Deep Silver and 4a Games have announced that the first story DLC for the post-apocalyptic First Person Shooter is now available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
The Two Colonels follows the journey and experiences of Colonel Khlebnikov during the last days of life in Novosibirsk, which Colonel Miller retraces a year later.
A quick word of warning: if you have not yet completed the Metro Exodus campaign, the below contains spoilers.
Just below the surface, under the dead city of Novosibirsk, Khlebnikov makes his way home to his son, Kirill, for New Year’s Eve.
But all is not well with the people here: the slime is further consuming the tunnels, mutant attacks appear to be on the rise and the precious ‘green stuff’ that protects the people from radiation poisoning is running low. In order to secure the survival of any of the people, those in charge may need to take drastic measures…
The Two Colonels contains classic Metro gameplay, exploring the claustrophobic environments of Novosibirsk, with all the hair-raising tension players expect from the Metro series.
This story also features a brand new weapon to fight the slime and worms of the tunnels – the deadly flamethrower. Like the Tikhar it needs to be pumped up to maintain its power, but can really light up a room.
The second story-based DLC is expected to release in early 2020.
