The next game in the Metro series was revealed on the Xbox stage. Metro Exodus takes players back to a post-apocalyptic Russia with one surprising difference. The gameplay demo showed the protagonist exploring the dark, claustrophobic tunnels of the Russian Metro system, fighting off mutants. So far, so normal.

Then the protagonist heads to the surface andĀ takes of his gas mask. Which seemed interesting, and points to some big changes in the world of Metro. He also fought off a giant, mutated bear with a crossbow.

Metro Exodus is due for release in 2018.
