Developer 4A Games along with publisher Deep Silver have officially released the Metro Exodus ‘Sam’s Story’ DLC trailer. This is the second major DLC released by Deep Silver and is available right now on all platforms. You can purchase the downloadable content individually or via the Expansion Pass.
Here is the summary of the DLC provided by Deep Silver:
Sam’s Story follows former U.S. Marine Sam, a Spartan Ranger who has worked under Colonel Miller since the nuclear war devastated Moscow, and followed Artyom in search of a world outside of the Metro. Sam had long dreamed of returning to his homeland, and perhaps even finding his father alive. The prospect seemed impossible in the darkened tunnels of the Metro, but when the Spartans discovered that Moscow was not the only city left alive after the war, holding out hope didn’t feel so foolish anymore.
The overview continues to add:
Sam, determined to find a way back to the U.S.A., departed from the Aurora to make his way through Vladivostok’s tsunami ravaged harbors, ruined industrial buildings, and crumbling residential districts. However, 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.
In this expansive “sandbox survival” level, players will experience another gripping storyline featuring new characters, weapons, and mutant variants, in a huge, non-linear environment that offers hours of gameplay.
So as the title of the DLC suggests, this is Sam’s story. Making his way back to the U.S, Sam must go through hordes of grotesque monsters and mutated creatures. The trailer for the expansion pack reminds us of the creepy and horrific environments in the first two Metro games. The Metro Exodus Sam’s Story DLC seems to be going back to the roots of the franchise.
Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light had an atmosphere of horror and dread. The post Apocalyptic world seemed ruthless and unforgiving. Darkness was prevalent in most of the locations like the metro station and abandoned ruins. Sam’s Story DLC launch trailer seems to have the same nuance as the earlier games.
Sam is seen using two unique weapons in the launch trailer. According to the Deep Silver website, one is a pistol called the Stallion and the other is a burst-fire assault rifle.
Metro Exodus is available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC.
