Deep Silver and 4A Games announced today that Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition will release for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S on June 18, 2021. The new release will feature 4K and 60FPS gameplay with ray-traced lighting, as well as platform-specific enhancements.
The base game and DLC expansions will feature Ray Traced Global Illumination and the Ray Traced Emissive Lighting techniques featured in the original release of Metro Exodus and “The Two Colonels” expansion across all content.
4A Games affirms that next-gen consoles will also feature SSD optimizations, 4K texture packs, spatial audio and controller latency improvements on Xbox, and support for the haptic features of the PlayStation 5 DualSense controller.
In a major update for Metro fans, we are pleased to announce the launch of the Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition, the radical update which harnesses the power of Ray Tracing capable GPUs to deliver an incredible visual upgrade.
Alongside this, we can also announce the Metro Exodus Complete Edition – a physical Gen 9 version of Metro Exodus, including all Expansions, which will launch alongside the free upgrade for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 on June 18 2021.
Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition offers additional Ray Tracing features including Advanced Ray Traced Reflections and support for the much-requested DLSS 2.0 on NVIDIA hardware, which offers sharper image details and increased framerates and display resolutions. Further collaborating with NVIDIA, this update improves our existing Ray Traced Global Illumination tech innovated with the original release of Metro Exodus to make every light source fully Ray Traced and implements our RT Emissive tech from “The Two Colonels” throughout the game.
This upgrade is so extensive it will require a Ray Tracing capable GPU as the minimum spec and will be delivered 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.
Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition for Arrives on Consoles on June 18.
