At its E3 presentation Sunday, Microsoft took the wraps off its new game console, the Xbox One X, and showcased a number of new games that aim to make use of the machine's enhanced horsepower and graphical capabilities.
Among the first of those is “Metro Exodus,” a new title from Ukrainian developer 4A Games. It’s the latest entry in that studio’s “Metro” series of first-person shooter games, which based off the "Metro" book series from Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky.
If you’re familiar with those games or those books, the brief trailer for the newest game showcased on Sunday should fall right in line with expectations. There’s a post-apocalyptic wasteland, suffocating tunnels, big nasty mutants, and a pervading sense of dread.
Based on the brief trailer below — and the fact that it's running on a console that can play games in 4K resolution at a smooth 60 frames per second — it should also look nice and sharp:
The new game isn't exclusive to the Xbox One, though, as it'll also arrive on PC. No word has been given on a potential PlayStation 4 launch. The game is set for release sometime in 2018.
Take a look at some screenshots from the game below:
