‘Metro Exodus’ Won’t Be Open-World, But Is A Move In The Right Direction

Metro Exodus premiered at E3 earlier this week and was one of the events surprise highlights for Metro fans. Developer 4A Games’ Metro series executive producer Jon Block revealed that while the game offers “sandbox survival”, linear storytelling is still vital to the franchise.

“First and foremost we’re not moving away from the classic linear Metro gameplay,” Bloch told PCGamesN. “We still have that, but what we’re doing with this new gameplay is more like sandbox survival.”

“There’s large levels that offer a lot more freedom, they’re non-linear, but we will have a story wrapped into them,” Bloch explained. “So the story will carry through across the non-linear and linear levels.”

The Metro series always does a great job portraying its post-apocalyptic Russian setting and engaging storyline. Running in true 4K on the Xbox One X, this game is nothing short of beautiful, and truly marks a major paradigm-shift in console gaming. Metro Exodus is due for release in 2018 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Sony Starts Their Pre-E3 Press Conference Today At 6PM Pacific Time

The PlayStation 4 Pro may be getting a price cut tonight as the company digs in to go head-to-head with the new Xbox One X. Sony has had the edge since the first PS4 rolled out as far as power and graphics, so it will be interesting to see how Sony responds tonight now that it is clear that Microsoft has closed that gap, and taking gaming to a new level on consoles.

We’ll also hear more about games like Days Gone, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, and hopefully an update on The Last Of Us 2. We’re also hoping to hear more about PlayStation PS VR with possibly some new titles added to the list of compatible games.

One thing is for sure, everyone will be watching tonight to see what Sony has to offer. They are in a position they haven’t been in this current generation of console gaming, but everyone knows to never count Sony out. It will be a great show and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for tonight’s event.
