Story-Driven Survival FPS ‘Metro Exodus’ Gets New Release Date a Week Earlier Than Expected

Deep Silver announced that their first-person shooter adventure Metro Exodus will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 15, 2019.

Metro Exodus is set in the year 2036 where humanity struggles to survive in a poisonous world. Players assume the role of Artyom who must flee the Metro and lead a group of Rangers across the post-apocalyptic Russia landscape to find new life in the East.

Gameplay is in the first person and has players conserve ammunition and rations in order to survive the game’s harsh world and numerous enemies.

“Our fans have been waiting patiently for Metro Exodus ever since we announced the title at E3 2017,” said Klemens Kundratitz, CEO at Deep Silver. “We had previously delayed the release date to ensure 4A Games had the time to deliver their ambitious vision for the game, but now we’re delighted to confirm that Metro Exodus has gone gold and we are able to bring the release date forward to February 15th, 2019.”

“We were absolutely thrilled to be contacted by the team at Deep Silver and 4A Games to create this Title Sequence,” said Andy Hall, creative director at Elastic. “It’s the type of project we love. Once we had been immersed in the game, we essentially lived in this frozen and terrifying landscape for many, many weeks…  we are delighted with the final film.”

Additionally, the team released a new trailer showing the title sequence from the same team who made the Game of Thrones title sequence, it shows.
