Deep Silver, 4A Games and Metro author Dmitry Glukhovsky today unveiled the Metro Exodus Artyom Custom Edition. This extraordinary bespoke edition is so rare only ten have been made, and they are not available to purchase in any store - instead, Metro fans around the world will have the opportunity to win them via a number of planned promotions in the coming weeks.

"We worked with the renowned craftsmen at DB Props, based in the world famous Shepperton Studios to source and manufacture the ultimate collection for Metro fans," said Huw Beynon, Head of Global Brand Management at Deep Silver. "Each item is either an authentic real-world object or has been hand-made to re-create 4A's original designs. We knew we could never do Artyom's signature Nixie watch justice with a replica; so we decided to make them for real."
