Metro Exodus will be releasing later this year and the third entry of the popular series will surely include lots of new features and changes. One such feature that some fans are interested in is a potential Metro Exodus open world feature.
Executive producer Jon Bloch had the following to say about the Metro Exodus open world rumours:
“First and foremost we’re not moving away from the classic linear Metro gameplay, we still have that, but what 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, so the story will carry through across the non-linear and linear levels.”
So in summary the game will contain large explorable levels but it won’t be presented in the form of a game like GTA or Skyrim but rather Dishonored whereby each chapter of the game will take you to a new large location that can be explored rather than one large map.
The year is 2036.
A quarter-century after nuclear war devastated the earth, a few thousand survivors still cling to existence beneath the ruins of Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro.
They have struggled against the poisoned elements, fought mutated beasts and paranormal horrors, and suffered the flames of civil war.
But now, as Artyom, you must flee the Metro and lead a band of Spartan Rangers on an incredible, continent-spanning journey across post-apocalyptic Russia in search of a new life in the East.
