After much hoo-ha in the weeks leading up to the game’s launch, mostly regarding its platform availability on PC, Metro Exodus has finally launched in South Africa.
At a small event open to media and public, hosted by Apex Interactive at Icons in Kramerville, Johannesburg, guests were treated to a light breakfast, some chat among friends, a prize giving and, most importantly, to test out the game on the various platforms.
Having spent some hands-on time with Metro Exodus in the main presentation room, I was happily entertained by the game, maintaining the suspense and horrifying build-up as the previous games in the franchise, even while venturing out into a semi open-world environment where you encounter more terrifying beasts, as well as a separate human encampments.
Metro Exodus puts the player in the shoes of Artyom. This time, instead of having to survive the dangers in the underground Metro, he is forced to flee his home and head out into the wasteland along with a small group of survivors.
The game’s narrative takes place over the span of one year as Artyom and his comrades are faced with all the dangers the changing seasons bring with them, whether it be cold, blistering heat or dangerous creatures.
