The new DLC for Metro Exodus, Sam’s Story, finally has a launch date. It’s coming out on February 11th, and it puts you in the shoes of Sam, the Spartan Soldier from the USA trapped in Moscow after the tragic events that brought the world to its knees. Now, Sam is going to try and make it back home via Vladivostok. He’ll have to leave the Aurora behind, and brave the perils of the wrecked city without his usual brothers-in-arms. However, there will be new characters for you to meet, as well as weapons and other things to discover. And maybe, in the end, finally getting Sam home? You’ll have to see for yourself.
With the world slowly sliding into chaos, why not prepare yourself for the coming apocalypse by playing some more Metro Exodus? Well, that’s exactly what you’ll be able to do starting February 11th, when the Sam’s Story DLC comes out. The expansion will launch at the same time on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia. In it, you’re going to take on the role of Sam, who is desperately trying to go back to the United States. He will have to set out alone from the Aurora, and make his way through the remains of what used to be Vladivostok.
Basically, when the Spartans discover that Moscow is definitely not the last city left standing, Sam’s hope that he can return home after all has reignited. The road eventually leads him to “tsunami ravaged harbours, ruined industrial buildings, and crumbling residential districts” of Vladivostok, as they put it on the news section of the game’s website. All in all, you can look forward to an “expansive sandbox survival level,” which will feature new characters and weapons, as well as hours of gameplay as you explore the corpse of the once-proud city.
