Metro Exodus will be releasing a little earlier than previously planned. Deep Silver and 4A Games announced that the game has gone gold and will be coming on February 15, 2019–not February 22 as previously announced. Adjust your calendars accordingly.
To celebrate the announcement, the studio has put out the game’s title sequence, from the same studio that produced those sequences for the HBO shows Game of Thrones and Westworld. You can check out that very frosty video above.
“Our fans have been waiting patiently for Metro Exodus ever since we announced the title at E3 2017,” said Deep Silver CEO Klemens Kundratitz, 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, but now we’re delighted to confirm that Metro Exodus has ‘gone gold’ and we are able to bring the release date forward to the 15th February 2019.”
Metro Exodus looks to be a bigger take on the Metro concept without going open-world. “I think for Metro fans, it’s really important to make it clear that it’s not an open world game,” Huw Beynon told GameSpot. “It’s a series of levels, and you play them in linear order, and you still have traditional Metro-style levels when the game starts; the game will feel very familiar, and then at E3 we showed the first of these new huge levels, we call them sandbox survival levels. Each one of those can take several hours to complete, several days worth of in-game time, that’s where we’re going to gradually expand the horizons.”
Metro has a pricey Collector’s Edition which comes out to a whopping $235 with the game. A less expensive Limited Edition includes a season pass and art book. It’s coming for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Read more details in our pre-order guide.
