Journey home to the United States in Metro Exodus’ DLC Sam’s Story


The second expansion for Metro Exodus was announced by Deep Silver and 4A Games today.

The narratively driven downloadable content expansion is titled Sam’s Story follows a second Spartan Ranger that is following in the footsteps of series  protagonist Artyom, who’s left the underground in search of a better life and a long-held hope of returning to his true home.

This is the second expansion released for Metro Exodus. The first, titled The Two Colonels, released on Aug. 20, 2019. Last week, a Nintendo Switch port for Metro Redux was announced to launch in February.

The DLC is referred to as a “sandbox survival level” that features new characters, weapons and mutant variants in a large, non-linear environment where players will forge Sam’s path on his journey back home to the United States through Vladivostok.

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.  

Sam, determined to find a way back to the U.S., departed from the Aurora to make his way through Vladivostok’s tsunami-ravaged harbours, 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.”

The Sam’s Story DLC will launch on Feb. 11, 2020, on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and Stadia.
