The second DLC for Metro Exodus, Sam's Story, has been released on all platforms by developer 4A Games. You'll need the base game in order to play it, and if you happen to own the Metro Exodus Expansion Pass (opens in new tab), you'll unlock access to it immediately.

The DLC follows the character Sam as attempts to find a way to get back to the USA from Russia after he starts to believe there's a chance his family survived the nuclear war that originally ravaged the world. Most of the narrative occurs in the port city of Vladivostok as Sam tries to find a way to sail back to the USA with. Like the other urban locations in the Metro series, Vladivostok was thoroughly damaged by the bombings, so the city is sure to offer an immersive post-apocalyptic gameplay experience.

The base game of Metro Exodus is available for varying prices depending on the platform you choose (it's on sale on the Epic Games Store at the time of writing), while the Sam's Story DLC is available for $18.
