Deep Silver and 4A Games today unveiled new details on downloadable content which are part of the Metro Exodus Expansion Pass.
There will be two great DLCs entirely dedicated to history, which will follow brand-new adventures of the Metro world. 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 up in the summer of 2019, the first story that players will follow, The Two Colonels whose protagonist is Colonel Khlebnikov in the dead city of Novosibirsk, as he makes his way back home to his son, Kirill, for New Year.
But the people of this city are not doing well at all: the slime is further consuming the tunnels, the attacks of the mutants seem to have increased and the precious ' green substance ' which protects people from radiation poisoning is about to end. In order to ensure the survival of any one 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 retraces 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 flamethrower, claustrophobic environments and the familiar tension that characterizes the saga.
The second DLC, Sam's Story arriving early in 2020, is the newest sandbox survival level 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 moved away from the Aurora in search of a way to return to the United States, thus arriving at the remains of ports devastated by the Vladivostok tsunami and 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 way through the sandbox landscape of Vladivostok, embarking on a new journey through the wastelands of post-apocalyptic Russia.
