4A Games has revealed the next entry to the Metro saga with Metro Exodus. The new trailer has shown a bit of a switch when it comes to the survival mechanic as a gas mask is used while underground, while above ground it is discarded. It seems the world of Metro has spaces where the fallout from the war has dissipated, or never reached in the first place. There’s even a train above ground that hints at humanity returning to the surface.
UPDATE: The official press release reveals the game has moved to a more open design and will no longer be forcing you through series of tunnels.
In Metro Exodus, Artyom and a band of survivors must flee the shattered ruins of the Moscow Metro and embark on an epic, continent-spanning journey across the post-apocalyptic Russian wilderness. Explore vast, non-linear levels, lose yourself in an immersive, sandbox survival experience, and follow a thrilling story-line that spans an entire year in the greatest Metro adventure yet.
