Metro Exodus is a first-person shooter game with the survival-driven storyline with gore elements, set in the post-nuclear war world.
Metro Exodus, like the previous installments of the franchise, is inspired by the Metro novels written by Dmitry Glukhovsky. It is a classic offering of the FPS genre in terms of gameplay, but the storyline is quite unique.
The game was developed by 4A Games studio, which is based in Malta but has Ukrainian roots, and its publisher is Deep Silver. The previous parts of the series were Metro: 2033 and Metro: Last Night. The Metro Exodus plot starts two years after the events that unfolded in Metro: Last Night.
The story starts in 2036, a mere two years after the end of the plot of the previous installment of the series. To catch up with events that led us to the start of the Metro Exodus game, all the player needs to know is that a nuclear war destroyed the earth in 2013.
The game was announced by the 4A Games studio on June 11th 2017 during the press conference of Microsoft that took place as part of E3 2017 event. The development had started back in 2014. The Metro Exodus was worked on by studios in Malta and Kiev, Ukraine.
