Metro Exodus DLC Will Explore Side Stories via Different Characters

Metro Exodus

4A Games has outlined the two major DLC expansions that Metro Exodus will receive across the coming year.

These packs will follow the same model as the DLC from the previous game, Metro: Last Light, in shifting the focus away from series protagonist Artyom.

The first piece of content, ‘The Two Colonels’ is slated to arrive late this year and will place players in the shoes of Colonel Khlebnikov as he seeks to reunite with his son in Novosibirsk a year before the events of the main game. This chapter will be linear and will introduce the flame thrower as a new weapon.

Meanwhile, the second expansion, ‘Sam’s Story’ will release early next year. This chapter will introduce a new sandbox level based on Vladivostok and will star US Marine Sam as he sets out from the Aurora to seek a way to return home.

These two content drops promise to add hours of fresh content to Metro Exodus, which OnlySP’s Daniel Pereira called “one of the greatest narrative survival horror experiences present within a video game” in his 4/5 review earlier this year.

Cyberpunk 2077 Will Have Witcher-like Expansions

Published

 on

CD Projekt Red’s UI Coordinator, Alvin Liu, spoke with Prima Games about the future of Cyberpunk 2077 and the possibility of post-launch expansions.

During E3 2019, co-founder of CD Projekt Red, Red Marcin Iwiński, briefly touched upon the existence of DLC plans for Cyberpunk 2077 by disclosing the project’s roadmap. Liu, however, now confirms that there are talks happening within the company about expansions despite the main focus still revolving around the base game. Liu also promises that Cyberpunk 2077 will have a satisfying conclusion that resolves the conflicts presented within the story and that nothing is being intentionally withheld in order to add it as DLC later.

“We want to make sure everything’s complete, but we also want to build open worlds. I know when I was playing The Witcher 3 and I finished everything, I still want to know what everyone was up to,” Liu said. “I think we’re going to have opportunities like that as well for Cyberpunk 2077.”

Liu explains that the expansions for The Witcher 3 helped flush out the open world by focusing on secondary characters from both the books and previous games. In terms of scale, the second and final expansion for The Witcher 3 was as big as the entirety of The Witcher 2, so the possible scope for Cyberpunk 2077‘s post-game content is limitless.
