Deep Silver released a new trailer for the upcoming Metro Exodus to celebrate the gold status and a new release date. The third instalment in Metro series will hit the shelves on 15 February 2018, one week earlier than the previous date.
Metro fans will be happy to hear that Deep Silver announced a new release date for Metro Exodus which will now arrive one week earlier than expected. The post-apocalyptic shooter is dropping on 15 February, not 22 February 2018 as previously announced.
This means that Metro Exodus now shares the same release date as two other major games - Crackdown 3 and Ubisoft's recently announced Far Cry New Dawn. Shifts in the release window also means that the third instalment in Metro series will avoid EA's online shooter Anthem which is set to release on 22 February 2019.
The release date information comes along with the Gold Status announcement and a new trailer dubbed Title Sequence which gives us a sneak peek to Metro Exodus' nuclear winter. Deep Silver CEO Klemens Kundratitz spoke about the previous delay and gold status in the announcement.
"We had previously delayed the release date to ensure 4A Games had the time to deliver their ambitious vision for the game," Kundratitz said and added how happy the studio is to confirm the end of development. "Now we're delighted to confirm that Metro Exodus has 'gone gold' and we are able to bring the release date forward to the 15 February 2019," Kundratitz concluded.
Metro Exodus was originally announced at E3 2017. It's a sequel to Metro Last Light and supposedly the final game in the series. It will not feature an open world like many AAA games today as 4A Games opted for a more linear experience similar to previous Metro iterations. The game will blend combat and stealth with survival horror and exploration. It's also one of the first games to use Nvidia's latest technology - RTX Ray Tracing.
