Metro Exodus Release Date & Buying Guide: Prices, Bonuses

A brave new world.


Metro Exodus is now available, having released on February 15. It continues Artyom and his allies' stories after the events of Metro: Last Light. The game is out for Xbox One, PS4, and PC--with the PC version launching exclusively on the Epic Games Store.

Like its predecessors, Exodus is a single-player first-person shooter set in Russia during a post-apocalyptic future that's been ravaged by both nuclear fallout and mutant monsters. Those that survived did so by hiding in the country's metro stations. Unlike the last two games, Exodus mostly ditches the cramped, underground setting for one on Russia's surface. The game isn't completely open world, though. Instead, it's a series of connected open spaces. Survival still proves challenging in Exodus, as you'll encounter mutants and antagonistic survivors, and need to scavenge for materials to keep your weapons and equipment working.

In our Metro Exodus review, Michael Higham gave the game an 8/10, writing, "At first glance, Metro Exodus gives you that wide-open, free, and dangerous world unbound by tunnels, though the scope of its tale focuses on what drives you personally and the lengths you're willing to go to protect what matters most. The open sandboxes may not be strongest addition, but the game still embraces the sense of vulnerability and post-apocalyptic terror alongside impactful weapons used in refined combat and stealth scenarios. You may miss the mystery and intrigue of the previous games, but Exodus puts together a charismatic crew of friends and family that you'll want to follow to the ends of the earth."
