If there is a true testament to how large the world of Metro Exodus and how vast the gameplay mechanics are in the game, it has to be with this latest showing of gameplay that we have here today. I was personally able to sit down and give the game a bit of a play a few weeks ago and see just what 4A Games had for us and, while impressed, apparently I missed out a whole lot given the different variations we all could have gone. That is why it is nice for Deep Silver to have a few more of these gameplay videos cut that highlight even more of the demo shown at E3 for Metro Exodus as I know I totally missed them all.
I am sure you are feeling a bit lost based on what I have said just above. First, go back and read the earlier coverage on Metro Exodus out of E3 and then hop on back and see what was missed by myself and also left out of the gameplay video we have now. For instance, I never ran into the amazing new system of patching up the gas mask in the game that we get to see here. It will take damage and get dirty like before, but now we have the option patch it up in the field while sacrificing some visibility in the process. There is also a better explanation on the main workbench and the travel workbench we will now have in Metro Exodus.
All of that and another look at how the same mission area can be tackled in Metro Exodus as none of it went down the same way that I was able to experience. Not just in the fanciness of the gameplay we see captured here, but also in the way to go about the missions and side missions. I went a very stealth path the whole time and we can see just how things can change on the fly in this new footage. Have a look and see just how dynamic Metro Exodus may end up being when it finally launches on February 22nd.
