Metro Exodus is Back on Steam and at 40% Off

525,600 minutes...

Last night, perhaps when you were snuggled up under your blankets, a little miracle happened. It was in the midnight hour (ET) when Metro Exodus returned to being sold on Steam. Normally, this isn't quite the monumental occasion, but it certainly is in the case of Metro Exodus.

Despite apparently being one of 2019's top selling titles, at least according to data shared by The NPD Group, the player base is next to non-existent.
