So far, the recent Dishonored and Deus Ex entries have yet to receive a new main entry anytime soon. Alternatively, the Metro series will receive a new installment sometime in 2018. Due to a variety of reasons, Metro Exodus could be a great alternative for Dishonored and Deus Ex fans.
Stealth and Action
Metro protagonist Artyom fights both humans and radioactive beasts in order to see his goals in the Metro series. The Metro series is set in a post-apocalyptic Russia after a nuclear winter occurs. Players will follow the Artyom’s quest to deliver an important message to all surviving humans and gets caught up with politics and other life-threatening events. As of Metro Exodus, Artyom seems to be on a quest to find a new home.
Metro features a stealth gameplay where players must carefully interact with actual light sources to remain hidden from enemy sight. Both Dishonored and Deus Ex fans know what it’s like to have freedom in approaching each scenario. However, Metro Exodus lacks RPG elements and flashy powers for evasive maneuvers.
Metro Exodus So Far
The upcoming Metro entry is confirmed to be an open world game. In a sense, its use of open world areas is similar to Dishonored and Deus Ex.
“There’s large levels that offer a lot more freedom, they’re non-linear, but we will have a story wrapped into them,” executed producer Jon Bloch told PCGamesN. “So the story will carry through across the non-linear and linear levels.”
Dishonored and Deus Ex Right Now
Currently, the Dishonored and Deus Ex series doesn’t look too hot after their recent releases. Dishonored 2 and Deus Ex Mankind Divided are still great games but had bad launch day sales. It might take some time until their developers pick up the series again.
So far, the Dishonored series will launch its standalone “Death of the Outsider” expansion which will feature Billie Lurk as the main protagonist. Potentially the Dishonored series might be looking to conclude itself soon as they’re about to kill a central character off the story. Meanwhile, Deus Ex’s Mankind Divided entry didn’t have much bite as it ended with an abrupt cliffhanger. Additionally, Eidos is busy developing other things for Square Enix, like the Avengers game. Due to this, Deus Ex might be benched for a while.
Dishonored and Deus Ex fans could look forward to the Metro series’ development while their game is still on hold for its next main entry. However, Metro is yet another niche survival game series that doesn’t get new entries fast. Like waiting for a guard to pass, waiting is crucial for the developments of these three titles.
