Known for its gripping post-apocalyptic narrative, the series is taking a bold new step with its upcoming title, Metro Awakening. This single-player VR game is set to redefine the boundaries of immersive gaming.

Since the release of Metro Exodus in 2019, fans have eagerly awaited the next chapter in this legendary series. Insider Gaming recently revealed that Metro Awakening is not only in a playable state but also poised to offer a unique VR experience. This marks a significant shift from previous expectations of an open-world multiplayer game.

Metro Awakening promises to deliver an intense, horrifying VR experience. The game reportedly begins with a dream sequence, leading players to wake up at their base of operations. This setup is perfectly in line with the series' tradition of blending surreal elements with gritty realism.

The rumor mill has been active, with Twitter user Kurakasis hinting at the game's title and nature. While some fans might have hoped for a different direction, the prospect of a VR game in the Metro universe is intriguing and holds immense potential.


The decision to target the VR market, potentially as a PSVR 2 exclusive, is bold. The VR gaming sector is still evolving, and targeting this niche audience is a gamble. However, it could also be a visionary move, setting a new standard for narrative-driven VR experiences.

Speculation about parallel development of another Metro title adds to the excitement. While this remains unconfirmed, the possibility of experiencing the Metro universe in different formats is thrilling.
