Metro Exodus Will Include the Series’ First Photo Mode, NVIDIA Ansel Support on PC

The upcoming Metro Exodus looks to be a rather beautiful game (in it’s own grungy way) and developer 4A Games have announced players will able to capture the post-apocalyptic splendor with the series’ first photo mode. You don’t see photo modes in most first-person games, so this is a welcome addition. On PC Metro Exodus will also support NVIDIA’s Ansel screenshot software.

4A Games executive producer Jon Bloch had the following to say Exodus’ photo mode

“Photo Mode has been one of the most requested features from the Metro community. They’re relatively rare in 1st person shooters, but the team have been determined to make it work and give Metro fans the opportunity to capture their own stories from the Russian wastelands.”

Haven’t been keeping up with Metro Exodus? Here’s the official backstory:

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.

Metro Exodus arrives on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on February 15, 2019. Photo mode will be available on all platforms on day one.
