Since the original Metro 2033 arrived on our screens back in 2010, Metro games have been a staple for FPS fans across both consoles and PC. Based on the Metro novels by Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky, players attempt to survive in a post-nuclear apocalypse world. Starting out in the Moscow Metro that gives the series its name, danger can await around every corner. But the popularity of the series is as much about the storytelling as it is about the horror-survival action. Below you’ll find a complete list of the Metro games in order, as of the end of 2022.

Metro 2033 (2010)
The original game, and the one many still consider the best. An FPS predominantly set in the Moscow Metro after the holocaust, the player attempts to help protagonist Artyom save his home from mutants while also surviving the lethal radiation.
Metro: Last Light (2013)
The sequel to Metro 2033 arrived three years later, keeping to the successful horror FPS genre alongside elements of stealth and survival. You reprise your role as Artyom, again playing largely in the Mosco Metro. It introduced weapon customization, alongside the hardcore Ranger Mode.
Metro: Redux (2014)
Metro: Redux was released the year after Metro: Last Light, offering what the publisher described as the definitive versions of the first two games. They were rebuilt using the then-latest version of the 4A Engine used to make both games, with Metro 2033: Redux particularly receiving rave reviews.
Metro: Exodus (2019)
Exodus continues the story directly from the Redemption ending of Metro: Last Night. It again stuck to the tried-and-true horror shooter format but expanded the crafting system while opening the game into more sandbox-style areas, including environmental conditions, as the scope of the play area increased.
Metro: Exodus – Two Colonels (2019)
DLC content for Metro: Exodus, adding another four-or-so hours of content. Generally praised for its story elements, but less so for its cost-to-content ratio.
Metro: Exodus – Sam’s Story (2020)
More DLC, this time set in Vladivostok as Sam tries to get home to the US. It again received a mixed reaction, with the story elements brought down by a few gameplay niggles.
Note: Outside of the main series, two further games were released for mobile. Metro 2033: The Mobile Game (2012), and Metro 2033: Wars (2015).
