Kennedy and Claire Redfield’s as they trying to escape from the zombie-infested Raccoon City. The streets of Raccoon City are now plagued with the flesh-eating undead.

In Resident Evil 2, as previously said, you can either play as Leon S. Kennedy or Claire Redfield. Each has its own storyline that offers a unique look into the main story and will only come together at certain points of the progress. Facing against grotesque enemies and the general feeling of dread, Resident Evil 2 exemplifies the Survival Horror genre. The classic horror adventure is reimagined in modern TPS controls, darker atmosphere, and horrifying visuals.

With limited resources, conserving your items and ammo is key to your survival. To get out of Raccoon City alive, you need to be more strategic in fighting against your enemies rather than go in guns blazing.

Metro Exodus

Developer: 4A Games
Publisher: Deep Silver
Genre: FPS
Platforms: Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Microsoft Windows
Release Date: February 15, 2019

Metro Exodus is a story-driven first-person shooter from 4A Games that blends deadly combat and stealth with exploration and survival horror. It features a mixture of confined corridors and vast, non-linear levels, set in the Russian wilderness, tying up together to follow a storyline that spans an entire year through all four seasons. Inspired by the novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky, Metro Exodus is the first game to be set completely after the books rather than during or between them.

Like with the previous games, Dmitry Glukhovsky worked on the scenario of Exodus. It continues Artyom’s story from where Metro 2035 left off. The heavily modified steam locomotive used by the main characters is known as the Aurora. Not all of Artyom’s comrades will survive the journey, as 4A promises decisions with consequences as part of a gripping storyline with massive replayability.

Much like previous games in the Metro series, Exodus is a first-person shooter game with survival horror and stealth elements. However, it is not quite the same formula as the one we are used to, as the experience has been greatly expanded and built upon for even more variation and non-linearity. Since the core teams at both studios have experience from working on S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Shadow of Chernobyl, their idea was to combine the mostly linear gameplay of the Metro franchise with the more open-ended nature of Stalker.

Therefore Exodus consists of two large sandbox areas tied together by linear or semi-open world areas. The developers refer to this as “Sandbox Survival”, highlighting the fact that it is not a fully open world title.
