As a part of Microsoft's E3 2017 press conference, 4A Games has unveiled the third entry to its survival shooter series, Metro Exodus.

The game follows a similar backdrop to previous games in the franchise, set within the remains of Russian civilization after a nuclear war. With the world inhabited by heavily mutated beasts, players must fight their way through the world and survive the harsh wasteland.

Metro Exodus is an epic, story-driven first person shooter from 4A Games that blends deadly combat and stealth with exploration and survival horror in one of the most immersive game worlds ever created. Flee the shattered ruins of dead Moscow and embark on an epic, continent-spanning journey across post-apocalyptic Russia in the greatest Metro adventure yet.

Explore the Russian wilderness in vast, non-linear levels and follow a thrilling story-line inspired by the novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky that spans an entire year through spring, summer and autumn to the depths of nuclear winter.

Metro Exodus will leverage the power of Microsoft's upcoming Xbox One X console – running at both 4K resolution, 60 frames per second (FPS) and support for high dynamic range (HDR). The game will also be receiving a Windows 10 release via the Windows Store, although "Play Anywhere" support is yet to be specified.

Microsoft has confirmed it plans to showcase more of the game over the coming week of E3 2017, as a part of its Xbox Daily show.
