Metro Exodus trades frozen cities for lush forests in new footage

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.

At Gamescom 2018, Inside Xbox managed to show an extended look at the beta. Unlike the frozen wastelands of the first game, this footage showcases a rather lush environment. As expected, you're still fighting other humans alongside mutants. The footage appears to be recorded from the Xbox One X build.

You can buy the base game for $59.99, or the base game and expansion pass (Metro Exodus: 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 games like Fallout 4, then be sure to give this game a go on February 22, 2019. The title features Xbox One X enhancements and runs at native 4K resolution on Microsoft's new machine.
