Metro Exodus took us out of the tunnels into big open spaces and 4A Games said that The Two Colonels expansion would be a lot more like the first two games in the series with “claustrophobic environments”. Welcome back to dark tunnels, small spaces and enemies rushing at you from the gloom.
The Two Colonels is set in the tunnels under Novosibirsk. Colonel Khlebnikov is there to visit his son Kirill but finds people in dire straits. With Radiation poisoning and mutant attacks getting worse, Khlebnikov can’t help but try to improve things. Now Colonel Miller is here a year later, trying to retrace those footsteps to find out what happened.
Get ready for dark tunnels, enemies rushing at you in tight, confined spaces and that feeling of oppression of being in tunnels that appear hostile and almost alive, like they would vomit you out if they had a choice.
To deal with all the nasties in the tunnels, you have a flamethrower, which is very much a combination of dealing damage and a light source. Maybe not the best light source but down here, I will take anything.
Metro Exodus: The Two Colonels is available right now, either purchased on its own or as part of the expansion pass.
