Metro Exodus on PS5, Xbox Series X has 4K, 60FPS, ray-tracing

All at once.

Metro Exodus will head to PS5 and Xbox Series S & X with a series of enhancements including 4K, 60FPS and ray-tracing, Deep Silver and 4A Games today confirmed. Best yet, those enhancements will all be offered at the same time and not through multiple performance modes.

The current-gen experience will be offered as a free update to those who already own Metro Exodus on Xbox One or PS4 and will run at 4K and 60FPS (frames-per-second) with full ray-tracing on both PS5 and Xbox Series X.

“The base game and DLC expansions will feature both our ground-breaking Ray Traced Global Illumination (RTGI) and the Ray Traced Emissive Lighting techniques pioneered in The Two Colonels expansion across all content,” a statement reads.

The Xbox Series S is “targeting” 1080p but will offer 60FPS and full ray-tracing as well.

Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition on PC

The news comes as 4A and Deep Silver also confirmed that Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition will be offered on PC, free to those who already own the original version of the game on Epic Games Store, Steam, and GoG.

“For PC players, we’re taking advantage of our new Fully Ray Traced Lighting Pipeline and the latest GPU-capable hardware from NVIDIA and AMD to offer the ultimate Ray Traced experience – the Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition,” the update reads.

“This upgrade is so extensive, it will require a Ray Tracing capable GPU as the minimum spec, and we will need to deliver this version as a separate product – it is not a simple ‘patch’ to the base game –  instead it will be offered as an extra entitlement to all existing Metro Exodus PC players.

“The PC Enhanced Edition will offer additional Ray Tracing features, including Advanced Ray Traced Reflections and support for DLSS 2.0 on NVIDIA hardware, which offers sharper image details and increased framerates and display resolutions.”

The upgraded versions of Metro Exodus are expected later this year.
