Metro Exodus is further streamlined for the Xbox Adaptive Controller

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.

Metro Exodus is now available for $60. It look quite stunning on an Xbox One X, so if you're searching for a graphical showcase, you can't go wrong with this one. However, it also has some hidden features like deep Xbox Adaptive Controller support. The developer said, "While the Xbox Adaptive Controller works with all games available on Xbox One today, 4A Games has worked closely with Microsoft to further streamline the experience while playing Metro Exodus." This means that a lot of the settings have been finely-tuned to support a wide variety of accessories.

Hopefully more studios will do this so that it becomes standard. Accessibility is an important area that the gaming industry needs to do more in. This is just the first step.
