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, developer 4A Games announced that the release has been pushed forward a few days to February 15, 2019. The title was originally scheduled to launch on February 22, alongside every game ever made it seems like at this point. It is a popular release date. Metro Exodus has gone gold so that triggered the new release date. However, it's more likely that the team wants to avoid competition from other titles.

You can buy the base game for $59.99, or the base game and expansion pass (Gold Edition for $84.99. Moreover, if you preorder Metro Exodus now, you'll get Metro 2033 Redux at launch too. Metro 2033 Redux is the first game in the series, remastered for Xbox One.

If you love post-apocalyptic experiences like Rage 2, then be sure to give this game a go in February. 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, the title looks stunning on the system.
