Metro Exodus, the third sport within the survival/horror/stealth/shooter sequence and the primary to function a extra expansive open world, has been delayed. The PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC sport was initially as a consequence of launch this 12 months, but it surely’s now coming in Q1 2019, based on a press release from THQ Nordic. That works out to someday within the January-March 2019 window.
In its press launch, THQ Nordic didn’t present a rationale or rationalization for why the sport was delayed.
Like the earlier Metro video games, Exodus stars Artyom, who’s fleeing the ruins of the Moscow Metro with a band of survivors. Publisher deep Silver says the sport will probably be a “sandbox survival experience,” with gamers exploring giant, non-linear ranges in a narrative that spans a complete 12 months. For the primary time within the Metro sequence, Exodus will function an open world.
Exodus was announced during E3 2017 with a trailer that confirmed Artyom in a collapsed tunnel stuffed with skeletons. He then walked out into the open and fought a mutated rat beast. A follow-up trailer released during The Video game Awards in December 2017 confirmed much more mutated creatures and inhospitable environments (you possibly can watch it once more above).
The first Metro sport, Metro 2033, got here out in 2010. The most up-to-date entry within the sequence was 2013’s Metro: Last Light, so it has been a very long time coming for a brand new video games. The franchise was created and is developed by 4A Games in Ukraine, primarily based on the works of Russian creator Dmitry Glukhovsky.
