Prepare to don your gas mask and step into the eerie world of the Metro once again, but this time, it's in virtual reality! Deep Silver and Vertigo Games have just unveiled their latest creation at State of Play, and it's called Metro: Awakening. Get ready to embark on a heart-pounding VR adventure set in the haunting tunnels of the Metro, where danger lurks around every corner and mutants leap right at you. And let me tell you, experiencing that in VR takes horror to a whole new level!
The trailer for Metro: Awakening sets the stage with a solemn memorial in the depths of the metro tunnels. But soon, you find yourself skulking through the abandoned train, with an enemy lurking just down the hall. As you slide on your gas mask and check your Geiger counter, the tension ramps up. It's a mix of action, stealth, and classic Metro horror that will keep you on the edge of your seat. And trust me, having mutants jump at you in VR is a nightmare-inducing experience—prepare to scream!
While Awakening is not a direct sequel, it takes us back in time to 2028, a period not too far in our own future. You'll step into the armless gloves of Serdar, a doctor on a harrowing mission to find his missing wife amidst the mind-bending tunnels of the Metro. As for the fate of Artyom after the events of Exodus, well, that remains a mystery. So get ready to explore the Metro once again, with its rich narrative and immersive survival elements.
One of the standout features of Metro: Awakening is its dedication to realism in VR. You'll have to reload your weapons manually, scavenge for bullets, and truly immerse yourself in the survival elements of the game. It's not just a virtual experience—it's a visceral one. Every gunshot, every desperate search for ammunition, and every encounter with a mutant will feel uncomfortably real. The Metro has never been closer, and it's ready to consume you.
Interestingly, Awakening is developed by Vertigo Games, while the previous Metro games were created by 4A Games. This suggests that there may still be another Metro game in the works, waiting to be announced. The Metro universe continues to expand, offering fans new and thrilling experiences that push the boundaries of virtual reality.
So, gear up, fellow survivors, because Metro: Awakening is coming for you in 2024. Get ready to navigate the treacherous tunnels, face unimaginable horrors, and uncover the secrets that lie within the Metro's depths. This VR-exclusive adventure will transport you to a world where fear is palpable, survival is paramount, and every decision could mean the difference between life and death. Brace yourself for Metro: Awakening, the ultimate terror in virtual reality.
