Available as a separate product since a ray traced GPU is mandatory.
4A Games’ Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition has a release date and it’s actually quite soon. The updated version arrives on May 6th for Steam, Epic Games Store GOG and the Microsoft Store with base game owners receiving it for free. Advanced Ray Traced Reflections, DLSS 2.0 support and improvements to the developer’s Ray Traced Global Illumination technology has also been made.
This means that every light source is now fully ray traced. Since this version requires a GPU capable of ray tracing, it will release as a separate game. Taking into account the base game and its DLC, players are looking at about 80 GB of installation space required. Unfortunately, the PC Enhanced Edition won’t be coming to Google Stadia or Amazon Luna.
Furthermore, AMD Super Resolution won’t be supported since it’s not compatible with the developer’s rendering techniques. “However we have our own Temporal based reconstruction tech implemented that natively provides the same or better image quality benefits for all hardware.” Also, in case you’re wondering, there are no plans to add ray tracing to Metro Redux (which includes Metro 2033 Redux and Metro Last Light Redux).
Metro Exodus is currently available for Xbox One, PS4, PC, Stadia and Amazon Luna. It will receive Xbox Series X/S and PS5 support later this year, which promises 4K/60 FPS with ray tracing.
