So Metro Exodus is finally on steam and it is on sale for $24. I want to get Season Pass, it comes with current 2 expansions but will it include upcoming DLCs if they release it?

well, i guess i could do an overnight, but it's still 8 hours of downloading. And if im being civilized and leve half the bandwidth for other people who may want internet at night, that would double the time.

i have witcher 3 on my to-do list but it's been there for a year.

only takes up ~43GB on my HD, not that that makes a world of difference.

Got the game a couple of days ago. Downloads sure do suck on a slow connection. Took me two days on crappy dsl. Cant say I am as impressed as I expected to be with the game. I thought 2033 and last light were both superior. And somehow the controls suck on my PC, and it is pretty powerful. The framerate is good, but movement and camera control seems really sluggish.

And people said it would never see Steam and I should just bite the bullet and get Epic... Here's hoping we see Rebel Galaxy Outlaw on Steam sometime in the future.

I have mixed feelings about it. Way to much useless dialogue and interminable cutscenes, as stated earlier. Would vastly improve the game if you could simply skip them, like in W3. In order to get a good ending you also have to be very stealth oriented. That got tedious for me, but some people love it.

As for crashes, I had occasional crashes to desktop (BDOD actually), but nothing game breaking. It was quite annoying though, as the save system is horrible and one can lose a lot of progress.

I liked the game a lot, graphics are amazing, very fun game and good story. I killed a lot of bad guys, mostly mutants, and still got a good ending so it's not true that you need to do stealth at all times.
It is on sale now from GOG.com only $22 for gold edition which includes 2 expansions

Never said you had to do stealth at all times, and yes, mutants are fair game all the time. But you definitely have to be very careful who you kill. BTW, I have played through the game twice and gotten both endings, so I do have some knowledge of what you have to do to get the good ending.

Only Metro game I ever played was 2033 and god that game is equal parts interminably boring and up its own ass. I remember really stale gunplay combined with weird "forced to fail" segments that are actually cutscenes in disguise.

I keep wanting to like this series, but it keeps pushing me away with its weird "eurojank" design philosophy.

Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition will be out tomorrow. This will only run on ray tracing capable GPUs and it's looking pretty impressive

I haven't played it yet due to outdated hardware and ridiculously high GPU prices. I thought 2033 was outstanding and Last Light was an improvement in many aspects. What's wrong with Exodus?

I thought it was OK, not as good as the earlier metro games. Was overloaded with a lot of cutscenes. I also got tired of the "dont kill the wrong guy, or you will get the bad ending" mechanic. To me though, without the atmosphere of the tunnels, it just became another shooter.

The first two games had great atmosphere but janky and sometimes frustrating combat. I liked them overall though. I'll wait for the RT version of this game, seems like a nice graphics showcase.

I just finished this. Great atmosphere and characters, and it works better as a stealth game than the old ones did. Some of the cutscenes are too lengthy but I like the mix of exposition and open ended gameplay. The RT version has excellent graphics too, definitely a must play if you managed to grab a high end video card. I liked it a lot more than the earlier games.
