Metro Exodus coming to Steam next week, after Epic exclusivity ends

The game that kicked off the whole Epic Games Store vs. Steam rivalry will no longer be an exclusive by next weekend.

It wasn’t the rivalry between Epic Games Store and Steam which was so upsetting last year, but how angry some fans got about the situation; to the point where they started threatening to murder indie developers who accepted Epic’s exclusivity deals.

Although Epic is still signing up new PC games as exclusives most people seem to have calmed down now, not least because it’s been a year since some of the earlier signings were made and with the timed exclusivity period over they’re available on Steam as well.

That’s already happened with the likes of Ashen and Hades, and now Metro Exodus is coming to Steam on Saturday, 15 February.

Metro Exodus was the first really big-name game to be signed up by Epic and caught much of the initial blast of anger from fans who were… forced to buy it from a different store than they were used to.

All the fuss probably helped the game though, especially after people started giving it very positive reviews on Steam, even though it wasn’t available there – and because Epic Games Store doesn’t have user reviews.

Store wars nonsense aside, Metro Exodus is actually a very good game and fully deserving of the right kind of attention.

The release is also just in time for the Sam’s Story DLC, which comes out on Tuesday, 11 February for all formats. There’s also a Switch version of the game due for release on 28 February.
