This year in June, during E3 2017, 4A Games announced the release of the long-awaited Metro Exodus. Back then, it received a breathtaking presentation that left everyone speechless. Then, at Game Awards 2017, it came back into the spotlight but, this time, the trailer took a different approach.
The trailer brings a new take on Metro Exodus
Metro Exodus was introduced with a lot of action and brutality, making the trailer shocking. Now, 4A Games decided to switch to the psychological side, which is as disturbing as the other one, and perfectly completes the image of the post-apocalyptic game.
The trailer shows the protagonist, Artyom, wandering around in a deserted and frozen Russia. At the same time, a feminine voice narrates everything that is happening, while also expressing her fears. Whenever the main character gets out of the metro system and goes exploring, she lives with the insufferable fear that Artyom won’t come back.
The psychological approach is shocking as well
What was left of the outside world is a frozen wasteland where no one survived. The voice is telling Artyom to give up searching, as there’s nothing he can find. However, he still hasn’t lost his hope, and keeps going out every day to explore the snowy vastness. The danger is lurking outside, so the protagonist often faces hoards of zombie dogs or other threats.
The trailer leaves the watchers in suspense, as it ends as two trains clash. Artyom was aboard one of them, while the other one suddenly appears from the unknown. It’s not clear what will happen with the character, as the trailer ends right before the impact.
This is an extremely interesting approach on Metro Exodus, which must have captured the attention of all players. If you’re impatient to play the game, you’ll have to wait a little. It has been scheduled for fall next year, but there’s plenty of time until then to find out more about the game.
