A New Perspective

Metro Exodus: Sam's Story is all set to arrive next month, just in time for the 1-year anniversary of this fantastic first-person shooter from 4A Games and Deep Silver.

If you haven't yet played Metro Exodus, you're missing out on a pretty good game. Based on Dmitry Glukhovsky's Metro 2033 novels, the game chronicles the continuing journey of a tough warrior named Artyom in post-apocalyptic Russia. After a lifetime in the Moscow Metro, Artyom and his friends make the decision to leave the city in search of new, unspoiled land.

 
 

The game has been out for a year now and the first piece of DLC (titled The Two Colonels) was released back in August of 2019. Now, Metro Exodus: Sam's Story is primed to bring a conclusion to the game's Expansion Pass.

What is Metro Exodus: Sam's Story All About?

If it's been a while since you've played the game (or if you haven't played it yet), you might not know that Sam is one of the crew members of the Aurora train that joins Artyom and his other companions on their journey Eastward. Once they conclude their journey, he decides that he wants to try and find his way back home to the United States.

Leaving the Metro had previously seemed all but impossible — the tunnels were filled with bandits and large military factions vying for power, and the surface contained countless deadly mutants. Now that everyone is living somewhere much safer, Sam feels that this is his best chance to try and make it back home.

Metro Exodus: Sam's Story will provide an "expansive 'survival sandbox' level" featuring new characters, weapons, and mutants according to a press release. It's sure to be an entertaining experience!

Steaming Ahead

With the approach of Sam's Story, it bears mentioning that we're also approaching the one-year anniversary of Metro Exodus launching on the Epic Games store. While it hasn't yet been officially announced, the odds are good that we'll be seeing the game and its DLC finally be made available on Valve's digital distribution platform.

You can look forward to Metro Exodus: Sam's Story coming to PC via the Epic Games Store, Steam (for those who had pre-order codes) PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia as part of the Expansion Pass on February 11, 2020. Where the Metro franchise goes from there is a mystery that hopefully has some nice surprises.
