When Metro Exodus first released back in 2019, it was met with an incredibly positive reception despite all of the imposed controversies over some players being upset over the Epic Games exclusivity. Even still, the title performed well and many hailed it for its perfect continuation of the Metro franchise. For those just itching for another reason to dive back into this world, the game's second expansion, Sam's Story, is not only coming soon, it also allows gamers to take on the role of a new playable character! 

According to the studio over at 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.  

"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 new story DLC will offer tons of new experiences including brand new characters to meet, a new playable character, as well as new weapons, enemies, and even more story goodness. Plus, even more of that glorious sandbox world to explore, it's a win/win for all Metro fans. 

The second Metro Exodus story DLC, Sam's Story, will be available on February 11 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Google Stadia platforms.
