Metro Exodus gets back on track for two expansions

Lovely as Metro Exodus was, the extremely Russian post-apocalyptic FPS came (optionally) bundled with a sealed mystery vault of goodies in its season pass. Now, 4A games have finally revealed what's in the box, and it thankfully doesn't sound too painful. There are two expansions on the way, the first offering a more classic linear Metro story, and the second adding another open-world sandbox zone…

Humble Store starts selling keys for Epic Games Store

The Epic Games Store is no longer the only place to buy its exclusives, as the promised partnership with the Humble Store has begun. You can now buy Epic keys for Metro Exodus and Dangerous Driving from Humble, as well as pre-order Borderlands 3 (you know better than to pre-order, of course). These still run through the Epic Games Launcher on an Epic account, so…

Tickets, please: stolen Metro Exodus Steam keys cancelled

Deep Silver have cancelled a load of Metro Exodus Steam keys sold through key resellers after discovering, they say, the keys had been stolen from the factory making boxed copies. Metro Exodus switched to Epic Games Store exclusivity late enough in development that they produced physical PC copies set up for Steam, then swapped out the Steam keys for Epic keys and stuck Epic stickers…

Metro Exodus adds New Game+ and dev commentary

Experienced riders of the post-apocalyptic Russian rails in Metro Exodus can now upgrade to first class with a New Game+ mode, starting their journey afresh with all their weapons and gear from the end of the game carried over to a new save. That arrived in today's update, along with a running commentary from the conductors (developer commentary tapes) explaining more about the train's journey…

Nvidia add three more monitors to their G-Sync Compatible list, plus a new Metro Exodus RTX bundle

Nvidia have announced that another three monitors have joined their exclusive G-Sync Compatible fold today, taking the total number of adaptive sync / FreeSync monitors that can officially sort of take advantage of their swish variable refresh rate G-Sync tech to 15. And if that wasn't enough, Nvidia have also added Metro Exodus to their current RTX graphics card bundle, giving new RTX buyers another…

PSA: You should play Metro Exodus with Russian dialogue

Like everyone else and their irradiated mutant grandmother, I'll be playing Metro Exodus this weekend. I gave 4A's Stalkers-on-a-train opus a quick trial run this morning, but was immediately dismayed by a surfeit of malodorous fromage in its cod-Russian-accented English dialogue. It's not the worst I've heard by a long shot, but it's broad, broad, broad - enough so that it gently undermines the moody,…

Battlefield V and Metro Exodus receive DLSS support for Nvidia’s RTX graphics cards

It's been a long time coming, but the list of games with proper, honest-to-goodness [block id="640017" title="Nvidia RTX"] support you can actually take advantage of in-game is finally getting a teensy bit longer today, as Nvidia have announced their performance-boosting DLSS tech is coming to both Battlefield V and Metro Exodus as part of their next graphics driver update - just in time for budding…

Metro games to continue on PC despite any Epic Store boycott

The Metro series will continue and will continue on PC, publishers Deep Silver have insisted. Last week, a frustrated member of developers 4A Games had suggested on a forum that if PC peeps boycotted Metro Exodus over it becoming an Epic Games Store exclusive, then future games would skip PC. Naw, Deep Silver say, don't sweat it. They also stress that they made the decision…

New Metro Exodus trailer reminds us what all the fuss was about in the first place

While the past week has seen no end of handbags about the last-minute shape-shifting of Metro Exodus into an Epic Store exclusive, and what this means for Steam and whether it's fair to players, perhaps we have forgotten to think of the children. That is to say, the game at the heart of this controversy. I'd long had 4A's nuclear winter shooter mentally filed under…

Valve deem sudden Epic exclusivity of Metro Exodus “unfair to customers”

There were shocked faces all round when Metro Exodus was suddenly declared to be exclusive to Epic's increasingly pugnacious new store yesterday. The Fortnite bunch have been making a play to turn their store into a serious Steam rival for a few weeks now, but the much-anticipated third Metro game was a hell of a scalp to take from Valve. More startling was that it…

Metro Exodus changes track to Epic Store exclusivity

Grungy post-apocalyptic shooter Metro Exodus will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store, at least in the case of the digital release. Given that 4A's grand rail journey across a decayed, mutated Russia was due out on February 15th - just over two weeks away - it's a bit of a surprise for anyone who had already pre-ordered on Steam. Those with outstanding pre-orders will…

Metro Exodus’s story trailer features old threats in new lands

Artyom and pals may escape the sealed, haunted world of Moscow's subway tunnels in Metro Exodus, but the latest story trailer shows there's plenty of problems on the surface too. 4A Games may have switched up the environments to include some deep, dank swamps and harsh looking deserts, but the threats are familiar. There's still a range of weird mutant monsters, and it seems that…

Metro Exodus targeting 60fps 1080p for new Nvidia RTX features

Ever since the official unveiling of their [block id="640017" title="Nvidia RTX"] 2080 cards on Monday, we've heard nothing but 'ray tracing this' and 'Giga Rays that' - so much so that I can probably now recite 3573 things about their fancy pants lighting equations off by heart. What I can't say 3753 things about is their frame rate performance, mostly because Nvidia have only revealed…

Metro Exodus surfaces in February 2019

If you want to see nuclear winter again, you'll need to survive regular winter, as Metro Exodus has confirmed a release day of February 22nd, 2019. The FPS series based on the post-apocalyptic novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky is venturing even further away from the Moscow subways where all this started, this time roaming across big sandbox overground levels. And apparently fighting boat-chomping giant mutant pondlife…

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is in development, but not due until 2021

Good news for fans of uncompromisingly bleak and incomparably atmospheric Eastern European sandbox shooters: an official S.T.A.L.K.E.R. sequel is on the way, original devs GSC Game World have confirmed. The less-good news is that we’re all going to have to continue playing mods for the original games for a while yet. According to the announcement, the game isn’t due until 2021. And for those itching to pass the…
