Deep Silver and 4A Games have revealed the details of all the downloadable content that will make up the Metro Exodus Expansion Pass.
Given that we enjoyed Metro Exodus quite a bit, saying that the game “provides what Metro fans love about the series and so much more”, we’re excited to share the info for the game’s expansion pass.
Firstly, there will be two major pieces of story-driven DLC for the game, following brand new stories from the world of Metro. Instead of Artyom, players will see through the eyes of a brand-new character and of one of the Spartan Rangers, the Aurora’s only American, Sam. Both of these will be available as part of the expansion pass and will also be available for purchase separately.
A quick heads up for the rest of this article: if you have not yet completed the Metro Exodus campaign, the following contains spoilers — you’ve been warned.
Coming in summer 2019, the first story players will follow, The Two Colonels, is that of Colonel Khlebnikov, just below the surface, under the dead city of Novosibirsk, as he makes his way home to his son, Kirill, for New Year’s Eve. Sounds rather nice, right?
Well, all is not well with the people here: the slime is further consuming the tunnels, mutant attacks appear to be on the rise, and the precious ‘green stuff’ that protects the people from radiation poisoning is running low. So that’s bad, really bad. In order to secure the survival of the people, those in charge may need to take drastic measures.
Following the journey and experiences of Khlebnikov during the last days of life in Novosibirsk, players can expect the classic story-driven gameplay of the Metro series in this new linear chapter, complete with a brand new weapon, the deadly flame-thrower.
The second piece of DLC, Sam’s Story, coming to players in early 2020, is the brand new sandbox survival level based on Vladivostok. Sam, a U.S. marine at the Moscow embassy before the bombs were dropped, had dreamed about returning to his homeland in hopes of finding his family alive.
Since the world of Metro Exodus is rather, well, terrifying and deadly — where death is inevitable, Sam thought it’d be impossible to achieve his family-reuniting dream. However, when the Spartans discovered that Moscow was not the only city left alive after the war, Sam decides to act fast and goes out on an adventure all the way from Aurora to the U.S. to make his dream come true. To complete his journey, Sam will discover that he needs every tactic he has learned so far to survive, as his surroundings prove to be far trickier than expected.
That’s all the details we have for now, but once we find out more (and get a nice trailer or two), we’ll be sure to share everything with you all.
Metro Exodus is out now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via the Epic Games Store.
