4A Games has confirmed that the second DLC is prepped to go, and introduces US Marine Sam Branskill as its new post-apocalyptic protagonist.
Sam’s Story, according to the expansion blurb, tells of “his journey through Vladivostok on his mission to find his way home to the USA”. Branskill made his narrative debut in the Metro 2035 novel and joins Artyom’s company on the Aurora in the sequel game’s campaign.
Sam has long dreamed of returning to his homeland, and maybe finding his family 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 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. 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.
