    the first Metro Exodus expansion, The Two Colonels is available today for $8 on the Epic Games Store and Steam, or as part of the $25 Metro Exodus expansion pass...4A Games said when the Metro Exodus expansion The Two Colonels was announced that it would be more in the style of the first two games in the series, with linear gameplay in "claustrophobic environments."

    The second expansion, Sam's Story, will follow the adventures of a US Marine who was serving at the Moscow embassy when the bombs fell, as he finally begins his journey home...it's expected to be out in early 2020...

    DLC still unplayable on EGS going on almost 24hrs now even after multiple announcements it's "fixed", particularly the Gold/Aurora editions that were supposed to include the DLC.

    But working fine on Steam.

    Two Colonels seems like a return to the 2033 gameplay...seems like a nice pickup for $8

    So I played a couple hours of this game on my OLED with graphics maxed and it looks gorgeous! My problem is; it doesn't keep my interest. Anyone else find the game extremely linear, scripted and boring?

    It's been in the works for a long time now. Dmitry Glukhovsky, author of the books, has shot down numerous scripts over the years, including one recently that tried to set the story in the US while using racist overtones.

    Here's the latest news since Comix didn't provide a link and for context for those who have him on ignore.

    https://variety.com/2019/film/global/metro-2033-movie-1203311748/

    It's being produced by Russian media company Gazprom Media Holding, will start filming next year, will premiere in Russia in 2022, and is intended for a worldwide release.

    Regular game I didn't try the DLC just yet I'm wondering why the DLC is 24.99 for the complete and 8.99 for the individual.

    I just picked this up as part of the Xbox for PC beta thing...seems alright so far, though once the game gets into the open world, the pacing really suffers. It sucks having to find a workbench to clean your weapons every 10 minutes, otherwise they just jam like crazy.

    I never had that problem, although I did a no-kill (except for mandatory) areas, as such I did not use weapons much
