The Metro games are set in an alternate timeline where most of humanity died dued to nuclear war in 2013. The survivors in Russia huddle and hide in the metro system, trying to keep on going even as mutant beasts and different factions try to regain control. As Artyom, players will traverse the metro and the irradiated wastes in search of the tiniest hope for humanity. The remastered versions of the game include both Survival and Spartan modes, which make the game more survival-horror or more action-oriented, respectively.
