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, Deep Silver and 4A Games released the Metro Exodus Ranger Update for Xbox One and other platforms. This free update adds a host of new features, makes improvements across the board, and addresses numerous bugs. The major addition has to be New Game + mode. New Game + offers us a new way to experience the game by granting access to all weapons and attachments through prior playthroughs.
The other major improvement has to be the refined control scheme. The update betters sensitivity and dead zone per platform. Lastly, 4A Games has added mouse and keyboard support for Xbox One. There are plenty of other changes too that improve the overall feel of the game.
In our review, we said, "While the voice acting is patchy, the overall story is an engrossing tale of post-apocalyptic survival, wrapped in a sense of discovery and adventure aboard the Aurora train convoy. Bonding with your characters as you travel across the wastes makes Exodus feel far less lonely than the previous games, without hurting the sense of survival and isolation."

This should make a certain person on here happy for the keyboard and mouse support in a shooter. I love controllers, so I don't care. 😜 I love New Game + modes. This game is going be great by the time I'm able to play it!
All good news though i would have liked to see the option of tessellation on Xbox one X . It seems a strange omission altogether. It makes the PC version look incredible and still looks good on moderate hardware comparable to Xbox one X levels.
