Metro Exodus' Artyom Custom Edition is so fancy, only ten have been made
Developer 4A Games’ long-awaited post-apocalyptic sandbox shooter Metro Exodus is now just over a month away – and, as you’d expect, the studio’s marketing efforts are rapidly gathering speed. And now, as part of its pre-release publicity pre-amble, 4A Games has unveiled Metro Exodus’ lavish Artyom Custom Edition – it’s so fancy, in fact, that only ten have been made.
The Artyom Edition is a bit of a Metro fan’s dream, stuffed full of collectibles inspired by some of the series’ most iconic imagery – and all, 4A explains, are either authentic real-world items or have been hand-made with the help of DB Props at Shepperton Studios.
As revealed in the video above by Dmitry Glukhovsky, author of the Metro novels that inspired the games, the Artyom Edition features a gas mask and filter, a functional Bullet Lighter crafted from a decommissioned shell, a steel Spartan dog tag (engraved with the recipient’s name, natch), plus the centrepiece: a fully-functioning, hand-made Nixie Watch – all of which should be familiar to anyone that’s experienced the post-apocalyptic thrills of a Metro title previously.
