What is Metro Awakening?
Metro Awakening is the newest game in the Metro series, brought to life in virtual reality. Announced by Vertigo Games and Deep Silver during Sony’s State of Play Showcase, this game is a special project from Dmitry Glukhovsky, the original creator of the Metro stories. It's a prequel, which means it takes us back to the beginning, offering players a brand-new way to dive into the series. The game combines the best parts of the Metro games—like exploring a post-apocalyptic world, a strong story, and sneaky combat—but this time, it’s all in VR.
This game is a big deal because it uses VR technology to make the Metro world more real and immersive than ever before. Dmitry Glukhovsky himself is excited about bringing players to the roots of the Metro story with the added depth that VR provides. He said, “This origins story is so essential to me. It feels like returning to the foundations and roots of the series – now to the level that VR technology can bring…”
Metro Awakening is designed to pull players into its world in a whole new way. With VR, you can really feel like you’re in the spooky, ruined world of post-apocalyptic Moscow. Overall, the game promises to bring the survival challenges, the scary moments, and the beauty of a nature-reclaimed earth closer to players.
