Deep Silver and 4A Games have released the Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition, and it features big graphics updates for PCs with ray tracing-capable GPUs. The PC Enhanced Edition of the game is available for free to all owners of Metro Exodus’ original release on Steam, the Epic Games Store, Good Old Games, and the Microsoft Store.
Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition comes with additional ray tracing features, including advanced Ray Traced Reflections, as well as DLSS 2.0 support on NVIDIA hardware. 4A Games has also collaborated with NVIDIA to improved the game’s existing ray traced global illumination, making every light source fully ray traced.
Given these improvements though, the Enhanced Edition will need a ray tracing capable GPU as the minimum spec.
Aside from the Enhanced Edition for PC, Deep Silver and 4A Games have also announced that a PS5 and Xbox Series X|S upgrade will be released on June 18, 2021. This upgrade will add ray traced lighting, 4K/60FPS support, and faster loading times. The PS5 and Series X|S upgrade will be free to owners of the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game, respectively.
