If you fancy yourself a die-hard Metro fan, or love a good collector's edition or two, Metro Exodus' super limited Artyom Edition is right up your street.
But there's a catch: developer 4A Games only made ten of them. And one of those ten will be locked away in the 4A vaults for good. So, really, there's nine. And to be one of the chosen nine, you have to win a competition - it can not be purchased (maybe off eBay later down the line). Chances are slim, but you've got to be in it to win it. I know I'll be entering (hint hint, 4A).
The limited edition bundle was revealed in an official video yesterday, starring Dmitry Glukhovsky, author of the original Metro novels that inspired 4A's post-apocalyptic video game franchise.
So what's on offer? Artyom Edition includes tons of custom Metro-inspired collectables, ranging from authentic real-world items to hand made goodies from DB Props at Shepperton Studios.
A gas mask and filter, a map of the Aurora's journey with matching leather case, Artyom's bullet lighter, a steel Spartan dog tag engraved with your name, and a certificate of authenticity signed by Glukhovsky and 4A's Andrew Prokhorov, bundled together in a huge military crate, could be yours if you win.
Oh wait, no. There's just one more, little thing: a stunning, fully functioning Nixie watch, pulled straight from the Metro universe. It's no doubt the star of the show, and would look the part in any gamer's collection, whether you're a fan of Metro not (if you're not you don't deserve it, just saying).
4A hasn't revealed when said competitions will start, but Metro Exodus launches mid-February so it can't be long off. Stay tuned to the studio and game's social media channels to find out more.
Or, you know, don't. So I can win. I've been after a new watch for some time, and the way things are going with Brexit, this survival gear could come in handy one day...
