Deep Silver announced Metro Exodus has gone gold. That means development for the game is complete and is the physical copies are ready to be printed.

The release date for Metro Exodus has been pushed up to February 15, 2019. It will launch for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.

Here is an overview of the game:

The year is 2036.

A quarter-century after nuclear war devastated the earth, a few thousand survivors still cling to existence beneath the ruins of Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro.

They have struggled against the poisoned elements, fought mutated beasts and paranormal horrors, and suffered the flames of civil war.

But now, as Artyom, you must flee the Metro and lead a band of Spartan Rangers on an incredible, continent-spanning journey across post-apocalyptic Russia in search of a new life in the East.

Metro Exodus is an epic, story-driven first person shooter from 4A Games that blends deadly combat and stealth with exploration and survival horror in one of the most immersive game worlds ever created.

Explore the Russian wilderness across vast, non-linear levels and follow a thrilling story-line that spans an entire year through spring, summer and autumn to the depths of nuclear winter.

Inspired by the novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky, Metro Exodus continues Artyom’s story in the greatest Metro adventure yet.

Key Features:

    • Embark on an incredible journey – board the Aurora, a heavily modified steam locomotive, and join a handful of survivors as they search for a new life in the East.
    • Experience Sandbox Survival – a gripping story links together classic Metro gameplay with new huge, non-linear levels.
    • <li

>A beautiful, hostile world – discover the post-apocalyptic Russian wilderness, brought to life with stunning day / night cycles and dynamic weather.

  • Deadly combat and stealth – scavenge and craft in the field to customize your arsenal of hand-made weaponry, and engage human and mutant foes in thrilling tactical combat.
  • Your choices determine your comrades’ fate – not all your companions will survive the journey; your decisions have consequence in a gripping storyline that offers massive re-playability.
  • The ultimate in atmosphere and immersion – a flickering candle in the darkness; a ragged gasp as your gasmask frosts over; the howl of a mutant on the night wind – Metro will immerse and terrify you like no other game.

So, rather than go up against Anthem, they decide to release the same week as Dead or Alive 6, Jump Force, Far Cry New Dawn, and Crackdown 3? Ok, sounds like a mistake to me though. Hopefully MS is smart and move Crackdown 3 off of that crazy date.

I can only speak for myself, but Metro Exodus comes first for me ahead of all of those games.

I agree, that does seem like a crazy decision! February 22 originally had Anthem, Metro, Crackdown, and Days Gone releasing on it but Anthem scared the other games off and now the 15th has 5 major releases lol

I don't think either Jump Force or Dead or Alive will hurt the sales of the others too much since they're both fighters. Far Cry may be competitive enough against Metro though. I think they're both going for a similar audience. No idea about Crackdown. Is the hype for that game still alive?

Every game affects others somewhat, as there are many gamers like myself who play multiple genres of games. Far Cry is definitely a direct competitor as they are both post-apocalyptic shooters, though Metro looks better than Far Cry New Dawn for sure. For me personally that week, it is DoA 6 > Jump Force > Crackdown 3 > Metro > Far Cry.

It's not so much that the games will compete directly with each other as there are people who will want to buy at least 2 of those games, such as someone who is a fan of both anime and the Metro series. I just think it's insane that 5 big budget AAA games are releasing on the same day!
