Metro Exodus, the third entry in the Metro series of post-apocalyptic FPS adventures inspired by books of the same name, is quite the grand genre effort indeed. As such such with many folks now having completed the game, attention is being turned to Sam’s Story, the next dollop of Metro Exodus DLC.
UPDATE: The Metro Exodus official website has confirmed the release date for the Metro Exodus DLC Sam’s Story. You can catch the full synopsis below:
Sam’s Story follows former US 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 USA, 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.
In this expansive ‘sandbox survival’ level, players will experience another gripping story line featuring new characters, weapons and mutant variants, in a huge, non-linear environment that offers hours of gameplay.
Sam’s Story will be available to purchase on 11 February 2020 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and Stadia – links will be available from launch at https://www.metrothegame.com/buynow. It is included in the Metro Exodus Expansion Pass, which also entitles holders to the acclaimed DLC, The Two Colonels, which was released in August 2019.
Specifically, folks are interested to see just when Sam’s Story will release, and now thanks to an accidental leak on the official Metro Exodus website, now we know.

ORIGINAL STORY FOLLOWS
The leak came from an image that was accidentally uploaded onto the Metro Exodus DLC website and quickly taken down again. Luckily the eagle-eyed folks over at The GamePost managed to nab it before the image was pulled – you can see it below:
Another thing the image tells us (beyond the fact that they got the day wrong – February 11, 2020 is on a Tuesday, not a Friday) is that the time stamp is set for January 30, 2020 – indicating the date when we can expect that this latest Metro Exodus DLC will be announced.
The last Metro Exodus DLC story expansion was The Two Colonels which released later in 2019. In case you missed it when it released, you can catch the full synopsis and trailer for The Two Colonels below:
“The first Expansion for Metro Exodus, The Two Colonels, follows the story of Colonel Khlebnikov, father of Kirill, as Colonel Miller retraces his steps in the doomed station at Novosibirsk. Discover the story of the ill-fated residents and wield a brand new weapon, the flame-thrower.”
