By Harry Shepherd @ PCGamesN

In my sojourn through the post-apocalyptic wastes of Russia in Metro Exodus, I can’t help but think of competitive cooking show Masterchef. No, Chef Ramsay isn’t holed up in a makeshift bunker of a TV studio after the knife-wielding contestants took criticism the wrong way. Rather, Metro reminds me of the philosophy of UK hosts John Torode and Greg Wallace: a simple formula must be executed to nothing less than perfection, but the ambition of a dish that involves many complex moving parts mean that certain flaws can be overlooked.

One good outcry deserves another, and recent review scores on Steam for Metro: Last Light Redux and Metro 2033 Redux are suffering at the hands of users unhappy with the announcement that the Metro Exodus will be sold exclusively through the Epic Games Store. In many past cases customers have concealed the agenda behind their review bombing, but PCGamesN notes that in this case many of these new reviews address the Epic deal directly, some including an ASCII giving Epic the bird over this. An interesting aspect of this situation is highlighted by Ars Technica, where they discuss how the lower commission taken by the Epic Games Store may lead to some games being sold there at a lower price. This is the case with Metro Exodus, which can be pre-purchased from Epic for ten dollars less than Steam was charging. Ars notes this still means more profit for the developer and publisher, as their 70% cut of Steam’s $59.99 price tag is $41.93, while 88% of Epic’s $49.99 SRP is $43.99.

metro-exodusAnd stay tuned for in-depth videos covering each unique class of weapon in the coming weeks

Deep Silver and 4A Games today revealed the Metro Exodus Weapons Trailer. Packed with brand new footage and stunning tear-downs of the iconic hand-made guns of post-apocalyptic Russia, this trailer reveals the devastating arsenal of weapons used by Artyom and his band of Spartans as they journey across Russia.

The Metro series has always been famed for its unique firearms – for Metro Exodus, 4A Games completely overhauled the weapons system, ensuring each gun was mechanically functional, and could be customised in the field allowing for hundreds of tactical permutations. Weapons now need to be cleaned and maintained to prevent overheating and jamming, adding another dimension to Metro’s immersive gameplay.

In addition to the Weapons Trailer, Deep Silver will release additional in-depth videos of the coming weeks that take a deeper dive into the four main classes – Handguns, Shotguns, Rifles and Special Weapons. These videos will show just a fraction of the possible combinations players will be able to scavenge and customise in the Russian wastelands.

And tune in to the official Metro Exodus YouTube channel tomorrow for a closer look at the Rifles class, featuring the iconic Kalash, the deadly Bulldog and Anna’s weapon of choice, the powerful Valve.
