Metro Exodus isn't necessarily a horror game in the sense that it doesn't feature ghostly elements. However, it doesn't mean that the game cannot scare the hell out of you. Metro Exodus is a sequel to the popular Metro: Last Light. Exodus is set in a post-apocalyptic Moscow infested by mutants that are endangering the lives of surviving humans. As protagonist Artyom, you're responsible for saving your people and finding a habitable land for them.
