Metro Exodus will feature a much larger open area with more enemies and weapons

As posted by Reddit user ‘Doit4TehLulz’, Exodus will contain much more enemies, which will be unique to the season/area the player is in. To take out these enemies, players will have plenty of weapons at their disposal, with all of the base weapons having up to 5 attachments. Weapons can be holstered to let NPC’s know that you mean no harm.

While the biggest open area in Metro: Last Light was approximately 111 meters x 200 meters, the largest open area in Exodus will be 2000 meters x 2000 meters – at least 10 to 18 times the size of the open areas in Last Light.

Players will be able to fulfill plenty of side quests which will reward them with gear or moral points. It is said that Stealth has been completely revamped in Exodus to be more challenging and realistic.
