus looks to jump off from the end of that book. I like how they acknowledge each other

          The funny thing about Metro 2035 (just finished reading the trilogy) is there’s not one single damn monster in the entire book. A lot of breast-beating, ashes-on-head teeth-grinding, internecine faction infighting, despair, betrayal of one’s own principles, loss of hope. It’s a tough, exhausting read, that makes one thoroughly sick of humanity. This third novel is even more of a relentlessly scathing parable of the Stalinist era, with none of the fantastical sci-fi elements or Russian graveyard humor of the first 2033 novel in particular. This Exodus trailer was all shooting, with only a brief flash of faction ranting. The game’s American non-voting bro-culture buyers will have no patience for philosophical monologues, and I don’t expect the deft touch, wonder, and even religious yearnings of Roadside Picnic and the Stalker movie and game franchise to reappear in Exodus. Metro 2033 the game succeeded with its slow pace, atmosphere, and melancholy voice-over musings, but Last Light was disappointing — despite some ok set-piece battles — and Judging by this trailer I’m expecting even less from Exodus.
