New “Exodus SDK” Engine Unveiled For Fans To Create New Metro Exodus Content

The engine 4A Games used to build Metro Exodus is free and available now on all PC storefronts.

                                              Story Highlights

  • 4A Games have released the Exodus SDK for Metro Modding.
  • The studio says Russia’s assault has already altered the future of the series’ story.
  • Modders can’t use it for commercial purposes, share it behind a paywall, or sell anything made with it.

Exodus SDK, a software development kit for Metro Exodus and Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition, has been released, according to Metro Exodus creator 4A Games.

Players who possess a copy of any version of Metro Exodus may presently download the Exodus SDK from the Steam, Epic, and GoG shops. This is the whole engine kit used to create Metro Exodus, not simply a modification tool.

Although being in near vicinity to the conflict at home, Ukrainian game company 4A Games is continuing to work diligently on the Metro series, according to a detailed studio report published today.

The lives of the teams who have been on the front lines of Russia’s assault on Ukraine are detailed in a lengthy blog post for fans all around the world. It’s encouraging to hear from the Metro Exodus development team, but it’s obvious that the conflict negatively impacts their work and daily life in several terrible ways.

The blog post reads,

Everyone has been affected. Some of us have lost homes to bombings. Some have joined the Armed Forces to defend Ukraine. Colleagues, friends, and families have been injured. A number have lost their lives. Though, there is one thing Ukraine is not short of right now – it’s our heroes: those who protect our country at the fronts, those who help them, and those who against all odds work with passion and fierce dedication to keep our projects going and support the country’s economy.”

The next entry in the Metro Series will be greatly altered due to the ongoing conflicts between Ukraine and Russia. The studio also reassures fans that they are still working hard on their projects.

The scene editor, model editor, particle mode, terrain tool, weather editor, camera track editor, and visual script are all included in the Exodus SDK.

This implies that you may perform any action you desire without writing a single byte of code, including adding and altering any type of object in the game, making models and textures, adjusting the weather, or even changing AI functionality.

Players may even experiment with and dissect fake levels and tutorials using the game studio’s actual development tools.

It goes without saying that this kind of gift is subject to customary restrictions, such as not being allowed to utilize anything developed with Exodus SDK for profit, share it behind a paywall, or sell it.

“We’re not looking to enter the engine licensing business, this is purely something meant for the community, and we hope you get inspired to create some really wild things.”

The studio has given this gift to its consumers. At the same time, they patiently wait for their upcoming projects, which include a new Metro game, a multiplayer experience in the Metro universe, and a whole new IP, as revealed 2 years ago on the Metro 10th Anniversary.
