Metro Exodus Artyom Custom Edition is Extremely Limited But Very Enticing
Metro Exodus Artyom Custom Edition is an awesome package for series fans, but only 10 of them are being made.
Metro Exodus is one of the most notable games launching on February 15, a date poised to be crowded with tons of interesting titles like Jump Force, Crackdown 3, and Far Cry New Dawn. While I’m sure most die-hard fans already have the game pre-ordered, 4A Games and Deep Silver have just unveiled the extremely limited Metro Exodus Artyom Custom Edition which contains some special items that longtime Metro fans will be sure to recognize and love.
As I mentioned, Metro Exodus Artyom Custom Edition is extremely limited, with only 10 of them being manufactured. The contents of the package will all be housed inside a steel ammo crate and will all resemble and work like items from the Metro series.
Metro Exodus Artyom Custom Edition will include a functional Nixie watch, a working gas mask with a filter, a Spartan Dog tag that will be tagged with the owner’s name, a leather map case and a map detailing Artyom’s in-game journey, a bullet lighter made out of an actual decommissioned shell, a certificate of authenticity signed by Metro 2033′s author and 4A Games’ Andrew ‘Prof’ Prokhorov.
Of course, the package will also include a copy of Metro Exodus Aurora Limited Edition so you can actually play the game. If you are a big fan of Metro, real working versions of all those items should certainly make Metro Exodus Arytom Custom Edition enticing to you.
Deep Silver’s Head of Global Brand Management Huw Beynon made it clear in his own statement that authenticity was very important when crafting Metro Exodus Artyom Custom Edition:
“We worked with the renowned craftsmen at DB Props, based in the world-famous Shepperton Studios to source and manufacture the ultimate collection for Metro fans. Each item is either an authentic real-world object or has been hand-made to re-create 4A’s original designs. We knew we could never do Artyom’s signature Nixie watch justice with a replica; so we decided to make them for real.”
The package’s contents were also thoroughly detailed by Dmitry Glukhovsky, author of the Metro series of books the games are based on, in a new video. So, how can you obtain Metro Exodus Artyom Custom Edition? It won’t be available to directly purchase; instead, the developers will be giving them away via “a number of planned promotions” across social media between now and the game’s official launch.
You can check out the video where Dmitry Glukhovsky details the Artyom Custom Edition below. Metro Exodus will launch for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on February 15 after having been moved up from its initial February 22 release date. If you just prefer getting the base game, Metro Exodus is still available for pre-order on Amazon.
