New gameplay and a release date has been revealed for Metro Exodus at Microsoft’s E3 2018 conference! The new trailer shows off the adventures of Artyom and a band of Spartans as they smash into the Volga region in the spring time, and the gameplay itself is taken from one entire sandbox survival area.

The Volga region of Russia encompasses the drainage basin of Europe’s largest river, The Volga, as well as dangerous bandits, a crazy religious cult, and a range of vicious mutants desperate to make Artyom their next meal, so you’re going to be spoiled for choice in terms of villains. The Eastern European plains have been re-imagined in great detail, including the flooded remains of villages and factories where life was forever changed 25 years ago – who knows what the Spartans will find?

“4A are extremely proud to be showing 4K gameplay of one of our vast open levels exclusively on the world’s biggest videogames stage” said Andriy Prokhorov, Creative Director and co-founder at 4A “We can’t wait to reveal more of Artyom’s journey in the coming months”

Metro Exodus will release for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on February 22, 2019.
