Metro Exodus Has Gone Gold, Releasing A Week Early

Deep Silver and 4A Games have announced today that the upcoming Metro Exodus, the third in the successful and critically-acclaimed Metro series of games has finally gone gold after five long years of development. Further to that, the game has been brought forward from its initial release date of February 22nd, 2019 by a week, to February 15th.

This is exciting news for fans who can’t wait to get their hands on the newest chapter in the saga, which is inspired by a series of books written by Dmitry Glukhovsky. To celebrate this milestone, Deep Silver and 4A have also released the game’s title sequence, which was created at Elastic studios in Santa Monica. Elastic are well known for crafting the title sequences of franchies like Game of Thrones and Westworld, so it’s no surprise that the sequence is quite striking and beautiful, accompanied by an original score by the game’s composer Alexey Omelchuk.

Check out the sequence in full below, and remember to pencil in that new date for February next year!

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
