Ahead of its February 15th launch, Deep Silver and 4A Games have revealed the all new Artyon’s Nightmare trailer for survival shooter Metro Exodus.
Artyon’s Nightmare is a prologue to the events of Metro Exodus. The Metro series takes place 25 years after a nuclear war has ravaged the Earth. The last survivors took refuge in the Moscow Metro, and now it’s time to leave their home. Metro Exodus isn’t as much of a survival title as others, but in Metro Exodus, non-linear levels allow players to explore and dig into their world. Players must scavenge for supplies and ammo to survive, while taking on human and mutant enemies.
The survivors from the Metro board the Aurora, a steam locomotive, as they begin their journey East to find a new home. Throughout the adventure, players will have to make choices that will directly affect the fate of Artyom’s comrades as they explore the Russian wilderness.
Per Press Release:
Deep Silver and 4A Games are proud to unveil the spectacular CGI animated short, Artyom’s Nightmare. In this dream-like prologue to the events of Metro Exodus, we explore Artyom’s hopes and fears of a life beyond the ruins of the Moscow Metro.
A quarter century after nuclear war devastated the Earth, a few thousand survivors took refuge in the Moscow Metro. They believed they were the last remnants of humanity – but they were wrong. Only Artyom dared to dream of a life on the surface.
It’s time to leave the ruins of Moscow and journey beyond. But dreams can quickly turn to nightmares …
Created by the master animators of Platige Image in collaboration with 4A Games, Artyom’s Nightmare brings the haunting world of Metro to life as fans have never seen it before. “Watching 4A Games take my characters off the page and onto the screen has been a privilege,” said Dmitry Glukhovsky, author of the original Metro novels. “I hope fans will enjoy this new glimpse into Artyom’s world.”
