Deep Silver and 4A Games today revealed new details on downloadable content that is part of the Metro Exodus Expansion Pass.
There will be two great DLCs entirely dedicated to the history, which will follow brand-new adventures in the world of Metro. Instead of Artyom, players will have the chance to take on the role of a brand new character and one of the Spartan Rangers, the only American in the Aurora, Sam. Both will be available as part of the expansion pass, but can also be purchased separately. A brief warning: if you have not yet completed the Metro Exodus campaign, the following contains spoilers.
Coming in the summer of 2019, the first story the players will follow, The Two Colonels, stars Colonel Khlebnikov in the dead city of Novosibirsk as he makes his way back home to his son, Kirill, for New Year’s Eve.
But the people of this city are not doing well at all: the slime is further consuming the tunnels, the mutant attacks seem to have increased and the precious ‘ green substance ‘ that protects people from radiation poisoning is about to end. In order to ensure the survival of any of the people, the perpetrators could take drastic measures …
Following the journey and experiences of Khlebnikov during the last days of life in Novosibirsk, which Colonel Miller traces a year later, players can relive the classic gameplay of the Metro series in this new linear chapter, complete with a completely new weapon , the deadly flame thrower, of claustrophobic environments and of the familiar tension that characterizes the saga.
The second DLC, Sam’s Story, coming at the beginning of 2020, is the newest survival level sandbox based on Vladivostok. Sam, a US marine at the Moscow embassy before the bombing, has always dreamed of returning home and perhaps finding his family alive. The prospect seemed obviously impossible in the dark underground tunnels, but when the Spartans discovered that Moscow was not the only city left alive after the war, hope prevailed.
Sam moves away from the Aurora in search of a way back to the United States, thus arriving at the remains of the ports devastated by the Vladivostok tsunami and the industrial buildings and ruined residential districts. To complete his journey, Sam will discover that he needs every tactic he has learned so far to survive, as the environment around him proves to be much more difficult than expected. Players will help Sam on his journey through Vladivostok’s sandbox landscape, embarking on a new journey through the wastelands of post-apocalyptic Russia.
