I was invited by A4, Deep Silver and Corsair to create an official Metro Exodus theme Gaming PC Mod.


I had worked previously with Deep Silver to create their Homefront The Revolution PC Case Mod. I was told via conference call that they really enjoyed my PC case mods inspired by other games, Fantasy and Science Fiction themes.

Some of you who have followed my creations over the past decade, know that I love creating Dystopian theme builds. METRO EXODUS takes place in Post Apocalyptic Russia. After receiving the invite, my imagination was consumed with ideas. I started searching for images of vintage Russian electronic and radio equipment. I reached out to three individuals who collected and sold these parts on Ebay. They helped me in getting an authentic Russian Military transmitter dial switch and control panel lights. These elements would be part of the custom bezel on the Metro Exodus PC case mod. I really do enjoy investing hours into researching for the right visuals in my custom PC mods. I also like scavenging for unique parts, just like you do in the Metro Exodus game. I wanted this PC Case Mod to authentically reflect the world of Metro Exodus.

We scouted and found this old alley way in South Minneapolis. It was ideal setting for our post apocalyptic Metro Exodus PC case mod. In the background of the PC is exhaust stacks billowing out real smoke. The building was Flour City built in 1895 and is currently home to the Ivy Arts.

The white Corsair Crystal 570x chassis is transformed to Rustoleum "Flat Antique Nickel" finish.

The Youtube video above I created shares the differences in the five grey paints offered by Rustoleum. You can learn more about why I decided this color of grey paint was the best for my Metro Exodus 4K gaming PC build.
