May’s Stadia Pro games include Zombie Army 4: Dead War, SteamWorld Heist, and The Turing Test that are all claimable on 1 May. Thumper will be leaving Stadia Pro at the end of April.

Metro Exodus: Sam’s Story DLC: Developer 4A games revealed that Metro Exodus DLC, Metro Exodus: Sam’s Story, is going to be released on 11 February.The majority of the expansion will take place in the port city of Vladivostok — strongly suggesting that Sam is going to try and find a naval vessel of some sort to sail his way home. It’s unknown how heavily this location was bombed during the nuclear war, but since the city is the headquarters of the Russian Pacific Fleet, it’s likely that it was devastated as much as Moscow was. The page on the Metro Exodus website describes Vladivostok’s “tsunami ravaged harbours, ruined industrial buildings, and crumbling residential districts,” so the journey won’t be an easy one. In a press release given by 4A Games, the expansion is also going to offer “new characters, weapons and mutant variants, in a huge, non-linear environment that offers hours of gameplay.” I’m beyond stoked to see how this DLC turns out, as the first one was fantastic.
