It’s nearly time for Metro Exodus, but – other than a ruddy big train – what will you be using on your journey?
Deep Silver and 4A Games have released a weapons trailer for Metro Exodus, to show off all of the options for – and give a glimpse at the customisations for – killing things in the Russian wastes.
Here it is, in full.
So here’s everything we gleaned from the trailer, in short, without any of the blurb.
- Bastard gun
- Tikhar (gas-powered rifle)
- Helsing (crossbow)
That may not be every weapon in Metro Exodus. It doesn’t feel like as many as the previous games, and certainly doesn’t include any of the melee, thrown, explosive or incendiary tools. Given the game’s customisation options, from swapping out barrels, magazines, stock and scopes, almost every weapon can be taken apart and rebuilt in numerous ways. Perhaps that’s where the real breadth of weapons will come from.
And then there’s not using weapons at all; it appears you can complete many sections of Metro Exodus – at least the human bits, less so the gibbering monsters – in non-lethal ways. You know, like Deus Ex and Fallout used to be.
Metro Exodus releases for PC, PS4 and Xbox One on February 15th, 2019.
