E3: Metro Exodus gameplay

E3: Metro Exodus gameplay

Metro Exodus was one of the rare really impressive titles graphically for this Microsoft press conference. Here it is in good quality straight from the publisher.
Update: If you want to see the same gameplay sequence in high quality 4K (but 30 fps), it's now available!

I totally forgot about 4a games and metro. It looks a little like faked fps gameplay but i trust the team that its gonna be awesome

Thanks for this trailer in high quality.

I really liked the first 2 games, and if this is semi-open world, it might be really great. Reminds me of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games, which are really good once you get past the rough edges.

This will give me all the excuse I need to finally read the novels - including 2034, when it releases it - and replay the 2 first games' Redux versions.

They never said it was gameplay. They said it was in-engine footage. So, it could be faked gameplay.

It doesn't really matter anyway, Metro games are always gorgeous

Wow, that looks stunning!! Along with Anthem, best of show so far!

The concept still holds true, regardless. I'm just commenting on the idea that they're trying to do something more ambitious. A lot of people who liked Metro kept asking the developers to make semi or full open world.

Which for Metro, I don't have a problem with. There's actually very few open world FPS games, so this could be great. Plus, it could give Far Cry a run for its money - at least critically, if it turns out to be a great game.

Metro is very storydriven so i hope its semi open world

Same. Just wider areas is enough. No need to be full open world. But the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games did open world right, even though the maps weren't very big.

When did Dostoevsky say that? I'm sure he'd approve of grossly exaggerated and hypothetical video game scenarios relating to literary art.

When did Dostoevsky say that?
Totally without hope one cannot live.
To live without hope is to cease to live.
Hell is hopelessness.

It is no accident that above the entrance to Dante's hell is the inscription:

"Leave behind all hope, you who enter here."

- Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821-1881)

Probably from "The House of the Dead" (Dostoyevsky's memoirs about his time in Siberian prison).

PS. He also said: "Beauty will save the world". :)

Faked gameplay, but looked nice as usual. Sadly i didn't think much of the last 2. They just felt like worse versions of stalker. And i didn't like the systems within the game. Manually charging your flashlight, building preassure in guns by pumping them up, changing gas mask filters, having to maintain your oxygen. They all just played pretty poorly. Hopefully third time is the charm.

I have yet to finish the first one (redux) and certainly will as well as Last Light.
I'm glad they went open world with this one.

Hope it will make up for my problems running Stalker on my pc.

Those things you mentioned like changing gas filters are why i loved those games, different tastes i guess

Looks like a vertical slice to secure funding, doesn't look playable nor running on current hardware, obviously hope I'm wrong and would buy it day one if so.

Phil Spencer said it was running in-engine and at true/native 4K at the Xbox press conference. But he didn't mention if it was running on a XBX or PC.

However, Jon Bloch, Executive Producer of Metro: Exodus said in an interview with Geoff Keighley during the YouTube Live at E3 show that it was running on a PC with specs representative of Xbox One X's specs.

I transcribed the relevant questions and answers, and also put the link to just the Metro: Exodus' developer interview below:

Geoff Keighley: "What we saw here, you know, technically it was really incredible. So was that running on a PC or what was running on?"

Jon Bloch: "This is actually representative of what it will be like on Xbox One X."

Geoff Keighley: "The same GPU, and sort of on a devkit or is this a PC of the same scope?"

Jon Bloch: "It was captured on a PC of the same kind of... spec. Our engine was built from the ground up to be cross-platform. And to take full advantage of every platform that it's released on. So regardless of the platform, it will be the best possible experience that it can be on those platforms. We're not like porting from one platform to another or anything like that and then you end up losing fidelity or something. No, it's gonna take full advantage of every platform."

Still, it's important to note that it was running in-engine, not in-game. The interview revealed a lot of info on the game's setting, timeline, which ending was canon - both Metro 2033 and Last Light had 2 endings each, etc.

The game is semi-open world, some areas will be more linear like in previous games, while other areas will be more open, like the one in the demo. And you will travel through the surface aboard that train also shown in the demo and will visit many different places. Sounds very cool imho.

There's also this Polygon interview with Jon Bloch as well, where talks about many details not mentioned in his interview with Geoff Keighley. Mostly story, setting and characters' details.

i feel this was likely the case with anthem too, only a way more optimistic outlook on what it will look like. pretty misleading tbh.
