Deep Silver and 4A Games have announced the Expansion Pass content for Metro Exodus on the official Metro website. The expansion pass will feature two DLC story pack, which will take place after the main campaign, so you will need to have completed Metro Exodus to enjoy the bonus content.
The two pieces of DLC will be story-driven and follow brand new stories from the world of Metro. Instead of series protagonist Artyom, players will have the chance to see through the eyes of a brand new character in the first pack, while they'll get to play as of one of the Spartan Rangers, Sam, in the second. Both of the story packs will be available as part of the expansion pass, but will also be available for purchase separately. A price for the a la carte expansions has not been revealed just yet.
Fair warning, the descriptions of the DLC packs from Deep Silver include spoilers for the main game, so consider this your warning.
From Deep Silver:
Coming in Summer 2019, the first story that 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.
But 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. In order to secure the survival of any 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, which Colonel Miller retraces a year later, 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, claustrophobic environments, and the all-too-familiar hair-raising tension.
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 US marine at the Moscow embassy before the bombs were dropped, has long dreamed of returning to his homeland, and maybe finding his family 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.
Sam makes his way away from the Aurora in search of a way back to the USA, arriving at the remains of Vladivostok's tsunami ravaged harbours, ruined industrial buildings, and crumbling residential districts. 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.
Players will forge Sam's path through the sandbox survival landscape of Vladivostok, as they take a brand new journey across the wasteland of post-apocalyptic Russia.
Metro Exodus is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
