Metro Exodus Gamescom Trailer Shows Off Beautiful Scenery and Creepy Nighttime Terrors
Steel your nerves, because Metro Exodus has dropped its Gamescom 2018 trailer. Until now, the makers of Metro Exodus have mostly focused on hyping the game’s bigger, more open world, but as this latest trailer shows, the series’ horror elements haven’t gone anywhere.
Metro Exodus’ post-apocalyptic world gets extra dangerous once the sun goes down, and the new trailer loads on the unnerving imagery – creepy dolls, hanging corpses, and other weirdness awaits. Of course, there are also all manner of dangerous, twisted beasts lurking for you in the shadows. I really hope I don’t run into that mutant bear in the dark. Check out the trailer, below.
Looking promising! It will be interesting to see how well Metro Exodus manages to balance freedom with the scary stuff, as open-world horror games don’t always work that well. For those who haven’t been keeping up, here’s the official Metro Exodus rundown:
The year is 2036. 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. 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.
It was also revealed today that Metro Exodus will be supporting NVIDIA RTX ray tracing technology. Wccftech’s Chris Wray recently had a chance to interview the makers of the Metro series – learn more about the game’s world, weapons, and more, right here.
Metro Exodus arrives on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on February 22, 2019.
