“Didn’t think Metro Exodus could look better? Hold our vodka.”
Metro Exodus developer 4A Games has announced a PC Enhanced Edition of the first-person shooter. As with the versions coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S, this updated PC edition will be offered as a free upgrade.
We have built a brand new Full Ray Traced Lighting Pipeline that provides a range of optimizations, upgrades and new features to Ray Traced Global Illumination and Emissive Lighting that we were pioneering with the original release of Metro Exodus, as well as an upgraded implementation of our powerful Temporal Reconstruction technology to further increase resolution, visual detail and performance, “4A Games wrote in a blog post about the new versions.
On consoles, Metro Exodus will run with beam tracking at 60FPS. It hits 4K on PS5 and Series X and “targets” 1080p on Series S. You will be able to adjust the game’s FOV, and there will be haptic feedback on the PS5 DualSense controller.
There is no release date for these console editions, although they are still free upgrades. The Xbox version of the game will be released via Smart Delivery.
A table showing all the many visual upgrades that come with the new console and PC Enhanced Edition versions of the game shows only two differences on PC: “advanced ray traced reflections” and DLSS 2.0 support.
Meanwhile, a Mac version of Metro Exodus will arrive via the Apple Store, Steam and Epic Games Store in March. A Linux version will be launched via Steam later this year.
