It is the year 2034…
Beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside – and within.

Mutants stalk the catacombs beneath the desolate surface, and hunt amidst the poisoned skies above. But rather than stand united, the station-cities of the Metro are locked in a struggle for the ultimate power, a doomsday device from the military vaults of D6. A civil war is stirring that could wipe humanity from the face of the earth forever.

As Artyom, burdened by guilt but driven by hope, you hold the key to our survival – the last light in our darkest hour…

What’s more awesome than being able to play as a dog? That doesn’t sound fun? What if we made it a robot dog… Sound better? Good. From what I could gather about the DLC you’ll be playing the DLC as a robotic dog previously known as LQ-84i and you will be able to explore in a side mission from this pooches point of view. We can call it an origin story of sorts. New weapons and moves are promised along with a new boss fight. Apologies for lack of a better description but I couldn’t find anything official from their main site.
