A new Metro Exodus trailer will apparently be playing at The Game Awards, after the game first made its debut at this year’s E3. Metro will be just one of the multiple games that will be showcased at the event alongside the award ceremony that will be taking place there.
Metro Exodus is the third game in the Metro series of video games, based on the Russian series of post-apocalyptic novels by Dmitry Glukhovsky. In the aftermath of a nuclear apocalypse and the resulting nuclear winter, humanity in the Russian capital of Moscow has been forced to seek shelter in the city’s subway system, each station turning into a city-state that’s besieged on all sides by mutants and bandits and supernatural horrors.
Metro Exodus, however, changes the setting from the dangerous subways and the hostile, poisonous surface, mainly in the fact that the air is safe. We still don’t know the plot of the game, but it will likely involve humanity leaving the metro as the world begins to recover from the apocalypse. We’ll likely find out more about the game from the new Metro Exodus trailer.
Either way, much like the Witcher games, the Metro games have been very well-received and have resulted in interest towards the books that they originated from. With the good reviews that Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light have received, hopefully Metro Exodus will end up getting a similar reception, especially if it caps off the series with a happy ending in spite of everything.
To see the new Metro Exodus trailer for yourself, just watch the Game Awards when they happen on December 7, or catch it on YouTube after the show if you can’t see it for yourself. Metro: Exodus will be releasing sometime next year, in 2018, on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
