Metro Exodus, the next installment in the post-apocalyptic Metro series, was announced at E3 last year. The game was originally slated for a February 22nd 2019 release. Fans will be glad to know that developer 4A Games has moved up the release date by one week. Publisher Deep Silver also unveiled the title sequence of Metro Exodus, check it out:
Elastic.tv, developers of the Game of Thronestitle sequence, created the stunning video seen above. The video takes us to the wintry landscape of post-apocalypse Russia, and features a beautiful soundtrack composed by Alexey Omelchuk.
If watching the title sequence has hyped you up, you’ll be glad to know that the revised release date of Metro Exodus is February 15th, 2019. As Deep Silver announced today, players will be able to grab the game as early as the third week of February next year. While the decision of moving up release dates doesn’t always end well, it seems that, for now, Metro Exodus is on the right track.
As we saw in September, Metro Exodus will utilize Nvidia’s new ray tracing technology. The new tech combined with the advanced visuals of the game creates a stunning gameplay experience. Hopefully, the performance won’t be abysmal and the game can maintain at least 60 frames per second. The real-time ray tracing global illumination seen in Nvidia’s tech demo shows the beautiful landscape of Metro Exodus.
Another piece of good news: Metro Exodus on the Xbox One has gone gold. The game will also launch on PlayStation 4 and PC. Pre-orders for Metro Exodus are now live. Buyers can grab the Standard Edition, Gold Edition, or the Aurora Limited Edition of Metro Exodus for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the PC. Metro Exodus is out February 15th, 2019.
