Metro Exodus will bring players back to a post-apocalyptic Russia in 2018

Late last year, author Dmitry Glukhovsky teased that a third game in the Metro franchise was in development at 4A Games. Today, Microsoft confirmed the game will be known as Metro Exodus at their E3 Press Conference.

Players will return to the grim landscape that is post-apocalyptic Russia in Metro Exodus, but their fight for survival will take them far away from the tunnels of the Metro this time:

A quarter-century after nuclear war devastated the earth, a few thousand survivors still cling to existence beneath the ruins of Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro. They have struggled against the poisoned elements, fought mutated beasts and paranormal horrors, and suffered the flames of civil war. But now, as Artyom, you must flee the Metro and lead a band of Spartan Rangers on an incredible, continent-spanning journey across post-apocalyptic Russia in search of a new life in the East.

Metro Exodus is an epic, story-driven first person shooter from 4A Games that blends deadly combat and stealth with exploration and survival horror in one of the most immersive game worlds ever created. Explore the Russian wilderness across vast, non-linear levels and follow a thrilling story-line that spans an entire year through spring, summer and autumn to the depths of nuclear winter.

Publisher Deep Silver later shared more about what players can expect from Metro Exodus:
