Metro Exodus Expansion Sam's Story Coming Next Month
Survive a treacherous trip to the USA.
Metro Exodus is getting a second expansion, and it's coming sooner than you might think. Developer 4A Games announced that the new DLC, Sam's Story, will come to PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Stadia on February 11.
According to the official site, Sam's Story is a sandbox-survival expansion, following Sam as he journeys from Vladivostok to his home in the United States. Sam hopes to find his family, and that hope was rekindled when the Spartans discovered that Moscow wasn't the only city left alive. But the trip will be treacherous--hence the survival aspect. A teaser shows a gun that has fallen into the water with the ominous tagline, "The Journey Ends."
This is the second in the two-part expansion pass, the first of which was The Two Colonels expansion released last summer. Both stories feature completely new characters. The expansion pass costs $25.
"At first glance, Metro Exodus gives you that wide-open, free, and dangerous world unbound by tunnels, though the scope of its tale focuses on what drives you personally and the lengths you're willing to go to protect what matters most," Michael Higham wrote in GameSpot's Metro Exodus review. "The open sandboxes may not be strongest addition, but the game still embraces the sense of vulnerability and post-apocalyptic terror alongside impactful weapons used in refined combat and stealth scenarios. You may miss the mystery and intrigue of the previous games, but Exodus puts together a charismatic crew of friends and family that you'll want to follow to the ends of the earth."
