Metro Exodus makes the post-apocalypse look prettier than ever
The latest trailer for the creepy shooter proves the end of the world doesn't have to look drab.
We haven't heard a whole lot about the bleak survival-horror game Metro Exodus since its unveiling at E3 earlier this year, and as fans of the Russian first-person shooter series, that's been kind of disappointing. Thankfully, developer 4A Games has satisfied our hunger for more information on the upcoming game with a brand new trailer shown off at today's The Game Awards show.
While the trailer doesn't stray too far from the series' established setting of crumbling buildings and frost-choked streets, the game looks better than ever thanks to it leaving behind the last generation of consoles and taking full advantage of the more powerful hardware in the PS4 and Xbox One. Considering the previous Metro games already looked fantastic, it's no surprise 4A has managed to make the ruined Russian landscape look as gorgeous as it does.
Other than the impressive visuals, the new trailer also hints at more of an open-world approach to Exodus's design, with a salvaged steam train giving protagonist Artyom a new way to cross the radioactive wastes above the sanctuary of the metro.
Finally, the trailer also firmed up Metro Exodus's release date from a general 2018 to spring 2018, meaning we should see a lot more from 4A Games in the coming months.
