For fans of the Metro series, you might like to know about 4A Games' upcoming title, where the developer is shifting away from the linear gameplay of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, and into the open arms of a more sandbox experience.




4A Games' CTO, Oles Shishkovstov, spoke with Eurogamer earlier this week, where he said: "For the game we are working on now, our designers have shifted to a more sand-box-style experience - less linear but still hugely story-driven. I will not go into details, but it requires some work from programmers as well. Also, we are improving graphics in very different aspects, like recently we did a physically-based global ambient occlusion (instead of local, like SSAO). I will not talk about PBR (physically-based rendering) here, because here we are at the stage when artists are still adapting their mentality to it."


We don't know if this will be another Metro game, or something completely new, such as new IP. For Metro fans, be sure to check out the Metro Redux from 4A Games that just launched, which features an upgraded look, and some new goodies.
