Metro Exodus 'Artyom's Nightmare' trailer reveals our hero's deepest fear

Metro Exodus is a post-apocalyptic first-person shooter which has garnered a lot of interest in recent months. The game is a sequel to Metro: Last Light which was ported to Xbox One a few years ago. Years after nuclear war devastated Earth, a few survivors still cling to existence beneath the ruins of Moscow. They have struggled against the lethal elements and fought mutated beasts. Now, in Metro Exodus, they must flee the underground tunnels in search of a new life in the East.

Today, publisher Deep Silver and developer 4A Games released a new trailer called "Artyom's Nightmare." While the video doesn't feature any gameplay, it gives you some insight into the mindset of the main character. According to the companies, "In this dream-like prologue to the events of Metro Exodus, we explore Artyom's hopes and fears of a life beyond the ruins of the Moscow Metro." He fears losing his family above all else.

Metro Exodus will release on February 15, 2019 on Xbox One and other platforms. That's the same day Crackdown 3 and Far Cry: New Dawn launch. Talk about a packed release date!

If you love post-apocalyptic experiences like Rage 2, then be sure to give this game a go in roughly a week. The title features Xbox One X enhancements and runs at native 4K resolution on Microsoft's new console. From what we've seen at events like E3 2018, Metro Exodus looks stunning on the system because it's unbelievably crisp.
