4A Games has laid the finishing touches on their latest post-apocalyptic opus and have moved the game's release date up a week.

Metro Exodus has gone gold, meaning development is finalized and its ready to ship. Originally slated for a 2018 launch, the huge survival shooter was delayed to 2019 to ensure polish and a rich feature slate, and now Deep Silver has moved the release date forward a week to February 15, 2018. This is an odd decision considering both Far Cry: New Dawn and Crackdown 3 will come out the same day.

Exodus will push the series forward to new heights, says 4A Games. It'll feature a huge continent-spanning open world to explore with a day-to-night cycle, dynamic weather, and changing seasons. Although it's not an online service game, the gameworld will feature standard engagement hooks with its new crafting and scavenging system and very Red Dead Redemption 2-like gear maintenance.

Sourced directly from Dmitry Glukhovsky's Metro 2035 novel, the game continues right where Metro: Last Light left off and continues Artyom's bloody journey across a ruined world.

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.

Metro Exodus is an epic, story-driven first person shooter from 4A Games that blends deadly combat and stealth with exploration and survival horror in one of the most immersive game worlds ever created.

Explore the Russian wilderness across vast, non-linear levels and follow a thrilling story-line that spans an entire year through spring, summer and autumn to the depths of nuclear winter. Inspired by the novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky, Metro Exodus continues Artyom's story in the greatest Metro adventure yet.
