Metro Exodus had a dubious start back in 2019. Originally offered as a pre-order on Steam everything seemed normal. About a month before release shocking news came about as it became an Epic Games Store Exclusive. Toxicity arose around the internet as people began to review bomb it on Steam. As it was also one of the first games to include NVIDIA’s new ray tracing features it unfortunately has some performance issues. Users noted that NVIDIA’s new DLSS technique caused increased blurred images.

Just as the game progresses its way to spring and summer so did its improvements. Patches and and its first DLC,The Two Colonels ensued. Things have moved along and now a year later Metro Exodus is leaving its exclusive status and ready to arrive at Steam. You will be able to join Artyom and company on Steam as of February 15th.

DLC News

The fun doesn’t stop there for fans of the franchise. The final paid DLC will become available on February 11th. It seems that 4A games feel that the week of Valentines Day should have a more apocalyptic feel to it. Whereas the first DLC was a small dungeon crawler style in the vein of past Metro Games this new one will use more a sandbox style. Sam’s story will focus around one Artyom team who tries to make the journey back home.

From the Metro Exodus website:

“Sam has long dreamed of returning to his homeland, and maybe finding his family alive. Sam makes his way away from the Aurora in search of a way back to the USA, arriving at the remains of Vladivostok’s tsunami ravaged harbours, ruined industrial buildings, and crumbling residential districts.”

Sam’s Story does not presently have price or download size announced. You can however, purchase the season pass for around $25 via either EGS, Steam, or Microsoft Store. No news for GOG release yet.

  1. It will be interesting to see if sales jump up like they did with RDR2. On the other hand, RDR2 didn’t take a year to come to Steam.

    I totally agree. The other factor to be seen will be how many fans were are still too alienated to want to get it now.

    The other half of that equation is the GPU to run it. If you want to see it at its best in either 1440p or 4K it needs a powerful GPU. Metro is like that as well but not quite as much. DLSS has come a long way from launch and can really help with performance. No such tricks for RDR2.
