The fact that 4A Games I was working on an improved version of Metro Exodus it was something that it was already unveiled last November. At that time, some of the improvements that it would include in Xbox Series X / S and in PS5 were indicated, but the company wanted to deepen even more about everything we can expect from Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition.
As he has wanted to detail in his official website, your intention with this enhanced edition is that take full advantage of ray-tracing technology in order to offer a complete experience both on next-generation consoles and high-end PCs.
In this way he has created a new lighting system with a series of optimizations to make it look even more realistic in this particular section. What’s more, in the PC version it ensures having taken these types of improvements to the limit in order to take full advantage of Nvidia and AMD’s ray-traced compatible hardware.
In the case of the version for PS5 Y Xbox series x, Metro Exodus will update move to 60 fps in 4K. Likewise, the loading times will also be reduced considerably, the textures will be better and it will also be compatible with the functions of the DualSense of PlayStation 5. For its part, in Xbox Series S the image will have a resolution of 1080p with the rest of visual improvements, although at the moment it has not been determined how many fps it will reach.
As for those who play on PC, it will be essential have a graphics card that is compatible ray-traced for the update to work properly. This implies that the edition will appear in the store as a separate product, which does not mean that all those who already have their copy for compatible will be able to free download these improvements.
Mind you, Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition is expected to land on PC, via Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG, at some point in time. this spring. On the other hand, those who have the game for consoles, who also will receive this update for free, they will have to wait until late 2021.
