2019 is here and with it comes new information about one of the year's most anticipated releases, Metro Exodus. Today Xbox shared a brand new Metro Exodus story trailer going into detail about the latest Metro game's continuation of the series' epic story. Additionally, the company revealed an Xbox One X bundle featuring the entire Metro saga.
The bundle will release alongside Metro Exodus and include all three titles from 4A Games' popular Metro series of games: Metro 2033, Metro: Last Light, and the aforementioned Metro Exodus. The bundle also includes an Xbox One X 1TB console, a controller, and 1-month trials for Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass. The bundle will retail for the standard Xbox One X retail price of $499, and it's worth mentioning that the three games will be available via download, not on-disc.
Of course, the bundle's overall value depends entirely on whether one is excited for the release of Metro Exodus but the new story trailer should help with that evaluation. Metro Exodus will pick up the story where Metro: Last Light left off in 2013, putting players in the role of Artyom as he struggles to survive in a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by nuclear war.
However, unlike previous Metro titles, rather than haunt Moscow's Metro for the whole game, Artyom will instead be making an effort to escape Russia. Metro Exodus sees the protagonist and his friends going on a cross-continent journey in pursuit of a new home. Whether there exists a land unravaged by nuclear fallout isn't known for sure, but just the opportunity is enough for Artyom to leave Moscow and its warring factions behind.
One thing's for sure - Metro Exodus appears to live up to the incredible visual standards of its predecessors. 4A Games has again set its visual expectations high and the results are clear, both in terms of the game's cinematic storytelling and gameplay. Now to wait for the game's launch, to see what the full Metro Exodus game can deliver.
Metro Exodus releases February 15 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
