Metro Exodus is a first-person shooter game with survival horror and stealth elements.

The player wields an arsenal of hand-made weaponry which can be customized through scavenging materials and a crafting system. The game features a mixture of linear levels and sandbox environments. It also includes a dynamic weather system, a day-night cycle, and environments that change along with the seasons as the story progresses. It will be set over the course of one whole in-game year.

After the attack on D6 in Metro: Last Light, Artyom becomes disillusioned with the constant infighting and corruption within the Metro and leaves the Spartan Order. He soon becomes obsessed with proving that other human survivors exist outside of Moscow and makes numerous dangerous expeditions to the surface, much to Anna's concern and Miller's frustration. However, on one such expedition with Anna, they witness a working train running on the surface. Before they can follow it, they are captured by Hansa soldiers, who have also captured other prisoners who reveal the come from outside of Moscow. The Hansa soldiers execute the outsiders and Artyom is shot and left for dead when he tries to intervene. Surviving the gunshot, Artyom follows the soldiers to their base to rescue Anna, and in the process inadvertently destroys a signal jammer that was blocking all communications going in and out of Moscow. Radio transmissions from all over the world begin being picked up, and Artyom and Anna realize humanity hasn't gone extinct. Yermak, a train engineer working for the Hansa, agrees to help Artyom and Anna, and the three of them escape by stealing one Hansa's trains.

As the train leaves, the Spartan Order moves in to retake it and are shocked and confused at Artyom and Anna's presence, with Anna accusing Miller of being complicit in Hansa's coverup. Knowing that Hansa will have all of them put to death for knowing the truth, Miller concludes that the Spartans' best chance of survival is to flee Moscow. Once outside the city, he reveals to the others that while many of Russia's cities were bombed, the war did not end and NATO proceeded to occupy what was left of the nation. In order to prevent more bombs from being dropped on Moscow, the Russian leadership decided to secretly jam all communications to make the outside world believe nobody had survived. They then receive a radio broadcast from Moscow Defense Command calling for survivors to rally at the "Ark" located at Mount Yamantau and Miller decides to head there, believing that the Ark is where the Russian government has rebuilt itself.

The Spartans proceed to Yamantau, battling bandits and religious fanatics in the process while also picking up additional survivors. They finally reach Yamantau, but quickly discover that the remnants of the Russian government have devolved into cannibals luring survivors in with the false promise of safety. Artyom and the Spartans manage to fight their way out and escape, but Miller's faith in Russia is shattered and everybody is left wondering what to do next. Using a map they recovered from Yamantau, they decide to travel to a satellite communication center near the Caspian Sea in the hopes of gaining access to a satellite to find habitable land to settle. At the dried up remains of the Caspian Sea, the Spartans steal much needed water and fuel from the local bandits and free their slaves while obtaining an updated satellite map.
